Tired of Gaming
 
Ever felt that you got so tired of gaming? I'm at that point right now. New PC or console games just don't interest me anymore.

So do you have to motivate yourself now guys? Like how bob motivates pepis? (nana2)

Seriously, I just upgraded.

Like most hobbies, you kindda go through cycles of interest and periods of not so much interest. Kindda like when doc doesn't respond to my txt messages one day, and the next day he is like an animal :bleh: find a game that gives you particular pleasure :bleh: for me, it's Hello Kitty with Cinematic Nude Mod 7.

Portal 2 should be a blast if you've got that one...

yes, i bought a 50" plasma for BD films for times like these, and started sailing

at 35 years old i am not as addicted to games as i used to be a couple of years ago and go though phases of getting bored quickly. I have not played BC2 or BC vietnam for about 2 months now due to the boredom i feel playing that game

I'm just rolling with it. Actually parting out my rig, a good deal of it's gone already. Granted it's mostly due to not having much spare time to game, but there's really nothing new interesting me lately.

I think DS2 is the only game I really enjoyed recently, Crysis 2, Portal 2, the new Batman coming out...I just don't seem to be interested.

Gimme a few months when things slow down this next winter though. I'll wind up building another rig and getting all these games for cheap. :)

I'm kinda bored of games right now myself, but I am enjoying Crysis 2, it really surprised me, it's really good (IMHO). Don't laugh.

For some reason I'm not that interested in Portal 2, I don't know why. I loved the first one. I am actually looking forward to Dungeon Siege 3.

same boat...

and tbh most games that come out are just not that good as they used to be...and most are squeals that are worse that the first.

very boring atm for me.

Games are just shoddy lately.

I suggest getting into games you wouldn't normally look at. Something like Shogun 2 will give you hours of entertainment.

Lets pray Brink is all they say it is. I have been gaming a long time and it's like a roller coaster ride. I have been though this cycle a lot.

I'm definitely bored of gaming at the moment. I'm enjoying stupid flash games more than multi-million dollar AAA titles these days. Spending $60 a game is getting tiring when they only last a couple of days and multiplayer is just getting dull now.

It cyclic for me. I am really into games, movies, TV, books, or etc... usually only 1 or 2 at a time then as I get bored I move to another till I get interested in it again. For me Dragon Age 2 kind of put me off gaming at the moment. I was excited about portal 2 but I have been thinking about canceling the preorder lately.

Console ports dampened the excitement. I'd like to see more games that push the boundaries like Crysis did. but that's not going to happen thanks to consoles.

Yeah, but people were saying this when Far Cry was released. And when Crysis was released. And before that, probably when the Secret of Monkey Island was released.
