Do you guys ever have those stretches where you just really can't get into videogames for whatever reason? I have them every once in a while but lately, it's been really tough for me to find a game that I can get into. Just wondering how often this happens to you dudes.
@Yorick: Ya wow that's a long one man. I didn't play any games during the Fall semester, played games when they came out during the spring semester, and now there's like no drive for me to do it at all. I mean I usually only play games during my free time late at night, when i'm not working or out with friends...but lately i've been resorting to watching movies and reading. It's super weird.
I'm constantly getting hot and cold on games. Most games these days just don't hold much interest for me beyond a few hours, so I find myself forcing my way through games I'm kind of bored with just because I have nothing better to do. By the one or two hour mark of most games I have usually learned all the mechanics, and I can tell where the story is going so I lose interest fast after that because there is rarely much else to look forward to.
The biggest instigator of gaming slumps for me is when I lose that go to middle game. For months Bad Company 2 was my middle game. The one I could always fire up for a few hours and know it would be good, but then I just lost interest with it and after a hard drive format I did a few days ago I just never felt like re-downloading it. I'm currently playing Dungeon Siege 3 co-op with someone because they bought me a copy so they had someone to play with, but it's not a very fun game and I'm just doing it because the guy bought the game so it's the least I can do to play it with him.
@hoossy: Yeah, I can't think of any game besides CoD 4 that I've beaten twice. Mass Effect 1 and 2 may be the 2nd and 3rd around the time that 3 comes out (A lot of numbers in that sentence).playing through a game twice is VERY VERY difficult for me, unless i've had a long enough gap in between playthroughs. I usually try starting a second attempt right away and start skipping stuff and then I just get bored.
