People get all excited that they were the first to beat the game. “I beat the game in 4 hours” they say. “I beat it the first weekend” they boast. Well are you just running through the game, past all the monsters, skipping the important quests, the key story lines? Do you even know why you fought the big battle at the end? Or did you just skip over every important plot line in an effort to be ‘first’ to beat the game?
I’m curious how you guys play your games. Do you play to enjoy the game and to get the experience of what the developer was trying to portray? Or do you just try to beat it as fast as you can? Run up your gamerscore and get some fancy icons to display?
