Ever have a game take you forever to get and then when you got it, you were like, "meh"?

I had The Simpsons Game back when it came out and beat it and sold it. Then about a year ago I wanted to play it again/add it to my collection but it took me forever to get it because I wanted to pay a specific amount and I kept getting outbid by like 50 cents to a dollar. Finally got a copy, played a few missions and it's been on my shelf for a couple months lol.

That's the thing. I obsessed over getting it again. I bid on auction after auction after auction and then when I finally got it, it was just like meh. I don't know why. It's really annoying when that happens.

Could be that you've built it up in your mind to be better than it is. Your own expectations letting you down.

Or it could be you feel empty in your life and you think something will make you happy and then you're happy for a moment and then realize that the object doesn't fill the void.

Definitely not that I fill empty in life. I think it was more so I wanted it in my collection. Felt bad for selling a game that I liked. I went through the same thing with MotorStorm, Full Auto 2 and Tony Hawk Project 8. Those were the first 3 PS3 games I had. When I rebought them all years later, I played them once and they went on the shelf. I mean I'm happy to have em in the collection but I don't think I wanted them so much to play, but rather to just have.

Yeah the fact that I beat it before took a lot of the fun away. I was expecting to not remember as much of it as I did. I still knew where everything was and how to beat every scene and whatnot.
