Bored and depressed with gaming.... - Page 2

post #11 of 151
Yea I go through this phase ever so often. I feel like some games are just not up to par and don't hold my attention. Other times I just feel bored. Playing a game with friends or socializing on a game is a plus. I just been leveling on GW2 by myself most of the time and well, it got lonely at times. Even games like BF3 and League wouldn't interest me at times, but as soon as I play with friends it makes the game experience better. Either try that unless single player is your thing other than that maybe it is time to start doing family oriented things. thumb.gif

ve been more interested in mods and greenlight / kickstart games than anything else.

Its not that ive lost interest in games per say its that all highly commercial games (yes even skyrim or battlefield) are just samey samey.

cant wait for cube world biggrin.gif


also ive been playing some really old emulated games and enjoy them more, there is a lack of expectation, you play the game rather than marvel at audio or sound.

turn on my computer to sit down and game and find myself on ONC refreshing the homepage to see what new threads have been made.

i have a $1,000 rig to surf OCN. but D@mn does this website fly haha

I blame it on growing up/getting older. I think I'm collecting games more than I am playing them haha. So many GOG titles that I haven't even touched yet.. but I get them when they are on sale because they are awesome or I wanted to try them years ago. Hopefully I will get around to them someday..

Maybe you can try some other hobbies, like case modding or something entirely out of the tech world.

This always happens to me during the summer when I have a lot of free time, but I started playing Portal and Portal 2 and I got back into gaming. Good luck.

this pretty much sums it up.......


I agree with you about gaming with friends, I met a few people while playing d3 and they pretty much helped pave the way to 60 and some free loots! I tried playing borderlands on xbox live but there was so much DC'ing and hosts leaving I couldn't actually get into a good party. Maybe I need to play more multiplayer to keep me interested?

I think everyone goes through this, I dont game that much anymore, and me, my brother, and shared friends always play mw3, but we havent played in over a month. Its just phases, I am mainly playing gta4 again now because I couldnt remember if I finished it before, so I am doing it in anticipation for gta5, and that is the only game I am playing in my ~40 game library. I play it maybe a couple hours every few days.

Yeah it happens to everyone, sadly, I just sit there and stare blankly at all my games wondering why I don't want to play them...

Guess its just that depressive mood everyone gets.

I used to be into gaming
then I got into reading forums
then I got into reading news articles
then I got into self improvement
then I got obsessed with career advancement.


I still kind of do all of those, but the focus isn't really on gaming anymore, my gaming computer isn't even connected right now and I used to game 60+ hours a week.
With that said my first job out of college will yield me about 70-90k a year depending on hours worked(starting as a senior analyst in the engineering department of an f500 tech/media firm)
It's a decent trade off, haha.

Figure out ways to grow and develop. Learn what makes you feel like a better you.
