5 Tips To Maximize Your Game Time

When you’re finally ready to play a game you’re going to want to spend as much of that time playing as possible. And you’re going to want to make it count. Don’t waste your game time.

  1. Don’t spend time doing side quests if your goal is to complete the main story. Stay on task and save the DLC for later.
  2. Don’t waste time trying every possible combination if you’re stuck. Embrace assistance by reading an FAQ or watching a walkthrough video.
  3. Do play on easy difficulty, if you’re not in it for the challenge. You’ll get through the game faster and still be able to enjoy it.
  4. Don’t get distracted and don’t multitask. You’ll get less done and gain less enjoyment from it.
  5. Do prepare for future sessions by taking notes.

5 Guilt-Free Reasons To Purge A Game from Your Backlog

  1. The game is too difficult, even when using a guide.
  2. It’s not the game you thought it was.
  3. Technical issues are overtaking your enjoyment of the game. Bad controls, a clumsy mechanic, anything that feels more like work than a game, actual bugs or glitches.
  4. You’ve reached a level of completion that you are satisfied with, even if you didn’t finish.
  5. You’re not enjoying it. If you are feeling upset or sad when thinking about having to finish it, stop. A game should not make you have these feelings about playing it.
