Continuing Dating Sims/Visual Novels After Not Doing So For A Really Long Time

From the title of this post, you’re probably either relating to it by a long shot or wondering what this is all about. I love dating sims and visual novels which is very apparent since I do reviews/lists on them, but I do have something to confess. I tend to download, play a game for a bit, and then leave it for weeks or months on end—which is rather ironic since I should be finishing countless of them, especially since part of this blog is dedicated to games. You can ask some of my friends—my editor even—since they have seen the countless games on my laptop and phone. However, a lot of the ones in my phone end up getting un-downloaded (if that’s even a word—and no I don’t mean uninstall because the app is still visually available on my phone…) after I don’t use it for a certain period of time and I end up downloading a new app. 

One example of this happening is with “The Arcana.” I downloaded “The Arcana” last year (I think. I lost track of time by now) yet I just now finished my first ever route—which was Julian’s. I actually binged read his route by paying for keys, but I don’t regret it because it was so interesting. Another one (taking an example from my laptop) is Nekojishi. I haven’t quite finished the game—nor have I finished a single route yet, but I did pick it back up after months of not playing it. The game is a gem in its totality and I would definitely recommend it if you like yaoi, are a furry, or both. 

It brings up the question of why can’t I finish a game after downloading it—especially when it has a good story? Which is a good question at that. I actually started to look into it by literally searching on google and apparently there have been quite a few people with the same problem. It could be having too many games on the list of things to play—or not getting enough rest from a certain game after playing it for hours—days even—on end. I would say it’s because I’m too busy with class and work, but I do tend to watch YouTube for hours and hours as a means to procrastinate in any way, shape, or form. So how can I fix this? Well, I might have to stop downloading games like I buy books—buying them, and then end up lying to myself about reading all of them at one point (yes, I’m one of those people.) My editor actually scolded me yesterday and said to choose one game and stick with it until I’m done—being the adult I am, I started to whine and make excuses (I swear I can feel my editor chuckle a bit at that last statement). 

My editor silently laughing at that comment 

With that being said, I want to know if you guys have any unfinished game(s) and why you haven’t finished them (it doesn’t necessarily have to be games—it can literally be anything from anime, books, etc.) I would love to hear what you guys have to say on this. That’s all for today. Until next time, keep your paws and bowls of ramen up, everyone! Nya! 🐾
