I can entirely relate. I basically stopped playing games when I went to Uni for about four years (I made an exception in the middle for Resident Evil 4, though - which was awesome). But after that time there were suddenly all these amazing games that I'd missed out on that I wanted to go back and play. A couple of years after uni I played through more games in a year than I did when I was a teenager!
Just take a break, the games aren't going anywhere
