Feeling...bored with gaming :S

post #1 of 41
Thread Starter 
I feel quite bored with gaming at the moment. Sure, L4D is a lot of fun but its re-playability is getting lower each time I play. I have GTA IV, and it is fun to just go online every so often and kill people but it never holds me for too long. I have tried tons of mmo's, each one has failed to really draw me in. I just returned to eve and am hoping to get into that a bit more (but it seems too slow for me). I am growing tired of fps in general as well... I re-installed Sins of a Solar Empire today but the games take too long (and I suck ). I guess I am just looking for a game that has great online and that I can really enjoy. If anyone has some suggestions for games they really liked (not a fps or single player rpg please) then PLEASE help me out here. I really hate being a whiner online, but I am just so bored!!!

Thanks for any suggestions

Seems like you just need to take a break from FPSs and shooting games in general, why not try a RPG? or an mmorpg? Or maybe a mixture of a shooter and a rpg, fallout 3 for example. Or go for a realism game. ARMA or Maybe if you like command games, Silent Hunter 3/4. Or, go for RTS's!!! Nothin like the good old Red Alert Days So, World in Conflict

EDIT: And Far Cry 2 is good, but it gets repetitive...

spelar lite dota! songs awesome

(Play some DOTA - defense of the ancients WCIII mod)

I'm in the same boat you are man, I've recently gotten back into counter strike source, Diablo II, HOMMV (awesome for single player). I'm just waiting for Diablo III honestly. Until then browse around for a certain genre your itching for. Sometimes I feel like rpg, sometimes FPS, sometimes strategy ya know Whatever genre you feel like goin for browse up a few games and ask for advice on the best one. GL w/ the boredum!

I have WiC it was a lot of fun. I am going to try and name off all the games I have... here goes...

- All Half Life
- Crysis
- Crysis Warhead
- COD 1,2, 4
- WiC
- Supreme Commander + expansions
- SC
- Sins of a Solar Empire
- GTA IV
- CS:S
- Day of Defeat
- Stalker
- Age of Conan
- LOTR Online
- WoW
- EvE
- BF1942
- BF2 + expansion + both booster packs
- UT3
- UT GOTY


I can't even think of them all (trying to do that by memory lol). I think I might give EvE a real shot though.

I haven't heard much about darkfall. What is so great about it?
