What Do You Do When You’ve Finished A Game?
It is by no means a mystery or state secret – humans experience everything differently with differing variations of breathless enthusiasm.
I’ve mentioned in the past that it is tremendously easy for me to “climb” into a narrative – be it a film, book or game. I love the power these entertainment media often possess. However, today I’d like to ask you something.

What do you do once you’ve completed a game?
Speaking from personal experiences; there is quite a bunch of gaming related things to do once I’ve sat through the credits. In some cases, I started a second playthrough without a second’s hesitation or perhaps sometimes I take the disc out of the tray, put it to rest for a period of time to cuddle with its buddies and wonder about the next game in which to engross myself.
Earlier this year, there was a game with which I experienced a peculiar sense of “What now…?” after the game was finished. A prolonged waiting period for the game may be the cause as well as becoming all the more excited as the release date came closer. Some might see this as quite sad, but I thought of it as a game that did its job of immersing me to the fullest sense of the word. (As a result I played it five times. Shh… Don’t tell anyone.)
On the flip side, we have games that are in desperate need of more than a few minutes in the microwave upon completion. I’ve never done that, but judging from the feedback regarding Aliens: Colonial Marines – this may not be impossible in many cases.
So, here I stand with a gigantic question mark above my noggin – what is your general next step after you’ve finished a game? (Please include ALL juicy details.)
