    Depends how good the game is.


    When I played Arcanum for the first time I think I beat it back to back to back 3 times while not playing anything else.


    A year later I got NWN and I think between starting NWN and quitting it roughly halfway through I beat like 4-5 different games.

    A relatable confession. I have been there. If this were 2 years ago, I would have written that same comment verbatim.

    I'm currently a few weeks in to a break up and haven't touched a game but I know a lot of free time is coming so debating what to commit to. I have Pathfinder, Deadfire and DoS2 that I still haven't played so one of those will probably be my next love.

    Most of the time I have multiple games installed that I play but usually they are of different genres to scratch different itches. I have one rpg and maybe some other more "serious" games that take most of my time but I have some other more "light" games usually more action oriented that I can play for a few when I want to just relax.For example right now I have Expeditions:Vikings,Sengoku Jidai gold,Hellblade:Senua's Sacrifice,One Finger Death Punch and Osmos installed.

    I play several games at a time, keeps the burnout away. The only exceptions are games that are so good you don't want to play anything else in first place.

    Look. I've just started Skyrim so of course I will be playing other games.

    Only one game at a time. I can play two games if one of them can be played in short sessions and is not immersive. Two RPGs, impossible.

    For the most part I play several games at once, so I don't get fatigue (because when I do, I pretty much never play that game again). It does have the downside I sometimes get indecisive of what to play, or simply abandon the game for so long that I only to play it again if I for some reason start to miss the experience it provided.
    But if the game is really good and hooks me on, then I can play it for as long as I at least can complete it's main content and get a good understanding of the mechanics and systems (of course even then I will occasionally switch it up a bit so that I don't get tired of playing it).
