I post musings, images and nonsense on Tumblr! I play games on Steam! Add me on either/both, and don't hesitate to ask if you want to play something with me!

I take them slowly most of the time too, though there's usually several factors into that.

I mostly play long-lived games, like Morrowind, Oblivion, Skyrim, Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas... all of which are long in their own right and even longer with the dedicated mod support.

Then there's other games whose length is justified by the difficulty, like certain shooters whose higher difficulties mean you take forever and a half with them.

Rising summed it up quite well; it depends on the game.

While I'd be glad to take an ultra-hard FPS game like Perfect Dark slowly, there are certain games such as SP MM8BDM that I just feel the need to speedrun.

These days I tend to have gaming ADD. I play abit of a game for abit and switch to another for a week or so. Consequently, I play through games slowly.

It's not unusual that I play games like Necro does.
It's not unusual to have fun, with anyone.

I used to go pretty fast, at least through the storyline bits of RPGs (and all of Pokemon), but nowadays I go pretty slowly with them. I usually have multiple games that I am halfway through. With a rare few, I get stuck (hello Darksiders II!), so there's little to do about that.

Haven't gotten more than halfway through Pokemon Black before stopping at the time.

This honestly depends entirely on the genre I'm playing. For example, I actually listen to the cutscenes in say, Arkham City or Dishonored now. However, there will always games like GTA IV where I just run through as fast as possible, cutscenes be damned.

Basically, it's a question of "How much will I give a damn about this story?"
