At least, it used to fill me with regret. You see, I realized something that I think all adult gamers need to realize, games are suppose to be fun! This means that if you make progress in the story or just sit on a roof shooting cops until they finally overwhelm you, having fun with the game is all that really matters at the end of the day. Life is too short to turn your hobby into a high pressure job with deadlines and goals to complete. Just play your games in whatever way is fun for you and if you never defeat that final boss, hell if you never make it to the last boss, don't sweat it. The amount of gamers to "defeat" Pac-Man is minuscule compared to the amount that have played the game yet its still fun to run around the maze gobbling up dots. That's my take on it anyways, I'm just an asshole behind a keyboard so really what do I know? As always. feel free to comment, like, share, tweet, or whatever other thing you kids do on your social media these days.
