Just chilling these days.
I have tried many times to get the Gold Hammer achievement in 0 Day Attack on Earth over the last week. I usually end up losing a life in Paris Day 5. That is quite annoying, but I am still having fun, so that’s something at least.
I think I am going to pick a random game in my collection and do a completely blind and walkthrough free playthrough of it. After the long and epic grind that was completing all of the achievements in Black Desert, I think I feel like a divorce from achievement hunting. When that fishing achievement finally unlocked, it felt like a hollow victory and totally not worth the countless hours I poured into it. I am already 41, I have a finite number of years left in my life, I do not want to spend much more time of it grinding away on achievements like that.
So, I will pick a couple of games to work on and turn the achievement notifications off while I am playing them. I want to reignite the joy of gaming I had when I first picked up the original PlayStation console 24 years ago. It is possible with the right games, and I think we all know Black Desert was not the right game for me for that.
