I’ve played a good number of CoG games and I find the concept very compelling; however, I often have trouble finishing them and when I do I always find myself left with a sense of - how shall I put this? Hollowness? Disappointment? Not from any problem with the games themselves (as far as I can tell) but from a feeling that I somehow haven’t played it the way it was meant to be played, haven’t experienced it to its fullest or gotten the truest version of my character’s story. So I was wondering: how do other people tend to play these games? What sort of mindset do you get into whilst playing, and how do you go about making choices and roleplaying? What are your strategies for getting the most out of a game?
It could be that I’m doing nothing wrong and these games just aren’t for me - which would be a shame, since as I said I find the concept really compelling and I really want to enjoy the experience. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
(P.S. I’m new to the forum; looking forward to engaging more with this community!)
