Ever think about retiring from gaming at the close of this gen?

I'm considering it. Pretty much seen it all. Have a ton of backlog on countless systems, countless games to REPLAY I only beat once or never.......ever consider a retirement?

By stop pursuing "new games" "new systems"..just stick with what you have and fade into the sunset...mainly retire from the notion of "keep buying"

I won't retire from the hobby of gaming, no. But the constant "rat race" of upgrading and buying new consoles and staying current with the times... Yeah, I could see myself getting apathetic to that part of it.

There's always been that one be-all-end-all game that's pulled me into the new generation, though. So I can't say it WON'T happen next gen, but it's gonna take something truly special to pique my interest.

I've thought about it. But it comes with each new generation for me and I think most of it boils down to how much I have to spend on a new console. It can be daunting and sometimes feels easier to say "no I don't want to spend that much. I'll stick with what I have." But then a new "must play" game comes out and i cave.
It does not matter where we go. It is not the destination that is the journey.
