Bored and depressed with gaming.... - Page 11

post #101 of 151
I'm sort of in this situation as well. I was super into Wow, then SC2, then Diablo 3, then CSGO....

I've been playing way less CSGO. I had internet issues, fixed those and now I just completely suck at the game. It's just not fun anymore.

I recently bought Minecraft and Guild Wars 2, both amazing games but don't really get me excited to play for hours on end, especially by myself. I've never been captivated by single player games. I even recently beat Bastion which was an amazing game, but the whole time playing it I felt I was just rushing through trying to get to the end.

I too have found myself going on to my computer with the intent of playing a game, then just staring blankly at my desktop because i actually end up not knowing what to play. I then just end up browsing 4chan /b/ and destroying my soul.

Damn this thread is depressing... lol, feel the same way. My Gf recently left me, just when you thought I'd have more time for gaming, i literally can not stand to sit in front of my computer to play any game at all... I invested so much time in Diablo 3 with several paragon level 60's sitting for hours, now i can't even stand to play 10 minutes...

Like many on here, i'll turn the music, movie, facebook on, and it generally just sucks... My solution: Gym!

I was getting to this stage the other day, so I reinstalled HL2 and started playing that, I forgot how incredibly good the game is. I sort of feel like I should have got Black Mesa and played through that before going through HL2 again.

Go through all your old movies, one of my favorite things to do is figure out why old movies are so awesome with lesser technology than new ****ty movies. To start you off, Pulp Fiction & Face Off for my John Travolta fetish. Terminator 1 & 2. Hackers if you want to see Angelina Jolie tits, though she looks like a boy in that movie. First matrix, Dazed And Confused, fast times at ridgemont high. That should keep you busy. If you feel like you need motivation to work out watch 300. The Truman show.

That usually gets me in the mood to play older games, just played Black Mesa- then bought all of the other half life games......

Yep, I can relate to this at least to some extent. Although not as severe as your situation I experience get occasional, yet often tediously long, periods of time where I feel absolutely sick and tired of gaming. I might feel like gaming but the thought of actually getting into a game, whether it's new or old to me, is simply too much.

If you're of the creative type or at least fond of creation in general I recommend you look into branches of computer usage catering to people like that. How about getting into programming, graphical design or perhaps even 3D modelling? When I'm tired of gaming I usually look to programming for time-killing. It's a great way to keep your mind busy and the good thing about it is that you can work on it even though you're not in front of the computer. Feeding the kid? Think about that logical issue that's been bothering you.

Although it may be physically health I believe it's important to keep things that you're familiar with while everything around is changing as drastically as things tend to change when you get a kid. Getting brand new routines and hobbies might not be the ideal path to follow. Instead attempt to branch out into your field of interests.

If you would happen to want to look into programming of any kind, feel free to give me a shout if you're wondering anything. I'd be more than happy to give you a hand getting started. I might be able to get you into contact with designers of different kinds if that's be more your speed.

Sometimes you just need to take a break.. Even if its a year or 2 or even 3 or 4.

Growing up, i played a ton of video games. 16 hours a day, no problem(on occasion), But when i turend 20. i just kind of dropped off, nothing really interested me any more.. I was tired of the drama that was always associated with them and the feeling i would get from knowing i played them too much and didnt really gain anything constructive for doing so.

That and it seemed like games were the same things, just with better graphics, which ive never put too much stock in. (good) graphics are great, but gameplay and good games are much better than the graphics, imo.


I am now 27, and ive been getting back into them, and have been for about 2 years, on and off.

The one i like the most, is League of Legends.. its a great game.. but i took about a year break because 90% of the people are terrible at the game, and i always have at Least 1 feeder and 1 leaver on my team, and its just pathetic. People need to realize they are just bad and either not play (and ruin my time and everyone on our team) or play bot games, or at the very least... tell people how bad they are, before the game starts.


But to get back on point.. just take a break man.. Wait till you are so excited to get or play a game that you feel like you are a kid again, during christmas time.. If that doesnt happen.. then you probably need to wait even longer.. Take a break so you can miss and appreciate games and what they have to offer.

I turned 30 in august and I even before that started to feel that I have just fell out of the gaming fad. I have been playing video games since I can remember and have been playing ever since. A few years ago I started feeling out of touch with gaming. I would get half way through a game and be bored or I would buy a game and not even play it. Just recently in the past 8 ish months I really started to think about weather or not I was going to continue with gaming as I have completely lost interest in everything and I feel that I am just ready to move on to something new. Who knows maybe next gen consoles will bring something new for me but until then I just dont see myself continuing in the gaming industry.

I plan on doing more with my life then just going to work then coming home and sitting for countless hours online. I feel that i am missing alot the world has to offer and I feel that I am screwing my daughter out of the same events. Shes well taken care of but I feel I could be doing alot more with her as in trips like Dino Museums, Planetariums n such. I just bought a brand new car and I look forward to customizing it smile.gif

I hear you on the part where you said you get half way through or you buy a new one and never play it.

I've bought several games recently and haven't touched them or only played the first level:
Down of war retribution
Dawn of war space marine
Fear 3
Duke nukem
also rented resident evil 6 and only made it through one campaign before letting my brother have my ps3 temporarily.

right now halo and black ops with the GF have been greeeat especially since we can play co-op when the baby sleeps!
