There are some games that just aren't fun to play. They feel like a grind, and just aren't fun to play.

For me it's the Batman:Arkham series. I love Batman and I appreciate that most people enjoy the series, but I just can't get into them. I played a few hours of asylum and just didn't have much fun(i enjoyed the characters/story) but the game just felt like a grind. I figured I would enjoy City due to the open world setting but the same thing happened. The story was good, and everyone said I should see it through, but for some reason I just wasn't having any fun with it.

Are there any games that you really want to like but they just seem like work, instead of play?

Darksiders. I tried playing the first one but every new area felt like a messy bedroom and each section of it needed something unique done in order to clean it. It really did feel like work.

yeah I love the Arkham games but I know what you mean. I feel that way with every "sandbox" game, even ones I enjoy like RDR

i just started playing arkham asylum and have barely put it down, just took a break now after a few hours of play, what a magnificent game! i started on normal but switched to hard soon after, really ups the intensity.

Assassin's Creed.

I finished it, but I really had to force myself onward.

GTA IV. And for the record, I love open world games and the GTA series overall.

But 94 missions felt like 944 after about 40 or 50. I just wanted it to end.

This. Well, at least for me. I know tons of people enjoy them & that's fine. It's just with the few I played...I'd play 'em for a few hours and never have the urge to come back the 2nd day.
