I need your help here guys.
Gaming isn't as fun as it used to be and no matter what I try to do I just don't enjoy it...Its something that has been slowly building up for the past 2-3 years and I am finally at a point where I do not enjoy gaming at all.
I have all the money necessary to buy consoles and best games that the industry has to offer, but ithe concept of gaming just isn't engaging to me anymore. It's either too tedious, too slow, not fun, too stressful or a combination of things. When I have spare time that I used to dedicate to gaming I usually find myself reading books, watching sports, even doing house work...all before I would consider booting up a game or two.
Is the party over? Has anyone lost their gaming mojo and somehow eventually got it back? Should I just accept its over and move on?
It's probably because of the state of the industry. It's not pushing things to the extreme like the PS2 era was. We aren't seeing very many genre defining games and experiences. Most of it is just treading the waters of last gen, with slightly better results... if you get my drift (hehe).
My advice? Take a break! Don't even think about gaming. Put all of your consoles away. Stop coming here. Stop thinking about it. Take a good long break and don't come back until you feel passionate for it again. If that happens, you'll thank me. If not? Then the party really is over... over rather, the old party is. The thing about life is this... one thing ends, another thing begins.
You'll find something to replace gaming if it's truly the end. No worries.
