Am I the only one like this?
The poll about reading quests or not made me think about this.
I absolutely love immersing myself in the story of a great game - but I tend to forget 99% of it only hours or a few days after playing. Even with games that are dear to my heart BECAUSE of the story - like Last of Us and Bioshock Infinite - I only really remember the core plot and some bits and pieces. The rest just leaves my mind almost immediately.
Personally, I think it's because of the amount of games I've played in my life. I've been a gamer for 33 years now - and I've played, literally, thousands of games. So, there's no way I'd be able to remember the full story of each one.
For MMO quests, it's even worse. I mean, I love the Duskwood quests in WoW - for instance - but I actually don't remember much in way of detail. I know there's this... guy that something bad happened to, and it involved his wife or whatever. But that's about it. All I remember is that I loved reading about it
Before someone asks: No, I don't have a general memory problem. Most would say I have a very good memory, and I have an unusually ability to retain names and words of all kinds - and I instantly recognise faces almost no matter how insignificant they might have been.
Do you guys manage to remember most or all of the stories you enjoy?
