This game gets repetitive. Right? Of course it does. Once you git gud enough to escape once it gets repetitive. Game grows stale, put down game and play different game. But you don't. You keep doing it until you get the true ending. And then you keep doing it until you unlock all the aspects and experiment with every boon and Daedalus buff. And then you keep doing it because you want to max out everyone's affection and deck out the House with fun furniture that angers your dad, and maybe even date someone, or play the lyre, or achieve more pointless Ranks, or do increasingly absurd challenge runs, or maybe you've just become so accustomed to the small dopamine hits granted by this game's satisfying combat system that you just. Can't. Stop.
Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever be done playing Hades.
