GamerSushi Asks: Are You A Streaker?

Now before you shout, “YES!” and grab your trenchcoat and sunglasses, allow me to explain.

A streaker, in this definition, is someone who plays a game consistently for a long time, but if another game is played, the first one loses all appeal. For example, after beating Final Fantasy XIII, I continued to play, doing side missions and hunting down monsters. But, once I played Alpha Protocol and beat it, all desire to play Final Fantasy XIII is gone for right now. I’m sure it will come back again sometime, but I’ve noticed that I sometimes have to maintain a streak of playing a game every day and if I stop, I find that I don’t want to play as much as I used to.

Do you guys ever experience anything like this? Are you streakers?

  1. Yeah, I experience this frequently. I’m trying to finish Mass Effect (yeah, I’m behind the curve, don’t look at me like that!) and I’m also flipping off between Far Cry 2 and then Sins of a Solar Empire on my PC. It’s kind of hard to get anything done.

  2. Hmm, I’m not sure if I am or not. I think I might be, though, because the longer I stay away from certain titles, the less likely I am to go back to them any time soon.

    Right now, for instance, I am in the middle of Red Dead Redemption. However, I haven’t gotten to play it in well over a week, so some of the steam is gone. I now have Alan Wake on the way and God of War 3 sitting on my TV stand. I’m tempted to go ahead and get GoW3 out of the way, because once Alan Wake gets here, I’m more likely to play RDR and then Alan Wake first. All of this is bouncing around in my head simply because I’ve lost that fire for RDR momentarily. Though I’m sure if I started it back up tonight I’d be sucked right back in.

  3. Lets just say, when it comes to summer its amazing how many games on the internet are completely free and very well made

  4. Happens to me all the time, but Counter-Strike is still the game I go back to in between almost every day. Currently Oblivion is taking me over.
