    Honestly, Fortnite. I don't particularly care for battle royales, and I especially don't like how casual it is, but it's just so much more convenient than PUBG and Warzone, which are way harder to run even on well over the minimum specs, and Apex Legends which just feels weird to me. But Fortnite being easy to run and on every platform makes it an easy to pick up shooter.

    Modern main series Pokémon games as well. Between Alola not having gyms, and Galar not having half the Pokédex (we're still missing a lot of mons) and just generally being boring and easy to play through I've given up hope that new games will be any good. But I like multiplayer battling, and the stuff I like to use is mostly in the game now, so I put up with it.

    I played Genshin Impact since the last closed beta, and LOVE the gameplay. Despite this, and I cannot quite put my finger on it why, I cannot seem to pick it back up after getting sidetracked with another Android game. I desperately want to participate in all the new events, too. So, a counter-counter-question:
    Are any of you like this with any game(s), and if so, did you ever get back to playing said game(s)? Asking for my uncle that works at Nintendo.

    I have less than 10% of my games completed, so this happens a lot

    it's awesome, like monopoly on steroids but without the monotony


    anyway
    i stopped playing games i dont like, there were games i played for the music/graphics, for completion, or just because theyre made to addict ( any gacha game ever )
    but i learned to just let go and instead spend time on enjoyable stuff
    completely dropped phone games/dopamine pumps and hollow sequel bait machines like the shantae games

    it feels good.

    I restarted Bahamut Lagoon for the SNES maybe 20 times over the course of 15 years or so... and FINALLY finished it this year after over a year of having it just paused on the final boss... and I don't really like the game. It's okay.

    There are some parts that are Melancholic
    Then there are more parts where you want to smash your fist through the monitor.

    recently, Genshin Impact. I don't enjoy gacha games all too much and I don't like to grind for things for weeks just to get something good. The only reason I still play it is because my favorite JP voice actress (Eri Kitamura) voices the 5 star character Keqing which I was able to get a couple of months ago.

    Ark single player, until you can craft good weapons and armor. You will die 1,000,000 times. This dudes gaming device seems pretty frustrating too though.

    Happened to me with Breath of the Wild, played it on Wii U when it came out, loved it so much and played through probably 70% of it just enjoying the world while getting through the story. And at some point that ended, didn't fight Ganon, just wasn't playing for some reason. At some point I realized and went back strictly to fight Ganon and finish the game, but it just didn't feel the same, and every time since playing it through CEMU or whatnot, no matter how amazing the game runs/looks/feels it just doesn't give me the same satisfaction.
