Perhaps your taste in games has changed. Mine sure has. I used to be really big into action shooter games, but now that I am getting older I love the strategy games like Civilization Revolution and Risk and then only on a less frequent basis than when I was a kid.

I think a lot of people go through a temporary break from video games. To me it is sort of like writers block, you might just need to go out and do some outdoors stuff and live a little without gaming then usually after a while you'll feel like playing again. That's at least how it went for me.

I have not really enjoyed any pocket gaming since the gameboy advanced.

I own a ps vita and it just sits in the corner in its case. I had a 3ds once but later got rid of it. The switch has like 1 game I would even consider playing on it and that is smash brothers. I can't buy a console just for 1 game.

While I do play h1z1 now on ps4 a lot, I also bought the spyro trilogy. Detroit become e human I find to be the game I have been waiting for quite so e time. And I like to come back to it like once every few months.only because I don't want to suck the life out of that game completely just yet. That and I have not had enough guts to kill Kara at all. Eventually I will.

But overall I have been trying to find something other than another Royale game to keep me company. After spending a few hundred dollars on crap after # and crummy game.... I just sit and look at everything like a store gazer now.

I even walked into my nearby mall with 300 dollars to spend only to walk out of the other side not spending a single dime.

Hey GiulXainx,

It sounds very familiar your mission to find purpose.
Had the same struggle and still have it, i found out for me that a 'active' social life is the best remedy to keep my interest alive. Stop talking with friends or stop making time/lose them for some reason and gone is that stability, it is not clear at first, after some time the realization will come that games (often Solo games) do not offer a filler for this void.

Once hosted a server and had lots of fun doing that, but your not gaming anymore but programming, adding items and see the positive reaction of the players (becoming a actual hobby quickly) you could try that with one of your more favorite games but this is not why i made this reply,

might have a game for you that you can still enjoy (if your love for games renews that is
as i read you disliked the fact you can never play the antagonist, here you can be as evil as you want and are encouraged to do so even, have a look at the trailer and see for yourself, the second game is even made in my Country and also encourages you to become the biggest evil overlord there is, two totally different games and both allow you to be just simple EVIL

It's part of growing up.

My buddy still buys the games trying to convince himself he will play them.

They just sit there new

I have lost it again. Is this a cycle? I have tried to get back into gaming only to be overwhelmed by it once again.

I can't stand RPGs anymore because of the relationship it has with GRINDING. Ugh... I am so sick of grinding.

I can't play any Battle Royale game now because it separates you into groups of people with certain skill levels where as you are playing with essentially a bunch of clones. Makes it hard to see how other players adapt to you. Seriously I don't like the online shooter game scene anymore what so ever because of this... hive mind thing they have going on behind the scenes.

I can't even enjoy playing games that are single player adventure games because they are just.... way too big.

Fighting games are now a nuisance with each one trying to re-invent themselves with some new mechanic or gimmick... What happened to the old combo driven games without that stupid chance to hit a "secret" or "special movie cut scene finisher" in the middle of a fight like the DBZ series started with budokai.

I can't even enjoy simulators like city building anymore because I take up too much time trying to get funds only to find out the mechanics in the game are still STILL hard to use.

I seem to be getting overwhelmed by games now. I still love the uncharted series but I haven't really played any games like that for a long time now.

I lost it again.

I thought I had revived it but I only want to burn it out of my mind forever now.

The last new game I played online was: Apex Legends.

The last single player game I was playing was Spyro 2: riptos rage when I just stopped playing it all together. The last handheld game I played was Luminess.

And the last time I played a game period was well over 2 and a half weeks ago.

I look at the games in steam and GoG and I just think about how much time I am going to waste in the game either Grinding, screaming, or generally just not liking because of its setup.

I think my time for video gaming has come to an end. I don't like it anymore. Especially when every game is now coming out with loot boxes for aesthetic pleasures instead of content with CONTEXT.

Even simple games I can't even begin playing because I just can't. I can't even begin to download it. I can't even buy it. I have so many games just sitting on my purchase list that I don't even download anymore.


I think I just need to let it die.

Cyberpunk 2077 comes out soon, hold tight, you might like it.

Outer Worlds is another to keep an eye on.

MOBAS and Battle Royales are garbage game concepts for lazy devs who wish to create no actual story or character development.

Theres a lot of # games out there, you play the # ones, you will think you hate gaming.



A decent game doesn't force you to grind, instead it knows how to progress you through the story.

not a fan of korean grind at all.

Try Stardew Valley. It's very emotionally rewarding.

Ah. What i wouldn't give for an Uncharted 5 to come out and be released to multiple platforms.

I have a newer console but mainly use it as a cable box. Next to my TV are shelves of hundreds of NES and SNES games. I play the old ones more than the new ones. Play some MegaMan, or sky kid, or smash TV. Newer games are becoming less and less unique. Promoters find something that works and squeeze all the juice out of it. I'd rather play GoldenEye than BlackOps... Hell, I'd rather play Wolfenstein 3d or Duke nuke em than most current fps games.

ETA: Also, I'm just frustrated with losing my games with newer consoles. PlayStation, Xbox, even Wii. Never had my NES, SNES, or N64 break down. Cartridge gaming for the win.

Or get a VR headset for a new experience in games , looking at a flat screen is one thing but being in the game is completely different ,I'm a new convert but looking at me race a car in Project Cars 2 to is no where near as cool as being in the cockpit of a racing car in Project Cars 2.
