I want to like you. I really do.
I start getting into you – I read your back story and pick up a couple of novels. I start looking at the forums and finding all I can on you. It’s kind of like stalking.
I may even go as far as purchasing something, a source book, a mini, perhaps a map pack.
Then. I play a game. It’s enjoyable. Don’t get me wrong.
But then something happens. Is it a lack of respect? Boredom? Whatever “it” is. “It” inevitably leads me to lose complete interest.
The first time this happened, I put away the novels, perhaps even exchanging them at the used bookstore. I sold/gave away a bunch of my stuff.
However, it’s now the second time this has happened. I stopped reading the novels. I played a game, a couple this time. And I’m done…for now. I had my fill and now I can move on to my regularly scheduled games. This time I won’t sell my stuff. (Lesson learned.)
What is it about this game that does that? I go in full-in. I’m excited to play. This time I even painted a couple minis. The back story and history is rich and fun. There’s just something about it.
Battletech, please understand. It’s not you. It’s me.
