You misunderstand my point, the player has no decision whatsoever in the "pressing on", its automated. For instance, I liked battling that boss, it was fun. I cannot go back and fight that boss battle 5 times because I liked it, the game auto saves me a checkpoint as soon as it's over. I think I could have done that entire section without getting hit, or i can do it without using any healthpacks. I end up playing a game until I'm satisfied with my experience, I'm not just heading hellbent to the end.

I guess I'm OCD in that way, but I find myself grinding extra hours out of a game far more doing that than not making the proverbial jump across the final chasm and being forced to replay an entire section.

so yeah, i end up breezing thru games like OVerlord because of systems like that, instead of savoring the thing and extending my gameplay im forced to carry on.

I dont dislike people - I just like them better when theyre not around
