It really makes the story more realistic. Will a gunman give you ten minutes to decide whether to run or attack?
I feel that as well you really need to focus. of course I won’t add them if you’re dressing up or something but more in video games you will play or when you need to think fast to escape from something
I like em yeah.
It’s more suspenseful…idk lol
I just like it.

As long as they’re implemented well, I think they’re great. It makes sure that the reader is paying attention.
what exactly do you mean with implemented well?like they are not over used?
Accidently clicked ‘No’ but I love them, it adds realism to the story and also makes you feel like you’re a part of the story in a sense
Correct me if I’m wrong, I believe “The Kiss List” had one. It was used as a minigame in order to improve a relationship with a character. This keeps the reader “on their toes” and engaged.
If the timed choice has no meaning in the story, then it’s pointless in being there.
WEll I will be adding them for example if you need to make a life or death choice (like in thrillers) or inside of a game play (something you could see from the pic I posted) but like I said they won’t be used for clothing/improving relation ships with other characters
That sounds like a good idea.
I like them. I think it adds something to the story and makes it feel like more of a game instead of a choose your own adventure book. The real you wouldn’t have all the time in the world to decide between ducking or running, you know?
As long as they’re used for sensible reasons (e.g. choosing a way for a character to escape from danger), I have no issues with them.
No I can’t stand them! Just stop with the extraness lol I have add and it’s hard for me to pay attention to every single thing and some authors can be so unreasonable with choices.
No, but not because I dislike the concept. It just really bothers me that, if you do not make a choice within the time given, the last option is the default one. I would love them if they had a random consequence. In a way, then, it would be like the author making a choice for you.
I always make the choice in time, though, so I am speaking as an author here. I would hate to make a choice on the reader’s behalf… and I would hate it even more if that gave them an easy way out of a problem. Some readers are just cowards when they are under pressure
It reminds me of a game called surviving high school, im in the middle on this choice
What story is that from?
Sometimes I hate it but I like em.
I love them. They add suspense and make the choices more interesting.
