I'm probably the only person who actually read one of those Choose Your Own Adventure books, from cover to cover, in linear succession, rather than make a decision based on the choices presented on the bottom of the page. I was frustrated because I could never find the string which lead to one of the story lines that was my favorite. I just assumed it was one of those extras for anyone who read the book the wrong way, like a backdoor into a unwritten sequel that would never see the light of day. Of course, there is also the possibility that I'm meeting your need to feel important with mischief. As such, the obsessive compulsive nature the Choose Your Own Adventure series, and similar round robin tree stories the internet encourages, will no doubt keep you occupied for days.

@GabrielsThoughts: obsessive compulsive nature like marking every page with a decision so you can finish a storyline, go back to an interesting opportunity or just anything you haven't tried yet so there is no way you'll miss any of the opportunities even if you end up being eaten by cannibals or poison yourself by eating purple berries?

@AliceAcid:

Do you really need to read every storyline and question every decision made?

I've encountered a number of round robinesque things that don't end well no matter which direction you choose.

Why should you only have to suffer with a limited number of possibilities or options when you can invent your own?

There are really only two decisions anyone needs to concern themselves with: take action or do nothing.

A precise step by step process is only important when you're cutting corners or taking a shortcut.

If you ask me it's entirely possible the "Choose your Own Adventure" market, while educational and informative, was made to either limit creativity or break convention.
