This is post #13 for Blaugust 2019

Over at the Dating Sims On The Holodeck, TheRoyalFamily wrote an interesting post about Replaying Games. It is was just an answer to a question from a post from Kim of Later Levels about if people replay a game immediately after finishing it.

Although I'd like to say my answer was like TheRoyalFamily and that I did, indeed, replay a game immediately after finishing it I can't say with 100% conviction that I did and which games.

I can at least say what are my reasons to replay a game though.... which come to think about it might be universal. But who knows, maybe they aren't and maybe there are people with different motivations out there!

They certainly know how to sell a deal....Stellaris is one of those games I kept wanting to give a try but wasn't sure if I would enjoy it.

My fear was that Stellaris would be  the same and for a game like that I just need to be in the right mindset.

Since Steam had a free weekend for Stellaris I decided that this would be the time to find out if it was a game I wanted to play or not. After playing it through most of the weekend I can safely say: yes, I love the game. And yes, I bought it and all the DLCs. 🙂
