An aspect of gaming in general for me is the memories that are made and the experience that is shared! Aeon’s End: Legacy has really highlighted this well for my wife and I. There have been a lot of moments where we thought we were doomed but we ended up having a mega turn and were able to pull out of it. Very satisfying and even more so because you can turn to your partner and give them a high five and have that satisfaction together.
With solo gaming, this is obviously just not there. The shared experience specifically is noticeably absent, BUT I got to thinking about my own solo memories. Have I developed any fond memories of my times playing these games by myself or have I just logged them away in my forgotten memories bank?
I believe that I have developed some good memories from solo gaming, but it mostly based around setting. Playing a solo game at a board game café, I have the house to myself and made myself a good cup of coffee and just immerse myself in the decision space, so on and so forth. Gaia Project has done this the most for me, where I just really cling to my experience and dwell on the decision I made, whether they are poor or excellent.
I am curious if you have had a specific game form these memories or it is more like me where it is more situation driven that forms those longer lasting memories and experiences?
