Lost the urge to play games, need to enjoy playing games again.  

post #1 of 64
Thread Starter 
I have a big problem... Im in a deep slump.
Lately my urge to game is declining, actually for over a year already frown.gif.
I have something deep within me that keeps telling me I find gaming fun and wants me to play but as of lately i get the "meh" feel(apathy) whenever i start to play a game.
Skyrim was that great that it was a exception, but not long it only lasted 26 hours, with mods many graphicmods to keep me playing.

I want to play but i cant get any fun out any game anymore that i did have out a game, i tried picking up some old games but it is just not there.
genre i like : (MMO)RPG, (MMO)FPS, Action, actually almost anything.
I tried to pick up some MMO's, i liked them before cause i liked to play with other people communicate etc, but that too didnt get there..
I bought Portal 2 couple days ago, neither i want to play, why?? I dont know i am in front of my computer reading Manga,and some really boring ones too, i only do this becuase of my boringness.

I do watch Anime& read lotsa Manga, but this gone great with it each other before, I also don't see a real increase in doing it either, there is a increase becuase of me not gaming.
I also do have got less time to do fun things, but this shouldn't mean I don't get the feeling to click start of the game. I have perfectly >1hour to play games a day without it hindering my other activities.
It was more before but well the decrease shouldn't decrease my hunger for gaming but increase it, right?

Well it ain't the perfect place to ask this. but how can i make gaming fun again?
I really needs some tips as I cant continue Gaming is a part of me and it will always be!
There is me that wants to game but there is something that blocks me of hitting the PLAY button.

I also do want to buy the PS Vita as i own the first PSP(Phat) I want to game but this problem stop me from buying, but I also Kinda want to buy it.

Now I am spending so little time in Gaming like 3-10 minute a week that it just doesn't feel right anymore..
Im very serious and need some help, no not mental craziness help but some advice to make gaming fun again,
I did have a idea of letting it rest and charge the desire of gaming but this doesnt work and I am scared of leaving the scene forever.

Thanks

I've encountered the same thing at times, usually trying something completely different brings me out of it.
Recently, I tried Alice in wonderland, the madness returns- I was VERY pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the game, best single player game I have played in a long time.
Good luck, and GAME ON!

Most games are just grindfests now. I think I'd rather work.

Try playing games that arn't that hyped. I've found pleasant surprises in games I knew little about.

Go play with your real life friends or get the new star wars mmorpg. wait for diablo3 next year.

I think you're just playing games that you don't like and you're making yourself like it. Its not gonna happen.

Im sure we all go through this at some stage.

When I get this way, I pick a book (paper or e-book) and read. Usually its a Warhammer 40k novel or something historical. As I read through, I slowly get the urge to play out what Im reading.

Once the book is done, Im ready to rock and roll again.

Try it, cant hurt thumb.gif
