inFamous Encourages Addictive Personalities
Ah, remember the good ol' days when we were all young with lots of time on our hands? And we'd go all day - with only a few short breaks - playing our latest favorite video game? I remember doing it with Final Fantasy Tactics.
These days, though, you don't hear much about "binge gaming" anymore, and it's probably due to the fact that with the ever-rising average age of participation, the normal gamer simply doesn't have the time for such an activity. But according to some feedback we're seeing around the Internet, including the following passage taken from the PlayStation forums and posted at BeefJack, inFamous is rekindling some old "please God, don't make me stop!" desires:
"I really started getting into the game today at about 8am or so and I totally got sucked in for about 6hrs straight. At one point just told everyone not pass calls through me ’till further notice. This game gets you in some zone where, like in addictive online shooter games you call for 'just one more round,' this game grabs you with 'Just… one… more… mission and I’ll stop...this time for sure' before you know it time has flown by."
You know, despite my increasing time restraints, I can totally relate. I played this bad boy for three and a half hours the other day, and I haven't done that since Final Fantasy XII several years ago. I don't think I've done it with any game of this new generation, although I will say I stopped playing certain titles - like MGS4 - just so I could savor the flavor more. So how's about you? Is inFamous really "sucking you in?" Or have you not tried it yet, you bad gamer you? That whole, "okay, just one more mission" thing definitely got me...
