Please Help...Gaming Interest Being Ruined? - Page 4

post #31 of 39
I get the same sort of feeling. I keep going back to the games I played the most.

The most interesting observation, is that single player RPGs seem to revive my gaming interest. That is why I am hoping that Bethesda will save me in 2 months...

Man, I feel exactly the same, it sucks, but normal. I hope you'll find ur urge to game soon, cuz I've been lost for a long time and am not sure if I'm gonna go back "for real"..

I'm currently in the same boat. It sucks, because I've sunk a lot of money into my rig recently, now I use it for.... email and web surfing. Like others said, do something else for a while just get out. It'll come back and if not, you've got something else.

Strange, usually when I get "new stuff" I get all excited. lol, my gpu died recently and I replaced it with the cheapest one I could get, so I decided I play older games (whatever runs 60fps on highest settings for me) and got actually pretty exicted. Also when I moved my room downstairs I got all "yay" about a bloody avrage title.

Seems that anything that is new (and good) or just good that's going on in your life can get you excited about other stuff. I remmber enjoying my time in elmentry school, because I was thinkin about the food at home or Pokemon which await me..

Didn't read the rest of the topic, just the OP, and here are my two cents:

I know how you feel, and this was my solution to it - I made a list of games that I will beat before the next big sale (Christmas). On this list, I put mostly singleplayer games that really interested me when I bought them, but for whatever reason I never finished. It's been only about a month, but I'm already half way through my list. In addition to getting the satisfaction from beating the game, I also get the satisfaction of knowing that I'm reducing my backlog. Meanwhile, I try not to buy games at all. Hope this helps.

I have a similar problem. Bought a bunch of games from last Steam Christmas sale and have yet to play them half of them. Usually launch it, get to the main menu, then decide I don't want to play anymore. Same issue with anime, I bought a ton of anime yet I don't watch any of it even with all the spare time I have now.

I know what my problem is though. I rather browse forums with my free time instead of playing/watching anything. ;_;
