A game that is “good” doesn’t mean it won’t eventually make you want to bash your head into a wall. Adam Harshberger (founder of Pixels or Death) chronicles his failed attempts to find a satiating videogame.
I’m level 14 on Guild Wars 2 and I think it’s a great game. But I can see every inch of the leveling curve in front of me – not just the time investment but the way that time would be spent – and it isn’t anything that interests me at all. But I know it’s good in the same way I know something like Mozart is good. To respect something critically isn’t the same as to give a shit about it.
