I seem to be getting less and less anticipated for every new game. When I'm playing games, I've started to just 'zone out' and stop paying attention during cutscenes and gameplay. I keep playing, but im just staring at the screen thinking about other stuff. Then, I'm so used to all the cliches that I see things that are supposed to be "twists" or "suprises" coming a mile away. I used to be able to handle cheesy lines, but I just can anymore, I cringe so hard that it just pulls me out of the fantasy instantly.
I also used to really enjoy online gaming, but I get so bored with that now. I honestly think CoD is partially to blame for that though. They just recycled everything over and over. I thought Titanfall would renew my interest, but that wasnt enough either.
I literally have about 10 games that I havent been able to bring myself to get past the first few levels of. I mean its gotten to a point where games arent giving me joy anymore and I feel like I'm playing games because I think I should, because of nostalgia or whatever. Which really sucks because gaming has been my favorite hobby for as long as I can remember, and has given me so many great times. I'd hate to think I've outgrown gaming or anything like that.
Maybe, I've just tired myself out and I should take a break from gaming for awhile? Has anyone else ever been in a similar situation?
too much of a good thing.. is not good
doesn't matter what it is.. if you are doing the same thing over and over.. soon or later you will get bored..
take sometime off.. and come back..
I'm not sure a break is exactly the proper cure. If you happen to dislike your job then taking a 15-minute break will only lead you away for a little while from the task you already know is not to your satisfaction. Instead, it sounds as if maybe you're not enjoying the sort of games that you're buying. Hype may lead you to buy all the "big" games each year, whether that be the next Call of Duty, Titanfall, Watch Dogs, The Last of Us, or similar strains of video games that may have their good points but may also not be too unique in their nature.
Why not try some different games that you never thought about buying? There are plenty of great games out there that people won't typically suggest for the most part. The same ol' stuff can be enjoyable every once in awhile, but perhaps you need to escape from what you know and discover something unexpected.
