    What Gets You in the Mood for a Particular Game?

    So sometimes there is something that makes me want to play a particular game.

    For example watching a film that is set in the west makes me feel like playing Red Dead Redemption.

    And It's not always a film that might make you in the mood but when you go somewhere,

    For example when I go to a theme park I want to play Rollercoaster Tycoon

    What about you?

    Boredom/seeing the case is all it really takes for me. If nothing is on TV and I have free time I look at my games until I see one I feel like playing...

    Depends. If i'm feeling angry, I play God of War, Call of Duty, Assassin's Creed...something that gives you awards for being destructive and violent. If i'm feeling humorous, i'll play a game that has a good portion of humor in it, like Jak and Daxter and Sly Cooper. It all depends. If I watch a horror movie(like Aliens) I want to play Dead Space or a Game like that.

    LOL, me too brotha. I was about to say candlelit dinner and a back rub.

    But I guess it's really just word of mouth from most of the people I talk to on here. I have a handful of people I go to (bneck, daft, DRAGON, AAwesome, Timeless, etc.) that I often get their insight from a game they have played or are currently playing. Or sometimes just reading through an article in Game Informer or some website will peak my interest in a game. I dunno, tons of stuff really.

    Depends.
    Mostly just from me thinking it in some way gets me in the mood.

    Maybe I was thinking of a memory for that game, something as old as GTA3 (them peds) that I haven't played in awhile or an awesome moment from a more recent game like the Dead Space intro.

    Maybe I saw a movie somewhat related to the game, an assassins movie.. I'll play some Hitman / AC yes.
    So on & so on.

    Again, it just depends. If the push is enough.

    Seeing my PS3 bend over to pick something up always gets me in the mood

    Getting a new game always gets me excited to game.

    The drive to achieve new things in a game or to progress further is what gets me in the mood. If you come close to ending a game that also.
    Sometimes i just want to chill, so i play some S&D in MW3.....

    Exactly nothing, if I hear there is a new sports game I like and I really want it, I will find trailers, pictures or whatever. If it's a RPG, I will just wait 6 plus months later.

    For me its usually what I'm currently playing. For example I'm almost done Resident Evil 4 which I was only playing because it was sitting at 0% on my list and now that I'm almost done it, I've been wanting to start Resident Evil 5 and go for 100%. I also went ahead and preordered Resident Evil 6 yesterday as well.

    Usually if it's on my mind and if I'm not too lazy to get to the game I'm thinking about. With that, nostalgia is a pretty fair factor as well. That's why the PS2 has been in my room the past three months.

    whenever i see a white sox or cubs game and they win (although the latter hasnt sparked much of this) ill go and play a MLB 2K: and create an exhibition game with the team that won and who they faced, then put both teams to "controlled by CPU" and just watch the game and see what outcome happens, and if its similar or super different.
