Why do you play a game?
The other day i found myself playing Square Enix's Nier. While the game play leaves much to be desired i found myself unable to put it down. After beating the end boss and continuing to read the additional content i found what it was, the stunning score, the beautiful scenery, and most important the enthralling story.

After this i took a look at the rest of my gaming collection and while i do stock some low brow point and click shooters (which as i grow older find unbearable), I found that the rest were similar to nier in at least a few fashions, the vast epic story, the scenery, a few only brought and excellent score to the table.

So I ask what draws you into a game? Do you need the high octane fueled thrill ride, the ability too go from a farm boy to something short of god hood, or do you simply like to sit down and lose yourself in a vast world different from your own?

I used to play a lot of RPGs when I was younger. Getting to know the characters and travelling with them on a journey was great. I absolutely love the Final Fantasy series. They generally have a good story and excellent music.

A game which is repetitive is not fun.

Same with the Final Fantasy series, I absolutely love epic RPGs. I'm not sure whether the older I get the less interested I will be in them though. Since Final Fantasy games made such an impact on me when I was younger I've found it hard to find a similar thing that gets me so involved as FF did. I'm still searching...

That said I never used to be into shooters when I was younger at all but I'm starting to really see the appeal of them and think everyone should own, or at least play, one shooter at some point.

I prefer games that aren't too much of a challenge that it frustrates me so much. Medium difficulty and then I'm happy Smile

I play to forget, anything immersive is good, videogames are my equivalent of the Foreign Legion just without the inherrent risks.

I play games to relieve my stress and have new friends, but now since I played Uncharted Waters Online I found a new reason why do I play games is to learn more with our Ancient history. For me learning is fun especially when you're playing at the same time.

I play because i love being competitive, the online player vs player front of gaming is great for that, but the biggest thing for me is the story, if you can put a story in a game which you'll remember forever, one that makes you feel attached to the characters and world your in, well that's my definition of an amazing game.

I love the fact that you can do something most people won't be able to do in their life such as being a fighter pilot to being a top end racedriver to saving hostages from terrorists.

I like a really good story and some of the imagery, surroundings, character development (Oh Iishi) can be done really well.
