Hm, I also find myself rushing through games and not finding any that stick. Comes with age?

Age perhaps and also the completely overwhelming choice of games to play. Ten years ago an exceptional game might have consumed my attention for several weeks. Today even great games have to fight a slew of equally good titles to get any attention.

I suspect this is a transition phase for my gaming. I just haven't figured out yet what it is transitioning to but it probably involves playing fewer different games. I am half tempted to give up on newer releases and simply focus on classics of the past. Not because I think the games of today are bad. I don't I think they are excellent but focussing on retro games reduces the choice to a more manageable level.

(same person as above) well give Don't Starve a try. Fun and absolutely time consuming! :D

Hi Eutheos, I have read a bit about the game and I will definitely look out for it.
