Video: Games That We Absolutely Want To Play - But Then We Don't
"I am extremely keen to get involved in the wacky and stylish Japanese setting of Persona 5 and to live a double life underground in Tokyo as a high school student, but the playing time of 100 hours and more has so far prevented me from starting at all."
Johannes Repp's opinion: "I don't want to take a long game"
“Unfortunately, I couldn't get Skyrim and Oblivion up and running on my PC at the time. Now my Pile of Shame is so big that I don't really want to take up such a large game. I just don't have the time. The Elder Scrolls world is very interesting and I would really like to jump into it, but rushing through the titles or playing with long breaks would just not do it justice. The same goes for the Witcher and Gothic games."

Lisa Fleischer's opinion: "I am afraid that I will lose myself in it and that I won't play anything else."
"World of Warcraft is really appealing to me. I even started for a couple of hours, but stopped having a lot of fun. The reason: I am afraid that I will lose myself in it and play nothing else - and there are so many other great games. In general, I'm fascinated by huge MMOs like Eve Online, but I don't dare to get in because the community is already so solid and certainly requires players to dive regularly. But I don't have time for that, I have so many games and also numerous other hobbies, so I just don't want to commit myself so strictly to a game. So I couldn't do it justice at all - and that's why I completely stay away from it.
And then there are such online beat 'em ups as Tekken 7, whose single player modes I have played, but whose online lobby I always bite my teeth at. It fascinates me how other players can cut themselves into the gameplay so that they can keep up with pros. I get into the online modes, however, always so much on the mouth that I so am discouraged that I weglege the game immediately. Too bad, because I actually love beat 'em ups.
Because I'm a scaredy dog, Slender is one of them. The game has always fascinated me because of the myth behind it, which even made it into pop culture. I still remember how friends of mine played and hated Slender who had hardly ever played video games before. Nevertheless, as an old video game bunny, I never dared to do it - simply because my motor skills are completely blocked by horror games due to fear and I simply cannot enjoy the experience. Fortunately, there are Let's Plays."

"Sometime … sometime! I've always wanted to play The Elder Scrolls: Daggerfall because it a) looks like my favorite childhood RPGs and b) I'm already a big The Elder Scrolls fan who would love to learn more about the series. Now there are old games to be old = " - and I have never played it because I am afraid that I will stop after ten minutes. Well. A let's play would be an idea! I would only have to find the right Let's Player for it."

Sophie Jordan: "The slow gameplay gives me a stomach ache."
Sometimes I didn't know the problem. I just played games I wanted to play. No matter if I was afraid it could get bad or take too long. I'm a fan of Open World and long stories - for God's sake, I sometimes play three to four hours of Red Dead Redemption 2, just ride around and still go to Chapter 2. But strangely, the slow gameplay of Death Stranding gives me a big stomachache. My anticipation for the game was huge, but the more I learned about Death Stranding and the gameplay mechanics, I've been hesitating ever since.
Walk from point A to point B, deliver the parcels, take parcels, take enough breaks, calm BB, don't let the ghosts catch you, don't look at Norman Reedus in the crotch - okay, that's a really funny feature, but what I want to say, it sounds pretty repetitive and unspectacular. Why do I want to play it anyway? The story. Since the trailer I want to find out what the baby, the ghosts and the character Sam Bridges are all about. The complex story advertised by Hideo Kojima is praised by many and is said to have a mind-blowing ending. Since I don't want to experience the story through Let's Plays or complete solutions, I probably have no choice but to play the game myself at some point.

So what is the answer to the riddle? To be honest, I don't know. On the one hand, developers should be honored to try to do justice to their games and to invest the leisure and time in them. But are these games really worth it if you have to bend completely to start playing? We can only hope that at some point in our lives we will face the challenge. Even if we are 100 years old = ", these games must be ended.
