Do you feel a sense of accomplishment when you finish a game?

you know you've struggled or not and played for hours upon hours, do you get that little bit of joy knowing you finished a hard or even easy game?

i think i do. finished Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, for what i realized was a 2nd time and it feels good to finish it and then move on to something else. other games give me that satisfaction as well.

i realize it's a small thing in the game of life, but it's something that you may have struggled and frustrated with and then overcome it...

Why play otherwise?

some people play bc it's the newest thing around, get into it, don't love it and then slog to the finish line just to say that's done...

Yeah, I'm not going to invest a bunch more hours into a game I don't like just to "finish it".

That is just a waste of very limited time that does not make sense.

With everything except sandbox games, oddly enough. Eventually "finishing" those games, insomuch as finishing the game equals completing the main storyline, feels like an obligation rather than an accomplishment.
