So I think I'm done gaming..... - Page 3

post #21 of 34
I can forsee this happen to myself as well, I am actually been thinking to buy a high end socket 2011 rig with a reliable sabertooth mobo + with 2 high quality super GPUs all run at stock speed total reliability, and then mark that as MY last desktop, and quit desktop for good lol.

I figure after I get an FX 6300 and finish my HTPC, i'm done for a while. Oh, and get a new PSU case and RAM for my other rig.

well there are few reasons why you feel like this

#1 You dont have a TEAM or Friends to play with a Multiplayer online Game
#2 You mostly play Solo Games
#3 You dont play demanding games in terms of Skills AKA DOTA2 or Starcraft BW or Starcraft2 that keep u motived to improve and keep track of tournaments and such
#4 Most of your friends usually hangout beer and discotecs and u feel guilty of not being included on that social group
#5 Your mom is always remembering you how importan is for you to study and stop your long gaming sections
#6 After u already Got your DreamMachine there was nothing less or exicting about it... it happens...

My advice will be keeping the Rig and trying to play a game competitive not just Playing to Play.

I would also hang onto it soulwrath, only thing I would do is maybe sell a gtx 590, sell that power supply and buy one half its size. You never know when you might wanna get back into gaming...I always every now and then think "oh id love to play that old game I used to play", so just install it.

Funny thing i didnt pay for the 590s wink.gif lol and its more like I am tired of competitive games, i am korean aka i am a master in sc2, a diamond1/challenger in lol - played cs 1.3-1.6 @ cal-i level back in my HS years
And most of my friends are gamers, my mentor, that lent me the 590s, makes me play mmo's that demand graphic power (cause he made me buy a 3D monitor and play it 3D lol) so yeah - it may be as you said though I am just burned out from gaming on a regular basis and i may return but we will see

Thanks OCN <3 the suggestions but time will only tell

These types of threads pop up now and again. I can't help but think that my PC is more than just a game box to begin with.

My primary interest in computers has been simply to 'trying things' and fill in time gaps between work and physical sports activities.

The PC is a tool for exploration and in this case one you have customised for a purpose..

^ i spent hours running those and looking through old demo's all the way back to the 80's


i just like flashy lights and music redface.gif

I was (still am) in these same shoes. I parted out my rig except for case and DVD-RW. Then I tried out a PS4. What a disappointment that was. I just sold that a few days ago. Right now I'm down to just a PS3 and a laptop.

The tech-geek inside of me wants to build but I know after that fun is over....then what. I'm only into using these powerful machines for FPS gaming online. IMO, that genre needs some fresh gameplay. IMO COD Ghosts is the worst in the series and BF4 is the beginning of the end of that series too.

I've tried just about everything else and just can't get hooked like COD or BF use to grab me.

get into building your own Arch Linux OS buddy. It's a learning curve but in the end its the same as custom building a Rig but its free and will work on the laptop.

Then your customising without spending any money and there are some good foss games too.
