The 30-Day Gamer Challenge – Day 25

Super Spike V'ball

A game that makes you want to stop playing video games

Well I have to look at this from a slightly different perspective than one might initially consider, because I don’t know that any games make me want to give up the hobby completely. It’s kinda my job, after all, and I’ve been doing it since I was a wee lad. I love video games, even if I like to take lengthy breaks from them to experience the rest of what the world has to offer.

And that’s how I look at this question: Which game makes me want to drop the controller temporarily and go do other things. Well, most sports games do that quite easily. If I had to pick one, maybe one of my favorites from back in the day, Super Spike V’ball for the NES. I am an admittedly addicted volleyball player, and this is still the best (or at least my personal favorite) volleyball game to date. The only bad part about it is that it makes me want to immediately drop what I’m doing and hit the courts (I live only a couple of blocks from the beach, after all).

So yeah, in a way, one of my favorite games makes me want to stop playing games. Weird.
