I wish we had some sort of universal internet account where we could store things from various games and whatnot, but all things come to a close eventually, and that would be like trying to avoid death.
I used to play for the excitement. It was a whole lot simpler just searching for an engaging game to play.
I don’t even know why I play nowadays, but the complexity is accompanied by a greater reward. I tend to play things I can safely make an emotional investment in, and they pay dividends.
“It’s just a game,” doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get emotionally involved. It just means you need to pick your battles better if you’re looking for a happier outcome.
