On Game Length vs Fun Time ➶

I rarely finish games as I often prefer their beginnings, the early-game gameplay, to middle and late play.

In Elite, for example, I loved flying the small, more maneuverable ships, getting better weapons, larger cargo holds, and so on. And more credits made a big difference!

In the middle and later game the grind got grindy, and I played less, though this was also because of the amount of good video games that I want to try the beginning of.

Games that grab me and carry me to their endings have excellent mechanics that feel rewarding in moment-to-moment gameplay and an interesting story or feeling about their world.

The last ones I remember that I finished were Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and Noita.
