Not all games can become exciting or addicting from the start. Sometimes you gotta stick with them for just a little bit before the action to begin. For example it took me a while to get into Street Fighter because i had to learn how to perform a Hadouken or a better Example is the Elder Scrolls series I knew I had to stick with it just to get to the fun stuff.

Have you ever had these experiences?

It took me a very long time to get into New Vegas, but once I sat down and played for hours it was a really fun game.

Dark Souls requires an investment on your behalf, which is why 80% of people quit.

All Finaly Fantasy games, It only starts to get good when you hit level 80!

No but seriously, one game that this was a case with was shockingly LoZ: Ocarina of Time. I got bored at first cause all i was doing was doing menial chores, and being stlaked by the ever annoying Navi. But when i finally got past all that i could see why its called one of the best games of all time.

My experience with the original Deus Ex was like that. The game is very slow to begin with but the more you play the more you learn about the story and intriguing it gets. You also unlock sweet upgrades as you progress which is always nice.

Earthbound for me.

I was pretty sceptical about the game up to Happy Happy Village or so. The game just seemed too random to me and perhaps a bit outdated. However, as I progressed through it I started enjoying it more and more and now it's one of my favourite games of all time.

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask takes some time to get into, mainly because you're in that Deku Scrub form. It helps the first time around because you're exploring, but upon repeated gameplay it just becomes slow.

Chrono Trigger also takes a while to get into, but the plus side to this is for the first part of the game, you're at a fair so there is a lot of fun things for you to do and NPC dialogue which is actually... INTERESTING?

Parasite Eve takes A LONG TIME to get into. However if you can appreciate the story and the combat then you're good to go. Still it is a bit more realistic than other video games, some would say that this is one of its downfalls while others will praise it for this.

All Pokemon Games and I mean all of them! Even the spin-off games take some time to get into. It is one thing that I liked the original Pokemon Gold and Crystal over Pokemon HeartGold. HeartGold just wastes your fucking time. I know that a tutorial needs to be given, but damn does this take up way more time than it used to.

Oh, and Borderlands. It was okay-ish at first, but the lack of a story and varied gameplay put me off for a while. After getting used to it, though, I just got sucked in.

I would have to say Dragon's Dogma took me a while to get into. I remember getting it from a friend and I spent about an hour playing it before I just threw it on my shelf for a month, but once you get passed the little things (lip sync issues and dificulty) it becomes rather enjoyable and that's why it's my favorite RPG of the year.

Final Fantasy Tactics is easily a great example of this, and so is BlazBlue. When I first got BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, I immediately went to challenge mode to learn how to perform combos. I started with one of my favorite characters, Tsubaki Yayoi, until eventually, I got so good at the game, I played Makoto, and she takes a lot of patience to master.

Took me ages to get into Dead Space, to be honest. The same can be said for pretty much any scary game I happen to play, but that is just me.

When I was a kid, I had Mario Golf and hated it because I thought it was boring. Now, I can play a few rounds of it on my N64 and enjoy it. I guess I just turned into a boring enough adult to appreciate the finer nuances of the game.

I'll second this game, although I still don't think that I really got all that into it. I was playing at a time when I just wanted to rush through it though, which never helps. I think I was still pretty wore out from all the hours I invested in Fallout 3.

Assassins Creed required me to try playing it several times before I finally decided to play it the whole way through. I don't know what it was about that game. I think there was a point where I felt like it was lacking direction and was never too sure where to go, but then on the last playthrough I attempted I didn't have that problem and played through the entire thing.

The main problem I had with that game is that within the first couple of hours it immediately fires like five different villains, several different factions, several allies and several other important characters at you who are all connected somehow and you're supposed to remember it all.

The plot is good overall, but the start is really confusing and I think that's what makes it hard to get into.

The Final Fantasy Series takes some time to finish
Then theres Valkyrie Profile 2... very rare to find in store though
Then the Kingdom Hearts Series

Mostly any game by Square Enix takes some time to beat the whole game... and even if you beat the game, theres always extra stuff to worry about, like optional boss battles and special events to trigger

Dragon Age: Origins is this for me, first everything felt like a chore and I wasn't really having fun. But later I really got immersed into the story and I'm glad that I gave it a chance.

Super Mario Sunshine takes a while to get into, since it has one of the longest openings to any game I have ever played. Plus, the story is unskippable, so if you want to start a new game, you can't skip the cutscenes. That to me is the most annoying part.

Torchlight, then I got into it, but not for that long.
