Reader Discussion: Do You Mind Playing Big Games Back To Back?

by Kyle Hilliard on Apr 18, 2017 at 05:00 PM

In the last few weeks we have seen the release of a number of huge games all at once. Are you playing them in succession? Or taking breaks?

Horizon: Zero Dawn, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mass Effect: Andromeda, and Persona 5 are all great, each requires substantial time to play, and all came out around the same time. Joe Juba heroically reviewed Nier: Automata (another good, but long game), Mass Effect: Andromeda, and Persona 5 all in a row, so when it came time to dive into The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, he decided he needed a break with a shorter game first, and started playing Night in the Woods. It makes perfect sense to me, but does it make sense to you?

Would you rather always be playing the biggest and the best? Or do you relish the occasional break? Let us know in the comments.
