... who only plays one game...?
I would say definitely not these days. As more games opt for the "live service" (I always say that in Jim Sterling's voice) model it means games can turn into a full-time job and you'll get left behind if you don't focus on just one.
I tend to play a lot of games at the same time, but always have my staple solo game (Destiny has been it for the longest time now) and a game I play on stream with friends (Borderlands 2 at the moment) and maybe a very casual game I can play when not really 'playing' (Pokémon Go and Wizards Unite when out for walks). Then there's my 'woke-up-at-02:00-with-crazy-anxiety-am-I-dying-must-calm-down' games like Stardew Valley and puzzle games. The Switch has been a godsend for that!
Past few years i've revolved around Skyrim and FO4 both modded to high heaven. Other games have popped in there like TW3 and so on then i have a break, as now, and work through some PS4 titles.
I prefer to play the living hell out of one game at a time.
Rocket league. Only game I've played in 2 years. Every night for an hour.
No not really. I only really play three games solidly and that hasn't changed much.
Borderlands 2 co op
Dead Island and definitive co op.
I do tinker with other games but not much. I belong as a lone wanderer mostly, but do have a besty I co op with.
Games like LoL, Dota 2, Overwatch, WoW, Starcraft 2, CS Go, TF2, Warframe, Pubg, Rocket League or Minecraft have millions of users between them who play mostly just one game, so no you are nowhere near the only one.
So don't worry: us "other" gamers won't judge you for playing mostly one game, it is perfectly normal.
I do the exact same thing.
I'd never have a go at someone playing one game, hell playing Skyrim off and on for umpteen years means i have no room to talk.
Whatever scratches that itch.
I've built entire pcs for one game tbh.
I still am...
I'm struggling to find something that truly captures my interest, other than War Thunder.
I have sunk months into the game and it's just far too easy to pick it up, play a round or two and then that's my gaming for a day.
Same game or same habit? If same game, what's your rank? We could do doubles sometime.
Half Life online
Bored shitless with all of them.
BF1 for 2 years and hardly touched anything else.
Mostly playing FH4 now with an occasional BF1 game.
Aldus FreeHand 3.0 files...? <searches> Oh! Forza Horizon 4!
Yeh sorry to used to googling FH4 when I'm stuck doing a challenge lol
I must have been playing DoW2 multiplayer for over 10 years now. Other games distract me but I always go back.
Football Manager fans know this feeling. Many become addicts, to the detriment of their career, marriage and exams. Or they just play it every day out of habit, constantly trying new saves/careers and wondering why it isn't as fun. They get stuck in a rut.
I play FM too but I'm just playing FM 07 one last time. I've loaded every single league, country and player and am up to year 2029. Eventually the game will be unable to save (around 2100). After that... time for something different... FA Premier League Football Manager 99!
But I still play other stuff. In the era of the backlog, it's a blessing that now we can only play the very best games. The days of buying games that 'look a bit interesting' and ploughing through games that have got tedious or stringing it out with boring side stuff are long over.
Depends what you mean by one game. I only play one MMO. But for other games I have my go-toos. They are usually old to old-ish games. Modern games seem to lack something...fun I think it's called. Some developers I have given up entierly. Ubisoft for example. They aint released a decent game since the PS2 era. And don't say Ass Creed XYZ..that is busy work coupled to a lame horse. Actually most AAA games are total w**k filled s**t-shows these days. The shitter they get the more lootboxs they have, and the more lootboxes they have the shitter they get. Industry needs to crash and burn so it can rise again. But those lootboxes make billions, so I play less and less.
One game across all known platforms...
