The Inevitable End - Should I keep playing?

Recommended Posts

It's something that happens to me in virtually every RPG I play. When the end is in sight, when development of my character ceases... I lose interest. It happens with all the Avernum games I've beaten, it happened with Geneforge 1 (albeit the design of that game made development a little uninteresting quite early on)- but with Avernum 1-3 I've pushed on and beaten all 3.

 

I think it hit me in Nethergate much earlier than in A1-3. Probably because the possibility of character growth through training was much greater- but there was so little payoff (there's like NO MONEY in this game! 75%+ of possible training will not be used with a full party, it's painful).

 

It's gotten to the point where I'm not paying any attention to the loose ends that I haven't fully explored, I'm not bothering to loot many things, I'm barely paying attention.

 

Getting to the end of a game is rough for me.

 

I'm not sure if I should just stop and maybe come back and beat it later. I don't know if it's worth sticking through it at this rate.

Are you grabbing gear left by dead monsters and selling it? Tedious but it does raise money.

I enjoyed the ending, I think it is worth experiencing.

Most spells can be obtained for free if you're patient, but it's probably too late for that now.

 

And yes, you'll be missing out if you don't see the ending. If nothing else, there's one uber-powerful item you haven't seen yet.
