Does anyone else prefer games you DON'T control an avatar?

Post by pokalsing »

There are games where you control a character/avatar, like Elden Ring, League of Legends, Counter Strike, GTA, Valorant, Fallout etc.

There are other games you only influence the "game state", but you don't control an avatar, like card games (Hearthstone, LoR, Slay the Spire), strategy games (TFT, Civ, Factorio) and even board games.

Lately, I have noticed I can only enjoy this second type of games and I feel weird about it, because most games are character/avatar based. I usually feel "uninterested" in the game mechanics and story if I have to be someone else (an avatar) and not me.

Does anyone else feel the same?
