Most of us have been there. You're playing a game, having some fun, and then the fun gets sucked right out of it. Now you're bored.
What causes this?
For me, it's when I feel like instead of having an adventure, I'm just completing the next pre-assigned tasks that I am "supposed" to do at that level. They could be easy ones or hard ones, but it doesn't matter. I don't enjoy just completing the developer's "honey do" list for level 38, or whatever it may be.
Instead, I want to run about where I am not wanted. Go places I am not meant to go. Face real danger. Overcome tremendous adversity. Get my butt kicked and keep going. I want to experience the suspense, mystery and excitement like the fantasy literature which inspired these games.
My favorite memories are when games surprised me and scared me silly. Those "oh hell what was I thinking when I came in here" moments. I don't get many of those anymore because I am wrapped in the warm woolen blanket of "level appropriate" tasks to do.
Anyway, that's what bores me, but when does a game start to bore you?
