What are the games you thought you would like but when you got them you bounced off?
I was a huge JRPG game player in my teens, yet now in my 40's I avoid games like Final Fantasy. I loved Civilization and Alpha Centauri and attribute Civ 3 as the reason my undergrad GPA was so low. I can still play Civ 5 and 6, but have no time for Beyond Earth. I played hundreds of hours of Master of Orion 2, but can't seem to get into Galactic Civilization 3 or Stellaris. The biggest surprise to me is when I could not get into BioShock, Skyrim, or Pillars of Eternity when I loved Halo, Fallout, and Baldur's Gate.
The thing is all the games I bounced off from seem to be games I liked before. I waited for Beyond Earth to go on sale and then I only played 5 hours. I have installed Bioshock 4 times and every time I only make it though
2-3 levels. I still don't know "will you please kindly" means. For whatever reason my likes changed and I was shocked when this happens. What about you?
