Anyone else just bored of video games or too lazy to play them?

"too lazy to play them"

That actually makes sense to me.

Yes, I'm in a slump right now. It happens more and more often the older I get.

Congratulations, you've grown up


Don't see how that's growing up.

My little sister doesn't enjoy gaming anymore. She's 24 still lives at home with our parents, works part time and doesn't pay any bills.

I still game. 25, have my own house a wife and a child. Support my family. Which one is the grown up?


Being "grown up" has nothing to do with how pretty your white picket fence is. It's a maturity level which is a mental measurement. It's behavioral.

Do something else sometimes

Don't buy a game just cause its a steam sale or sale somewhere else. Nothing like having a libaray or 200, $5.00 games sitting unplayed. You could go on vacation or do something else excellent. Buy a new PC even.

Try a different genre maybe. I got board of console games in the early 2000's and moved onto MMO's for a few years. When I was done MMO'ing console felt refreshed and there a ton of cheap games to pick up and catch up on.

I know what you mean tc. As others have suggested, find a new hobby and come back in a year.

I got bored with games for a while but I rediscovered them and now there's not enough hours in the day. Friends who game help a lot

Assuming this is not a problem with overgaming, in which case, take a break...

Try switching genres. Burned out on FPS? Load up Civ V or Europa Universalis, polar opposite. Get into that for a few hundred hours. Then someone else that felt old will feel new again.

I tend to play strategy games and select the largest map and longest game speed. Sometimes it takes me weeks to finish a game. Oftentimes I save the game in the middle of a playthrough, don't have time to play for a few days, and then forget everything that I was doing when I load the game up again.

I was unemployed for two years prior to getting my new job so I did have a lot of marathon gaming sessions where I would play after job searching. I didn't have anything to do so I'd play until early morning and bang out a huge map of Civilization IV, Marathon speed, in a few days. Those days are over now though, so I'm back to playing smaller maps and shorter game lengths. Long games are so epic though.

So growing out of gaming is more mature than owning your own property with your own family, working 12 hours a day? Nice logic there.

Stop trying to feel like you HAVE to play, and wait till you WANT to play. If you want to play but just can't find anything then you're at "500 channels and nothing to watch" syndrome.
