Problems in video games. Again.:
- I do not set myself any objectives beyond "win". This ultimately leaves me extremely unfulfilled because "win" is usually an objective that can only be attained after weeks, maybe months of practice; it's the endpoint of a very long journey. (i.e. in an arcade game, it's "beat the game, and don't continue") Ultimately, this lack of fulfillment also kills my focus, which brings me to:
- I have a generalized focusing problem. It's not just in video games; it's in everything I do. However, it's less pronounced in video games as while playing them my mind doesn't usually drift away from the task in question, but I still don't feel fully concentrated in what I'm doing. This lack of focus kills my motiation because I end up unfulfilled, as per the first item.
- In games that don't have clear-cut progress objectives (i.e. a fighting game's multiplayer component, in my case, Touhou Hisoutensoku's netplay), how can I establish myself smaller objectives to serve as stepping stones to a major goal? This is not just for this game, it's for any game.
- Are there any techniques I can do to improve my focus?
