post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi,

i am a 32years old, married man with a baby girl ...
and i do really love my hobbies which is gaming on my PC... im the type of guy that play just 1 game to death, that when an amazing game comes out, i can barely touch it , due to the fat that i like to much the other game that i still play... in this case Battlefield 3.

i have almost 600hours in BF3 and every time that i have free time, i would like to start playing one of those games that i have installed and never play lol, because BF3 is such amazing game and absorb to much of my free time.

have u guy past for this situation? how did you work this out? i would like to push myself to start playing other games but its to hard lol

any suggestions?

Hmm How about uninstalling bf3? No dont do that Im joking lol. Honestly Im the opposite of you in this situation as in I for the past 3 month haven't played a thing, its almost like a gaming depression but I feel like Im about over it. Anyway you could try Hiding it in origin so when you start origin the Play button in bf3 wont be there. good luck. thumb.gif

Stop buying new games until the thirst for BF3 goes away. If it doesn't, then no real loss.

instead of specific days how about setting up a time where you cant play bf3 like no bf3 till 6pm in the afternoon so that frees up the morning for you to play other games and focus on other things but that also depends on your work schedule where you cant play BF anyway. biggrin.gif

If I get too addicted to any one game I mess up my keybinds real bad to the point where learning the new locations for stuff just makes me get off. I don't have this problem much anymore though since I only get about 4 hours of game time a night if I'm lucky. =/
