How to make yourself stop playing a game... u like? - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Uninstalling your game isn't going to work. I'll be frank - you want to stop playing but really, a week after you uninstall, you will think back, you'll probably watch a video of BF3 gameplay someone uploaded (you're probably subscribed to a few dozen gaming channels on jewtube) - then you'll regularly check back in on battlelog before you'll give in entirely and just re-download the client. You probably might uninstall again and repeat the process all over again. Again.

Why you would continue to play that worthless excuse for an FPS is beyond me. Pointless suppression and client-side hit detection make a terrible FPS. But if you actually like both of those, or you play in blissful ignorance of either of them, that's a different story altogether.

Until you realise you are playing one of the most rushed and consolised FPS's out, you will keep playing until BF4 is released.

Or you can just keep playing lmao.

Yeah, bf3 is addictive. Get yourself banned? delete your account? Run a macro that shuts your computer down whenever the bf3 process is present.

Or keep playing, don't mind the haters biggrin.gif 600 hours is a huge investment and I can see why it would be hard to turn back.

I am in the exact same boat and gaming time is limited so play what you enjoy. Soon there wont be the masses of ppl playing them. One of my favourites games went down to like 2 servers cause everyone left, project reality, it was so fun and I miss it. Right now all I play is CSS lol and I want to reinstall ultima online too haha really old school

At the end of the day if you played it for 600 hours then there's no reason to stop because clearly you like it. Unless it's getting in the way of your normal life, i.e. you stop going to work lol.

At the end of the day we play them for fun or sometimes even for competition/bragging rights
whether it be BF,CS, or any of the other shooters as long as you enjoy it though I do agree with you on the Pointless suppression and client-side hit detection, it could have been made better.

Depends if you are trying to moderate your time gaming as opposed to doing other stuff. I try to play a few other games so I don't get burnt out as easily but this sounds more like an addiction issue lol. On all honestly just tell yourself you can't play all the time and actually get off the pc would be the best bet. Do something else, spend time with your family, go out to eat etc, see a movie. I know it's hard cause I used to have withdrawals taking breaks going out to dinner with the family look, but it's not so bad anymore smile.gif

WOW, holy crap that is dedication. My hat (or construction helmet, rather) goes off to you. Did you mostly play over LAN/online or story?
