Why do you keep playing DBD?
For some reason, I randomly wondered today why I keep playing this game (even though I do take breaks).
And I realized, DBD is basically just "Tag." Sure, it's cloaked in horror and violence, but it is "Tag" nonetheless. One person is "it" (the Killer) and everyone else is trying to avoid being "it" or "out" (Killed) (depends on how you played Tag growing up). What makes me like to play is, I like the chase. I like seeing how long I can last before someone "catches" me or gives up. The "fear" factor wore off a long time ago for me, too. So really, it's just a grown up, computerized version of "Tag."
So if there's another game out there that does "Tag" better than DBD, then maybe people like me will lose interest in this one and stop returning to it. I dunno . . .
What about you guys? Why do you keep playing?
