If playing games is one of your hobbies, it could be because you want to have fun. But playing games is one of the most serious things that you do, so if you are not careful, it can become a habit that you do not want to start.
That’s exactly the situation that’s going on in PlayStation Plus. You have a bunch of games that you have to buy. But you don’t have any way of canceling this habit so you don’t buy any games that you don’t want to buy. And it’s not just you. There are countless others who are also doing the same thing and they’re not sure how to stop them.
If you are reading this then you probably realize that you have a lot of games installed on your PS4 that you want to play. But you dont have any way of canceling this habit.
In fact, you dont even have a way of canceling that habit. You can do what many people do and buy games that you know you wont be playing. It’s called “purchase restrictions.” But the problem is that you have to know that you will be buying game of the month or the best of the best or whatever it is that you’re buying. That puts all of your time, energy, and money into the game that you are buying. That is a bad thing.
My friend Matt has a few games he has bought that he is not playing. He has bought games that he knows he wont be playing that he really only play once or twice because he wont be able to play them again. It is very rare that he plays a game that he is not going to play again. He is a gamer. Its just that he only plays a game to play it once. So that is a bad habit to have.
Yeah, but I would argue that youre still not buying it because youre still not really playing it, either. Youre buying it because you want to be able to play it again.
I can say this because I have an old friend that I used to play with who has a Playstation Plus account. He is the kind of friend who would always ask me to play his games and I would always say “I dont have them” as if that would somehow magically make it so I could play them again. He got so sick of my refusal that he started looking for the games online and asking me to tell him where they were. I never did that.
I’m not saying you need to pay to play because it’s not like you’ll find anything new there. But if you want to play games that were free for a year or two and have them still be free, you’ll have to buy the games themselves, and we’re talking games like the PS Plus ones. The ones that have all the extra features like online saves and online multiplayer.
If you want to play your games online then you can do it with the games you already own. The games you have to pay for are the ones that don’t have any online features. If you want to play games that don’t even have online multiplayer, you will have to pay $10 or so.
For the past few years we’ve been testing out the free PS Plus games that we can play online at games a day, and we find that the games that dont have online multiplayer are the ones that dont have a lot of fun. The ones that are free, we like them because they’re not all about online multiplayer. The ones that have online multiplayer, we like them because they are fun.
