I don't find games fun anymore :C - Page 11

post #101 of 111
I did, until I had to take a break for 3 years to finish college. Graduated and built myself a computer this summer, its all back. I play MMOs mostly though for the obvious social aspect. So WoW back then and Rift now, enjoying rift now immensely, and when the internet is down I have a bunch of games on steam ive really been enjoying.

Take a break for a while, and come back to gaming in a few years. You'll be surpised how the fun returns. You're just burned out!

You're not the only one.

They still make hard games but they have become niche markets. If you play shmups like Ikaruga or side scrollers like Contra, those are still very challenging. It seems new games are designed with the mindset that gamers will quit after dying once or twice or whenever they face a challenge.

Making hard games is not profitable. That is why all the new shooters have regenerating health and iron sights. Apparently gamers cannot be bothered with conserving HP, looking for health packs, or burst firing. Make the game easy so everyone feels good.

I also don't play games as much as I used to, but that's been changing since BF3 is near.

I got the urge to play GTA4 expansion packs that I never did and play old BF2 mods like Forgotten Hope 2.

I think it's just because the gaming market has been so stale the last one or two years.


Protip: Joining a group or clan of people that play the same game you do helps. Gaming is much more fun when in an organized group that you know will always be there.

I got kind of the same way awhile back. Most games are just... meh to me.
The only thing I can really suggest is find a group of like minded people and play some games with them. Most games double in fun if you know the people your playing against.
I can honestly say it's made games last a bit longer for me, as far as time played. And I've tried some new games I probably would never have and really enjoyed them.
Maybe that's what your lacking?

As I get older the really fun/well made games seem even more fun and the rest are hardly fun at all. I think as you get older your taste gets better and therefore more exclusive.
