Last week I posted a journal entry stating I believed nothing was unforgivable.  Well, there's a reason for that, which should shed some light on a few other things.

I'm afraid of permanence.

If a significant decision is irrevocable, I will hesitate as much as possible to make it.  I'm always afraid I'll make the wrong choice and regret it for the rest of my life.  I can't let go easily.

Today I stumbled upon a review for a computer game called "OneShot".  I won't share the details, but part of its appeal is that if you lose the game, or even quit outside of a save point, it's over and you can't ever play it again (unless you delete the save data or something).  The game unnerved me as soon as I read that, and I couldn't bear to click the download link.

That might explain a few things about me.  Perhaps there's still something else behind it.  I'd like to know as much about myself as possible.

Hmm... this appears to be where you and I differ, Interface. While you would struggle with a tough decision, I have often jumped the gun and made hasty decisions.

On another note, I have heard of a game on TvTropes which leaves you unable to play it again if you get a game over, is it by any chance, OneShot?

Hard to say.  There's more than one.

It's one of the reasons why I'm reluctant to share my experiences, since I question how relevant and reliable my pointers are. The last thing I wish to do is send you down the same path and end up a bitter old man like me.

As for the game I found on TvTropes. This one is brutal if you get a game over, not only does it prevent you from getting a second chance, but regardless of what you do, it locks you out and all you get is a game over screen.

As I typed earlier, hasty decisions. Now, I just press for as much information as I can before making my decision.

There's nothing wrong with that, I suppose.

It helps to make some of the choices easier. But there are some cases where the information provided is limited and may not be sufficient and in some situations they may not give you a lot of time to make the decision.

the concept of the game with no quitting or its insta game over intrigues me.

I'd be too nervous about it.

I would be to but that'd be also the driving force not to quit.

In terms of holding on for a long time, quite possible, but if in terms of hesitating, then no.
