i'm really sorry for all those folks that have the "need" to play every game. And can sit in front of TV or monitor for 8-10 hours and finish a game in one sitting.

I keep my gaming to about 1 to 2 hours a day. Got my work now, plus finally fixed my bike. Its the ****ing summer again, time to go out and be alive.

(note, I will be eating these words once I buy portal 2...)

I wish I could say I was tired of drinking and smoking too lol. It'll come to me.
marathons are awesome. did my first 10k in april. much easier than i thought.

Yerp- I just don't have the interest I used to. There's presently two games I'm really looking forward to- Skyrim and Rage. And I highly doubt I'll beat either in one sitting.

Honestly, I'm more interested in other stuff as of lately- shooting real guns in real life (gotta' several hard drives my buddy and I are fixin to "recycle" as a matter of fact ), enjoying the lake just a five minute drive from my house, or explorin' the woods just beyond the lake. Lotta' stuff to do. If I can get my old man to give me some of the old back packin' gear I may just take a trek up Mt. Lassen one of these days.

Why is this sticky? We need a sticky named "I spend more time gaming than outdoors"

I just get so much pleasure out of stabbing people in the back of the neck, i really will probably keep doing it for a while longer.






I mean in the game

I was going through this before (like 2 years). Now I dont play that much as I did before, but I am again enjoying gaming at most evenings. 360 or pc. Doesnt matter. Fun matters. I also seem to feel more mature, not needing to play every game on the market but only wisely choosing every game I play and having most fun of it I can.

Also with DNF coming in a month, I am crazy hyped as I wasnt for like couple of years. It feels good going crazy about a game that Might actuall bring my childhood gaming feel again for some time

Lately I've just been playing a lot of Magic the Gathering Online (nerdism galore!)

A little FPS fun on the side and a RPG here or there, with some Assassin's Creed or Deadspace 2 sprinkled on top.

Once SW:TOR comes out though, I don't think I'll shower for a month.

Same here.

After pounding out code for 8-10 hours I have much less desire to spend significant amounts of time playing games. It gets more and more difficult to actually play a game all the way through these days and I can't remember the last time I re-played a game I finished.

It's becoming the same thing with my phone. I don't think I've installed a new app since starting developing for them.
