Suddenly bored with gaming! - Page 2

post #11 of 81
lol I'm in the same boat as you man. My attention span when it come to the game that are out right now is very small. There is not a game out there are now that can keep my interest for more than an hour or 2. frown.gif Only 2 games have kept my interest this pasted year Batman Arkham City << but only until I finished the game and BF3 << and now get bored after an hour or so.

EDIT: This guy above me has the right idea too. ^

Hmm I do like that idea. And what better time to stop than the beginning of summer?

I hit my depression and went out and got my self a girlfriend. Theres an example of what I did. wink.gif

So I thought I would get back into Star Trek Online. After 20 minutes I was bored.
Then I tried the TF2 and L4D2, both popular choices with me.... nope, bored after an hour. The servers seem a bit... empty of late?
Currently I'm back playing Sid Meier's Pirates! (2004 version) which is fun, but no doubt will be bored of it soon!
Help! helpinghand.gif

Why not try a racing game or something fast paced like UT2004? Sometimes a fast paced game with plentiful action is a nice change of pace. Or would you prefer it the other way? Nice and slow paced like Dear Esther, or maybe indulge in some Virtual living in Second Life.

Or you could get an emulator and rock some old Pokemon games or Mario.

I'll also suggest learing to play guitar or some other hobby. There is lots to do.

Just to clarify that I do already have a girlfriend, a job and I play drums as a hobby, amongst other things redface.gif

Yeah I do love emulators and have tons of games (all legal of course, just like my Linux distros! wink.gif)

Yeah, the legality of ROMs are a bit iffy. Not sure what the rules are here in Norway, but I understand that in the USA they are illegal unless you own the game?

Same boat man. I realized this within a week of dropping $3k on my machine though :/ But it's all good, I still enjoy looking at her and adding stuff to make her even prettier while she folds away thumb.gif

The only game I really have a desire to play is BF3 and since dice refuses to get their **** together with the fps issues, I am left with no desire to play that either.
