This may be way outside the realms of Stateliness, but I thought I'd mention my current addiction (though how long it lasts remains to be seen).
I really want to like fighting games. I love the idea of mastering a character and playing the behind-the-scene mind games that the genre involves. The problem is that I suck. Really bad. I went online with Street Fighter years ago and was made to look foolish repeatedly.
I've never tried a fighting game on iOS because I just assumed that the controls would be garbage. Well, based on an aside in an article I was reading I picked up Skullgirls (a game I had tried on my PS4 and - shockingly - sucked at). Skullgirls is a free-to-play game with all the trappings you would expect - timers, multiple currencies, blind purchases, etc. That alone should have been enough for me to delete it and probably scold my phone for even allowing me to install it in the first place. However, the game is gorgeous (it uses 2D models that are bonkers), the controls work surprisingly well, and there is a bit of RPG to the game as you play though a weak story mode and level up your skills and stats. I don't know if you can battle online, but I haven't tried.
I don't want to make it sound like this game is the second coming, but if you, like me, are interested at all in the fighting genre, Skullgirls has actually been a pleasant surprise for me in spite of its pay model.
