This weapon is basically Viagra for gun enthusiasts
Looking back, this is a pattern well-reflected in my more recent gaming habits. If I had a boring day at work, I'd fill my nights with round after round of playing Ryu versus any comer or matches of Domination. If I had a hectic day at work driving a forklift, I'd come home wanting to figure out the best way to climb a block tower or figure out the best skills and party members to use to get through the enemies in a certain dungeon.
I suppose it makes a certain amount of sense. Spending a day dodging idiot co-workers who don't understand that walking out of the lunchroom or bathroom into the forklift lane without looking is a stupid, stupid idea relies on a certain amount of reflexes for said idiot co-workers to avoid spending time in traction, so whiling away the subsequent night relying on those same tired reflexes might not be the most appealing thing for me. On the flipside of that, spending all day looking at pages and pages of quantities and weights and figuring out how to move them might not make studying the status screen in an RPG as much fun as I'd normally find it.
Regardless of what manner of work my job has inflicted on me to make me tired, it's nice to know there's always a relaxing game suited precisely for my day waiting for me when I get home. God knows there's going to be enough variety in the coming avalanche of games to fill any gamer's need for variety.
