I am uncomfortable playing games I have never played before.
However, I am also growing tired of the games I have played before.
How does your mind resolve such a dichotomy, if you theoretically experienced such? Perhaps this thought has occurred to you too, but if not, then what do you think? What gives?
I wonder if it's just that I am bringing a lot more stress to the table when I sit down to play these days. I also have vision and hearing losses, however minor, that are setting in and they alter the experience of playing games quite a bit.
So, expound on your choice: stick with what's boring and beatable, or die at what's new? I believe I know the general consensus of a sensible person is that new experiences are not to be feared but sought out, but I guess there are times when I just feel pulled in two directions at once. I'd most times rather replay something than play something I've not beaten or never played before.
Games that have no ending are a sometimes thing for me, such as Donkey Kong, but I've never been quite what you'd call a master of "endless high score" games.
