The assumption is that you're still into gaming if you're on this site. Sometimes things get in the way like relationships, school, or finances. Any good stories?
What's the mostest, coldest, most turkeyiest you have ever quit gaming?
In a way, I quit gaming cold turkey twice a year for a few months. I am at university and for the second half of high school and all my time of university I don't have time to play games alongside my studies, so I almost exclusively play them during winter and summer break (today I just played my first game since January for instance). I tend to play short indie games and roguelikes, so it's not difficult to quit once school starts. I still use the site during those periods.
I guess probably in college. I mostly only played NBA 2K with dalliances into stuff like Resistance for no clear reason. It wasn't until Playstation Plus started going on its heater in late 2011 or so that I caught up on a lot of stuff I missed, and then the 2017-2019 era of PS4 was pretty fuckin' wicked and I'm fully back in. Or at least, as fully back in as a guy that maybe buys ten new games a year yet listens to like five gaming podcasts.
Haven’t, probably won’t. I can see myself not having time to game for extended periods of time if I wind up starting a family or something, but I can’t contemplate any scenario where I would intentionally quit and divest myself of all my hardware. Even if the industry completely runs itself into the ground and everything becomes evenly split between shitty NFT live service PVP games, tryhard Souls-clones, and indie pixelart roguelike deckbuilders, I have oodles of classics in my backlog in case of such a personal apocalypse.
i don't have a good story, but i have a giant hole in my gaming history where from 99 to about 07 i didn't own a console, and even then i was only sporadically playing pc games.
chalk it up to boarding school and college, i guess. but yeah, ps2, OG xbox and gamecube are all completely foreign to me.
I tried to 100% Final Fantasy X-2 and somewhere in the middle of Chapter 4 (out of 5, MANY hours in) I realized my percentage was off from the guide I was using.
It made the whole thing feel like such a serious waste of time that it kind of broke me and I didn't play any video games for a couple of months.
