Scratching the Gaming Itch
What does it take for me to feel like I've done enough in game and can set it down for a bit?
Honestly, I'm not very good at doing this. I have an addictive personality so I have to be very careful with my gaming. I will often get so into a game that unless there's something extremely urgent going on that's all I'm doing for a few days.
While I definitely have an addictive personality, I also find that completing the main storyline of a game often helps me to get over the hump of not wanting to do anything but play that specific game. It also helps me move on to another game. Often I'll start games and never finish them, then I feel like I'm going to need to go back at some point to do so. When I finish the game the first time, unless it was a super amazing game I can set it aside and feel okay doing so.
