This past year I received a game for the PS3 from my wonderful wife. That game was Uncharted 2. I was very excited about this gift because it was on my list of games that I really, really wanted. My wife is very attentive to these types of things.
I hopped right into the game. I whizzed through the first chapter in pretty short order. The story in this game is amazing. It’s so rich. The graphics are what you would expect. Awesome. However, the game play in this game is not what I consider a true first person shooter. Which is what I thought it was going to be. The game is more on the lines of a first person puzzle game. I know this is not news to anybody who has played the game.
Here is the struggle. I get easily deterred when I have to play a single level about 20 times to figure out the “trick” to solving the puzzle. So what happens? I end up just going to You Tube and watching walk throughs to get past the tough parts. Then I feel guilty or just plain stupid.
What a silly thing for me to frustrate myself over. Ugh.

I feel ya, man. I get very discouraged in games that I have to replay levels like that.
It doesn’t help that I’m terrible at video games to begin with. I didn’t really grow up with them (my parents wouldn’t buy a console until my brother, who is five years younger than me, was in his preteens), so I didn’t develop video game skills. And if I’m not really into the game, I feel like I’m wasting time, so I don’t get the practice in to play anything well.
So, yeah. It’s frustrating and it happens to a lot of people. I’m right there with you.
