Hmm... Yeah I do enjoy a good challenge. I usually try to solo the "5 man" elite quests. If i fail then check wowhead for info. If I fail again I'll ask my guildies for help =PBut usually I'm a person who gives up quickly =\\Edit: o.o I'm first?
I love a good challenge so long as it not near impossible.But I also love asking for help and looking up information.2nd hopefully
That has happened to me many times before, usually with THPS (the one secret tape in the Downhill Jam level eluded me for a while). Although, i took a 6 month break from WoW after BC had been out for 2 or 3 months (i quit because i could never find any raids that weren't elitist/successful). I started fresh on a new realm, and have been very successful so far *knocks on wood* with raiding and finding a comfortable play style.Taking a break can be a very good thing =)
I was 7 and spent hours upon hours trying to beat zelda on snes. I never worked that out, loaned the game to a friend and never got it back. If you in future intend on including spoilers inside of your blogs please make sure that they are appropriately labelled.Forever disappointedHoocha
I've taken several vacations from WoW... The most recent ended August 08. I'd stopped playing for a good 15 months or so, due to migraines. Every time I'd log in - even just looking at the logon screen! - I'd end up with a migraine within a few minutes. If I did log in to play, I'd have a pounding headache and soon after that get motion-sickness-like nausea.I've taken a few short breaks since then - a week or two here or there - but I don't expect to "need" as prolonged an absence again for a while.
I don't take vacations because of challanges mysalf, I just bash my head trying to do it until it is done.I can say that it is not like this to other people, my sister have been trying to kill the ninja in MGS for an hour and failed, a day later she came refreshed and killed him on her first try.
I stopped playing WoW for about four or five months b/c I was getting bored do the same things over and over again. Well I picked it back up about a week ago and it's just as fun as when I first started. I am glad that I took a break from it for a while.
i do enjoy a hard challange if its to hard i will stop for bout a month and try and try again untill i break the game or beat it lol
I adore challenges, maybe way too much. Ever since I discovered the "bullet hell" genre of vertical shooters, it almost redefined my look at difficulty. Spending over a month on a single boss fight, over 100 attempts on a single 15 minute battle, where even sneezing can be the death of you, every second requiring your full attention...most other things can seem a lot easier. The great thing about challenges is when you conquer them, well, to be frank, you get bragging rights. Whenever I see someone carrying around Thunderfury or something similar, I don't usually think "He has waaay to much time on his hands" (even when he probably does). When that someone accomplishes a feat that few others can do, I applaud them, because they had the patience and the nerve to make it that far. Let them carry around Thunderfury, they deserved it. That's whats great about challenges. They may frustrate you, maybe even drive you to quit playing, but once you complete it, you almost feel like your on top of the world. Not many things beat that feeling.
Challenges are fun, but I'd still kill you all to get Rivendare's Mount to drop
I enjoy a good challenge, however I just don't have the concentration span or dedication to grind rep for achievements, etc. I'm glad blizzard implemented the achievement system, as it caters to a wide variety of challenging difficulty levels.
I am currently on a Wowcation, taking the time to enjoy other things. Of course, I am still checking Wowhead. It's inevitable that I will start playing again, then I will finally get 80 on my DK. On a note to your comment on how taking a break helps you solve riddles and puzzles, what happens is, especially during sleep, your mind will review the senario and find how it can be done correctly. This also applies to sports, which is why practicing reguarly makes you better. As well as providing muscle memory it also makes your mind review it that during that night's sleep.Also, Darth Vader is Luke's father.
I recently picked up Donkey Kong 64 again, after a loooong break. It surprised me how easy it really was. As a kid, the games puzzles annoyed me to no end. Yet now, they're as easy as soloing VC :DP.S.- Brom is Eragon's father
Donkey Kong 64 was a riddle to me. I felt the entire game was so open I really had no clue where to go next and I would quit for a while. Of course, then I start to play again only to have forgotten where I left off from. That annoyed me to no end, but I absolutely love the DK franchise. Diddy rocks!Also, his power level is over 9000!
SOOOOOOOOOOOO true my mom always tells me to take a break when frustrated and it works!i usually do the task after a small day or week break
