Bored and depressed with gaming.... - Page 9

post #81 of 151
I have a 2 year old. Part of the reason gaming is boring are the games are really really bad now of day. And there are some many problems. I never remember spending most of my time on drivers for games 5 years ago. They usually worked well the first time and there was always new maps and mods to download for free. Now its all about money and content is really lacking even after spending $80 on one game with expansions it still is lacking.

totally agree man. For me the cut off for a pc game is about 20 bucks now a days, because i cant ever justify 50 bucks on a pc game. Console games are a little different because they have a trade in value although small, atleast i can usually get money back if it sucks. But since I have gamefly I can try a few differnt games a month and usually none of them are worth keeping. I tend to find more satisfaction out of replaying old score rpgs and pointing and clicking in d3 when i have to feed the baby.

recently bought dow ii: retribution the 3rd expansion in dawn of war 2 series and even though it was less then 6 bucks after tax I know i will barely touch it, just another game filling up hd space and sitting in steam....

I've been going through a lot of the same things.

Growing up, I played games often but did not necessarily have a large collection of games. I spent a fair amount of time playing the popular games of the day that any computer could run (StarCraft, Diablo, WarCraft 2) or browser games. I pretty much used my what would be deemed low to mid ranged spec computer to spend loads of time in my favorite games or play emulator games. And when it came to higher system requirement games, I was happy running the games in medium or low graphical settings.

So during my last winter vacation before graduating in May, I was like you know what, I should go ahead and build a higher end system that can handle some of the latest PC games at high graphical settings. I built my system last November and fast forward a year later, I've lost this desire to really game. I graduated in May and did spend a long period of time looking for employment and I start my new position on Monday, but the desire to game has just nosedived.

Pretty much the only current game I play is League of Legends and I only want to play maybe one games once in a while I find myself gravitating back to the old school games I poured hundreds of hours (Final Fantasy Tactics and Tactics Ogre) or my other interests that involved the computer (programming, watching anime, reading manga, fantasy sports).

Kinda sad that I finally get myself a "gaming PC" and my desire to do "gaming" on my PC isn't really there. Maybe it's the tipping where it's no longer the carefree days of school.

Because for me, school always meant free time and the ability to do what I wanted to do in my own time. School was easy even when I was getting my doctorate and maybe this new job looming, I don't know what to expect.

I think I too have hit the age where gaming no longer excite me. I don't mean it is not fun, but rather I can't get myself into it. That or maybe games nowadays just suck. I mean have you watch the new tomb raider gameplay? There is a cut scene every 10 second... The other explanation is I have already play all the best game in every genre. I only play Team Fortress 2 now, just to pass some time.

The games I look forward to playing one day are Warcraft IV (to whomever is wondering, WOW is not Warcraft IV), and Half-Life 3. Hopefully they will live up to my expectation.

I feel ya bud. Are you simply not into the Starcraft series? I play SC2 just like you play TF2. Time pass/sink. I would love for a WC4 but I feel like the warcraft universe is nearing it's end.

I know how you feel, this could mean you need to take a break from gaming. You ge bored of it if you play too much, just like me. Every time I'm off or on break for a week, I would think, man I can spend my whole week gaming! 3 hours in and I don't know what to do and don't feel like gaming anymore.

Set objectives for yourself, "I want to get to this level/item/etc. by today/week/etc." that will make you have something to play for.

For example, I've been playing league of legends and I love playing it with my friends, I don't get bored of it. Games like that don't get repetive, every game in LoL is different. You can change how the game turn out, win or loss. I set goals in league, such as getting enough money "ip" to unlock more champions "characters" that I want, eventually I want to have every champion, but I have to play to do so smile.gif

You have to set a goal, otherwise you would be stuck being bored, just like I would be sometimes.

Or take a break, you've been playing too much you are getting tired of it, imagine eating ramen everyday for a month. Eventually you'll get the urge to play games.

I hear you I'm starting to get sick of gaming because of the crap that's getting released and getting rehashed 9,million times and charging ludicrous amount for games that are half finished and making you pay extra for content.

The only time enjoy gaming now is re-playing all the old classics makes me appreciate my age now hahaha and that I got to grow up playing game's of excellent quality which where actually challenging and you didn't have to pay for extra content and all that crap.

I think thet the main problem is that the PC has been getting the short side of the stick for about 4 years now and it will only get worse as the top rated modern PC games right now are mostly consolized ports of games that werent even considered good on the console.....my advice would be to pick up a PS3 and get the following games:

MGS4
Uncharted Series
Red Dead Redemption
and the other PS3/Console exclusives that are amazing and fit the category of games that you like to play
Consoles will continue to be getting the big/best games which is why recommend picking one up on the Black Friday Special with the Uncharted pick which is exactly what I'm doing. Anymore the PC Gaming forums that I visit are dying (this one for example) and all they talk about is graphics anymore......whatever happened to good game play for PC games?

The last good PC game that I played was Deus Ex HD which is a console port along with Dark Souls which is also a console port.......the last good PC exclusive game that I remember playing was Super Meat Boy and that game is about two years old now and made by an indie dev.....pretty pathetic.
