I agree with this,
Doing anything for too long is never gonna make it better.... Take a break from Gaming id say thumb.gif Pick up a book, do something new, rolleyes.gif

I have done this myself a couple weeks ago, and i find myself playing a game once a week for a couple hours. For the rest i do other stuff that i need and want to do aswell smile.gif

At first i didnt turn on my Pc for about..... 2 or 3 weeks.
Then i started overclocking tongue.gif
My joy with overclocking (learning) then i wanted to benchmark.

So id turn on a game like batman to benchmark, and later i played it for a hour or so rolleyes.gif

I get this feeling too. I tend to lose interest in games very fast, so I just don't feel like playing anything. Which is a shame, because I just graduated and I'm on a sabbatical with only a part-time job, so I have plenty of time.. It's like the opposite of before, where I had no time, but wanted to play video games all the time. It's sad, really..

Yes, although I don't have a kid or even a girlfriend. Most nights I tell myself I'll be doing homework but I just don't, I try and play games but they get so boring so fast now. It's more fun with friends but as you or Stryk mentioned it's more of a social thing. Most nights I find myself just sitting on Facebook listening to music alone or going out with friends driving around pointlessly because we get so bored. Last night was the first time in a while anything interesting happened.. We actually went to a haunted house which wasn't scary at all.. It was more fun driving over because we made some new friends that we met. rolleyes.gif

Going from icon to icon trying to get myself to play something, anything. But nothing seems worth spending hours on.
I used to play MW3 multiplayer a lot, but it seems that every game I log on has some cheater/hacker and I end up returning to my desktop & stare until its time for bed.

Yes, I've just been downloading movies/TV shows rolleyes.gif
Life is so boring and pointless, I think it's just because I've just had an epiphany that the girl that I've liked on and off for the past 4 years doesn't give a blind .... about me anymore and it really hurts.
I don't even have anyone else to talk to about it but meh. Life goes on, I just hope for my own sake I get into uni.

Anyway I should stop going on about my personal life here and talk about games not my personal/love life. I don't even understand how i got to that. rolleyes.gif

On the other hand, I sometimes have that problem too. Bought new rig, played games I wanted now I'm sitting on powerfull rig, switching between youtube, facebook, OCN or other pages every minute, sometimes I play BF3 or LoL on lowest details with very high effects (yes biggrin.gif) to realise how much better I am then everyone I HAVE to play with and they block me from getting higher, get pissed off and then somehow the day passes.
Got also pretty disappointed when I found out my friend with 2,2k elo on lol plays only normal because he bought the acc and truly is lower then 900 skill-wise, when my 2 dayz friends got banned for cheating and when another "friend" stole my items I lent him on game (though nobody would steal item worth 2 hours of time or $4 from over 1 year friend)

My son is nearly 2 now, same thing happened to me. Even when I do sit down to relax with a game, you can never really fully relax. There is always something that needs doing or i've got my eye on what he's up to even when the Mrs is looking after him.

Just the way it is. These days I enjoy games that I can pick up and play a couple of rounds of, then put down again. I leave for work at 7:30am everyday and dont get home till 7:30pm then there is the house that needs stuff doing.

It's just how it is.

The video game industry is in a sad sad state if you ask me. I found what you described In the OP happening to me a lot so I started to get into other stuff with my PC like water cooling, overclocking and benchmarking so I have something else to do.

I say you ought to give Chivalry: Medievil Warfare a try. It's only 20 bucks on steam! I haven't had that much fun in a game for a long time or desired to play a game as much as this for a long time. I have loads of fun and smile and yell and OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH all the time!

Yep, been there even though I'm still a youngin with no kids. I've gotten to the point where 95% of games do NOT interest me. The ONLY thing that drives me to play games is the competition against other players.

Try playing some multiplayer games of your favorite genre.
