Rogue76 commented on Soapbox: Why Do We Treat Gaming Like a Chore?:

This is a great article! I was just thinking the other day, "Man, my backlog of games is out of control, maybe I should put on the calendar what games I plan to play, and not buy a new game until I beat several of the games I have mapped out to beat.". Then a new game comes out, I want to buy it, and I do. Partly because as you mentioned, I want to be part of the conversation that happens with new games, and partly because well...I love video games. That's my vice. I don't drink. I don't spend money on cars or tools. It's video games. Part of my love for games is that I love being immersed in a whole new world. But if I find myself frustrated because I didn't get a certain trophy or complete a certain quest, I quit, thinking, " I'll come back to it later". And that's when I feel it's a chore rather than having fun. I feel guilty because 1) other people completed the trophy, why can't I? 2)other people seemed to enjoy getting that trophy, why can't I?

I begin to think there's something wrong with me or that if I give it one more go, something will click and I'll get the enjoyment of playing the game. All too often I find it more frustrating and annoying, and and a few days/weeks/months later I repeat the whole cycle again.

I'm going to be 40 this year (yikes) and I feel that if I'm going to say that I'm a life long gamer, that I've been gaming since I could basically walk (I owned a pong machine, my first gaming system) and if that is what "defines" me, then I better enjoy completing the game and getting that trophy!

Just found out my brother has ff14 so we'll be playing that this weekend. This game is much better when you play with someone you know.

Waiting for the psplus games to finish downloading. Looking forward to Grid:autosport. I will say, I was disappointed in Grid 2.

Maybe if I have time, i'll jump into Helldivers.

My backlog of games is getting out of control. I started to play Sleeping Dogs, and I'm not a prude, but man all the swearing and adults themed conversations made me stop playing. I don't mind swearing, but to swear just for the sake of swearing just seems like poor writing...maybe the story will get better, but right now I'm not impressed.

I'll probably play some Disney infinity 3.0 to help cleanse my soul

I started to go through some of my old games looking for a co-op online game to play with my best friend who lives far away. We've settled on Defiance. I've owned the game for a while and he can download it for free. I'm enjoying the game. I'll probably play some Diablo 3 as well.

Thank you for producing such a great product. What I really love about this site is the community aspect, the fact that not only the members interact with each other, but your staff also takes the time to read comments and respond is really awesome.

The articles posted here are fantastic. Before I purchase any game I always read your reviews first, and I haven't been disappointed.

Merry Christmas everyone at Pushsquare!

Disney Infinity for me. I'm getting Venom and my daughter is getting Elsa and Anna. I got my wife Aladdin. Now that I think of it, I may not get a chance to play if my family gets characters they'll want to play. Foiled again by Christmas!

Have a wonderful Christmas everyone!

@Zep_Fan_81 I do get objections. She plays iPad games, and mostly games that help her count and problem solve. I think that if you forbid anything it'll make things worse. I think there's anything wrong if you use technology as a learning tool and have fun doing it. As you said, the world we live in and future generations, technology is going to be a big part of that world.

@Zep_Fan_81 my daughter is 3 as well. She plays with me (she has Rupunzel but is getting Elsa and Anna for Christmas, while I'm going to be getting Venom). She has a hard time running around in the game, but I just pick her character up and carry her until we get to a place with enemies, which she's pretty good at hitting the triangle button 😉

@Zep_Fan_81 it is the Marvel one. I like it. On Black Friday I asked my father in law to get the game for me, since he was out shopping before me. He got the 1.0 edition by mistake. I downloaded 2.0 on PSN. I haven't played any Marvel characters yet, but the amout of content imo is amazing. There is plenty for you to build, but if you don't want to build stuff, you can go out and download games others have made. I think one complaint I've heard and read is the lack of play sets for 2.0 starter pack. (Starter pack for 1.0 came with 3 play sets). But I mainly play in the toy box, which I feel is the real value of the game and most fun.

Kingdoms of amalur. The expansions are discounted for this weekend so it gave me the opportunity to play it again...

I switched out my harddrive since the last time I played the game, so now I'm starting over. But that's ok, it's a fun game so I don't mind.

@get2sammyb I would think that with all the video game playing, your dexterity would only increase as you get older .

I'm going to be playing some WWE 2k14 and I just picked up Fallout 3 for 5 bucks. I played Fallout 1&2, and loved them. Looking forward to trying out 3.
