Do you have a favorite game that you play online?
I go through stages, where I will play a certain game for weeks, then tire of it and play something different, only to return to the original game after a few weeks. Did that just make sense? My favorite kinds of games are considered platform games, where you have to clear one level before you are able to move on to the next, harder level. Take the mario and luigi games, for instance. The first boards start out kind of simple, and then they get harder the further you get into the game. It is hard for me to start one of these types of games and not complete it.
I am playing a game right now where you have to switch different colored candies to make three or more in a row to clear them from the board. I believe I am on level 167, and I have been stuck on it for almost a week. I get so close to clearing it, which is very frustrating. But, I keep going back to it, because now I am determined to move up to the next level. It's personal now. And yes, I know I have a problem.
There are several platform games that I like to play on my son's playstation. I know it's supposed to be a guy thing, liking video games, but I love them. I can even kick my son's butt playing guitar hero. The only games I can't play are the racing games. I stink at those. No matter how hard I try, I can not steer the car. I always crash.
At least I am a good driver when I am in the real world. You know, where it counts.
