If I'm not feeling it by hour two or three I'm done. May try again a second time later, but life's far to short to "force" myself to play something that doesn't work for me.

On the first playthrough I always try to finish the main game. There are a few exceptions to this though, like Skyrim, a game I dropped after finishing the College quest line and the Thieves Guild quest line because I realized that the game does not at any point get better.

If I'm not enjoying something, I drop it and move on. That's not to say I'll drop something if there is a lull for 10 minutes, but if I've been playing a game for hours and I haven't found it enjoyable then I don't have that notion of "might as well finish it" like many seem to. Sunken time fallacy to me.

There are a number of games I'll play mayb 2/3 through and the game has bored me, but I feel like I have to finish it. Those are the ones I FORCE myself to finish. Sometimes I get to point of no return and I don't feel right not finishing it even though I'm not enjoying it anymore.

Current gen games are so awfully bad I have to force myself to START them.

If I'm bored of a game, I'm not going to force myself to be bored for even longer.

Why would I play a game I'm not enjoying? Unless it's clear that the situation I'm not enjoying is just a small part of the game (ie, a stealth stage in a non-stealth game) I'll just drop it, accept that I chose poorly when purchasing the game in question, and move on with my life.
