Do you ever play games frequently that you really don’t want to play? Is it because of your friends? Is it because you feel that you’ll miss something? Maybe it’s because you’ve already dumped so many hours that it will feel like a waste if you stop now. Nick, Mikey, and Jarret have all been there. The first step in fixing a problem is identifying the source. In this special edition we discuss the many reason how you’ll end up sinking countless hours into a game that you don’t even like, and ultimately, how to break up with it.


Jarret Redding

Jarret is Executive Director as well as one of the founding members of Mash Those Buttons. He plays all types of games, but tends to lean more toward FPS, Stealth, and Combat games.

Nick Zielenkievicz

Host of WoW! Talk! and The Tauren & The Goblin. Sometimes known as the Video Games Public Defender. Wants to play more Destiny and Marvel Heroes but WoW is all-consuming. Decent F2P Hearthstone player. Sad that he lost the Wii that had Wrecking Crew on it. Would be happy if the only game ever made was M.U.L.E. Gragtharr on Skywall-US. Garresque on Ravencrest-US.

Mikey Kenney

Mikey has been playing fighting games since he could reach the arcade stick and buttons. While not be ever being tournament ready he strives to do better. Loves pure action games and enjoying bonkers jrpgs. He's just you're average gaymer.
