I finished watching the medabots anime and I got this sad weird feeling. Did anyone get that feeling, and if you did tell me :D

Pretty much the same:
Sad feeling when a game/anime ends and there is no continuation (TWEwY, Sword Art Online) and a rage-y feeling when a continuation does exist, but it will take forever to be translated in English/released in Europe (that is the situation mostly with Japanese games, for example, Dangan Ronpa 2).

I get that after finishing something long that I rather enjoyed, be it games, series or books. Usually finishing games makes me feel more accomplished than sad though.

Yeah, but games like pokemon, GTA.. etc dont give me that feelin' because you can play them anytime.

It's one of the reasons why I like music games: they never end <3 (almost literally in the case of osu and its thousands of available songs)

I always say, "I finished a game? Time to move on to something else before I replay this game." Of course the exceptions to this (to the best of my knowledge) are The $1000000 Pyramid *shudders* and Skyward Sword. Blech, never playing those games again.

I remember finishing the Clannad movie...
That was certainly a weird feeling. I never knew I could feel so violated by a piece of media before. The indiana jones south park episode is a good example of the level of violation.
True Tears also felt a little like that.

For good games I always get a weird feeling of satisfaction, happiness and sadness. Especially story driven ones. Could never describe how I felt when I finished Valkyria Chronicles and watched the ending scenes.

If it's good, you'll get feels when you finish it (and some during of course). What those feels are like depend entirely on the emotional direction of it.

Tales of Vesperia probably was my most epic of satisfaction feels, thanks to the absolutely epic boss fight I faced and very, very, very narrowly won. Felt great after I beat it even if I was sad it was over.

When I finish a big game I've been working at for days, sometimes even weeks, there's always a brief moment of '...well shit, now what?'. Then I look at the other parts of the huge backlog of games I've yet to finish and think 'I fucking love my life' and crack on with the next project.

It depends. if is a game that I have played in a long time then I feel like "YEAH, I FINALLY FINISHED THIS, NOW GO TO HELL I DON'T WANT TO SEE YOU AGAIN!!!!" or if is a game that I enjoyed until the last moment(Golden Sun saga for example) I fell anxious like "YEAH, NOW WERE IS THE SECUEL OF THIS?!!?!?!??!!??!" and if is a more short game is a "yeah did it, what's next on the list??". that's why I play many games at the same time, that way I can dump my rage playing more and that's why rhythm and fighter games master race, they never end.
anime is a different thing, you end up attached to the characters and fells sad knowing that is gonna end, that is enhanced if is a bad or sad open end. I let a tear out of my eyes in the last episode of Gunslinger Girl(then I read the manga and learned a lot of other things like that the anime has the episodes shuffled for dramatic effect but that's another story) and I felt pretty bad after finishing Shana 2nd and the third season was nowhere to be seen, I'm feeling the same way now with Chuu2.

  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages

    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air
