I have all these games that I never play, whether on steam or my handhelds. I usually play a game for like 2 hours and stop or I almost beat the game and then stop and never go back. Many times I just don't bother playing anything even though I want to. I spend more time actually having discussions about games than playing them.

Anyone else have issues like this? What do you do to actually get into playing more games?

Idk if its just games these days can't capture my attention or what. In the past I used to spend hundreds of hours on like every game.

do other stuff honestly. Start being pickier with what you like as well.

Nope... although I've been there before. Typically when I get to that point, it's mostly from technology overload, and it's time to go out and spend some time in nature. Going for a hike, birdwatching, going to the coast or up to the redwoods or something, or just sitting outside in the back yard watching the animals.

Another thing that I'd do when I was totally not feeling up to exploring any games is look to other creative outlets - video editing, music, writing, and even ceramics once.

These days my problem is not enough *time* to play all the games I want along with everything else I want to do.

You gotta find something new when this happens to you. I was stuck in that rut a while ago, until I tried FTL and it revitalized my interests in games. I don't know if FTL will work for you, but if you haven't played it, try it at the very least. That, or play something very intense, like, iunno, a bullet hell shooter or something multiplayer? That way you won't get bored or lose interest.

I've become more selective of what I play.
I get bored of your standard AAA "experience" in a few hours, so I've more or less phased those out entirely.

I derive great fun from things like Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong, Cities in Motion, Civilization V, Kerbal Space Program, Age of Wonders 3, XCOM, etc.
And so I really only try to pick up games I know I will enjoy.

Gaming doesn't fill all my spare time anymore. I took up more reading, working on hobby programming projects, and cycling.

So the times that I do play games I am playing something I thoroughly enjoy, and I value that time more.

Can happen to everyone. I've had bouts of going months without playing any games. I just get burnt out, I guess.

I've always been that way, the only game I've completed in the last 10 years is the stick of truth.

I wish that was an exaggeration. Almost done far cry 3 though.
