Great Games: Do you blast through them? Or do you play them in moderation?

When you buy a game that you know is going to be good, do you play through it quickly, and finish it a day? Or do you try to take your time, and play it in moderation?

Blast through them till about the half way point and then I typically quit....LOL! But eventually I get back to them and finish 'blasting' the rest of the way through them.

Um...I don't fit any of the poll choices.

Slowly/Moderate. I love to take my time and pay attention to every detail; yet I can't put a time-frame the the amount of time I spend per session. It can be short spurts and/or longer periods of time. I love to enjoy every bit of the game to stay engaged.

Certain games such as Edge, Dark Nebula, Beat It, Zenbound, Broken Sword are so unique or have such a pervasive style that I have to put them down and play in moderation - more like an hour every few weeks instead of an hour a day. I don't want those and several others to end. Certain other types of games (e.g. Shmups, platformer, simple physics puzzlers, games like geodefense, or rhythm games) I'll blast right through, almost to get them out of my system. So it depends.

A "great game" is whatever you would consider a great game.

I usually try to play them in moderation, but end up blasting through them in a few days.

Moderation, depends what game it is really though. Most games I'll play in moderation but if it's a really fun, exciting game, I'll blast through it.

In response to my own poll, I play most games in moderation, and some games I play slowly like Grand Theft Auto. I think I've only completed about 10 missions. No rush.
