Gaming is a fantastic hobby. The worlds you see, the friends you make and the fun you have are all almost unparalleled by any other. Where gaming can fall down, as with many other of the hobbies we take on, is that it can cost a large amount of money and take up a massive amount of time. The difference between gaming and many other forms of enjoyment is that if you purchase a game for, say, $60 you feel obliged to spend a certain amount of time with it; something uncommon to other hobbies.
And at what stage do you call it a day? Did you enjoy the game? Did you enjoy it enough for $60? Do you return it? Trade it in? Or stick with your purchase until you feel you’ve had enough fun? It’s a problem exclusive to games and isn’t going away any time soon; there are simply too many games.
