    Such a cool boomer. You could easily think he's 15 years younger than that.

    My wife's father would probably be the same way if he was still with us.
    My big thing for a while was just driving around in GTA V. Loved the feel of driving at night in that game.

    A lot of boomers love watching those old western movies over and over. This one figured out he could be in the western movie and do whatever he wants in it. Pretty based tbh

      I gave my boomer dad all the movies and shows he could ever want for free, even showed him how to access more, but when ME TV (boomer channel) came out he just switched to watching that, commercials and all.

      Yes I'm a little bothered.

        I watched that a bit with my wife and her mother some. I liked the horror shows that did at night, and that was about it.
        I can't stand broadcast television. At all. I refuse to watch any of it.
        Now I have a Dune 4K and it has a Youtube app that won't even allow me to watch youtube advertisements. For a while it was so aggressive it would skip over all in video promotions too.

        I have a boomer dad as well and it's fricking wild. My parents switched from cable to streaming since it was much cheaper. And now, he doesn't even using the add free apps to watch his shows. He watches "clips" of those shows on youtube on the tv, and he doesn't skip the ads either. He'll let them fully play. While still paying for the steaming apps he doesn't use. I don't get it, it's like boomers have to consume commercials.

          It's like they don't objectively assess when something is better, only whether or not it's official. Probably because its their kids trying to them something, so they don't consider it as "real".

            Boomers are really weird about brand names. They will absolutely refuse to buy anything that isn't made by a giant international corporation because "small businesses/independent alternatives are overpriced/scams/don't know what you're getting". You try and explain freeware or open-source to them and they shut down completely. It's such an alien concept to them.

        Having access to everything is overwhelming and it's a pain in the ass to choose something every time you want to watch something. Sometimes it's better to just watch what's on. I never use youtube unless someone sends me a video because I have no idea what to search for to get a vid id enjoy

        My parents have Netflix, but every single night they'll just watch the same British comedy show that only had like 48 episodes produced. It's been years. They see the same episodes at least 6 times a year.
        I think people just get set in their ways.

    Depends on the game. I got sick of BG3 last year after 50 hours and had just reached Baldur's Gate. I'm going back to it now.
    I started Diablo 4 a few days ago but I don't think I'll play much more, it feels like a soulless grindfest. If the game is shit I won't finish it even if I sunk a ton of hours in it.

    I generally have one story game going at a time, OSRS in the background, and then a multiplayer game me and my buddies play once or twice a week (PUBG rn) and then also play Stardew whenever nothing else sounds fun.

    As for the boomer behavior, my mom has thousands of hours in plants vs zombies on her old shitty laptop. Doesn't play it as much now but I still see it open sometimes when I come home.

    Lately I've been cycling through different games. Last game that held my undivided attention was BG3. Honestly, I don't finish most games. I'd rather replay something I like than push through something new just for the sake of finishing it.

    Most of the time I rotate between 1 newer game (doesn't have to be brand new, just current gen or one/two gens older) and 1 older game (mostly PS1-PS2 era) that I play on an emulator. But sometimes I get completely stuck on 1 of them if it really engrossed me.

    A game at a time.
    >Do you finish everything or drop games often?
    I always finish what I started, unless the game is really bad (or simply not for me), in that case I drop it in less than an hour of gameplay.
    Last year I dropped Space Hulk: Deathwing, Blasphemous, Vikings: Wolves of Midgard, Ghost of a Tale, Left Alive, Ice Age: Scrat's Nutty Adventure and Crysis Remastered.

    At least he's playing an actual game. My deceased uncle was obsessed with facebook slot machine games. Not even candy crush or some other well-known named shit. Just random ass generic slots.
    They made him happy, but I can't even pretend to understand how or why. I wish he'd gotten obsessed with sports management games or something at least.

    I take turns between two SP games (I paly one on one day and the other the next day). I also play some MP games with others a few times a week. A few years ago I was always playing just one SP game until I finished it but it got unbearable when I went through hundred hours long games, especially when Is tarted playing Yakuza games. Now I usually pick a long game for one of my SP titles and a short games for the other.

    I have an absurdly high rate of dropping games at the 75-80% mark.
    I don't know why, but it's so rare that I actually finish a game beyond that point despite the ridiculous number of games in which I've gotten to that point.

    I like games with lots of content and replayability. Completely dominating games and beating it on the highest difficulty that I can handle is more fun than just rushing to the next game. There is a lot of really good post game content that most people miss because they don't have the patience to at least attempt to 100%.

    I always have 1 main game and 1 to 3 side ones (that are usually puzzle, card, or roguelike - something easy to pick up and put down, essentially).

    Right now I'm playing Crymachina as the main game with YGO WCT 2005 as the sole side (though I haven't picked up the main in a couple days due to real life stuff limiting time which has actually caused me to nearly finish the side game first with only 11 cards left to collect and the tourneys all done).

    And I finish most of what I buy because I'm not a moron who lets companies brainwash him with muh spoiler nonsense meaning I look enough up prior to purchase to know whether or not I should actually like it.

    Whether or not I finish it in the rare case I don't like it depends upon length and how much I enjoy the parts that aren't bad. The main game prior to the current one, for example was The Cruel King and the Great Hero. It was short enough and the good parts were good enough that I finished it despite it's many nuisances but I would not suggest it to anyone else unless they like having their time greatly wasted by a JRPG missing almost every QoL feature to have ever existed in games that do any of what it does.

    I rarely drop games but that's mainly because I enjoy most games that I play. I know what I like.
    The only game in recent memory that broke me was Invisible War. Took a break after 9 hours and ended up finishing skyrim for the first time in a 100 hour playthrough... then I did Graven... and Sprawl... and Jedi Outcast... and the idea of finishing Invisible War seemed like a chore. Dog ass game.

    I can't really play multiple games at once. It's either I beat a single game and move on, or I just get tired of it and try something new.
    Honestly, I rarely drop any games since there are always something that I can enjoy. The only redflag for me is survival crafting mechanic as the main gameplay. That shit bores me to death even if it isn't tedious.

    Used to focus on a singular game, now can cycle through 2 or 3 at the same time, though still focus on a particular one if it's that good. I rarely drop games, I actually try to squeeze as much value from them as I can, sometimes having the "gamer paralysis" where I'm satisfied with the game and want to move on, but at the same time there is still bonus content or challenges left that would increase the price:time ratio (even if it's already pretty good), so I end up not gaming for a few days until I decide what if I move on or not. Whenever I drop games, it's pretty early on, rather than mid-way through.

    I'll randomly hyper fixate on one game and exclusively play it until I've either 100%'d it, or I somehow get burnt out first (that usually only happens if it's basically endless, like an MMO).
    Since we're all talking about gamer parents though:

    >dad was a big gamer, in the 360 era he played GTA IV every day, but since then he hasn't touched a single game in the ~15 years
    >mum loved to play co-op arcade games with me and my sister, like Crash Bash, Bubble Bobble, and some SNES/N64 Shmup I've never been able to find again, no vidya in the 20 years since, except Candy Crush (she's like 12,000 levels deep)
    They grew up, I don't know when / if I will.
