I am just not that into gaming anymore.
Try as I might, I am typing this instead of playing Darksiders. It is unopened. I will just take it back tomorrow. I recently beat Assassins Creed 2. I went through it in about 20-25 hours. I unlocked all 1000 achievment points. I loved Uncharted 2, but not enough to play it again. I beat MW2 on medium difficulty, but haven't touched it on Veteran or Multi. A little Spec Ops, but that is it. I sleep about 20 hours on my days off. I am so tired. Am I "growing up?" I have been gaming since I was 5. Almost 27 years later and I am more interested in casual experiences. I am excited for Bioshock 2, but I already know how its going to go. Pick it up at midnight sale after a 12 hours shift. Get home, eat dinner with the girl, probably watch either House/24/HIMYM/Heroes/BBT and play for an hour before I fall asleep. I just beat Gears of War 2 on Insane...I bought that at launch.
Do I just have post win blues? Where you focus your attention to one particular title and then are lost for a bit afterwords? Since beating AC2, I have not really devoted much time to any serious gaming. The aforementioned GoW2 and 1v100.
Maybe I am just burned out? I work in video game retail. I talk to people about games, ring them up for games, steer them away from buying used 360 time bombs of sadness. I read Destructoid and other gaming sites and magazines. I am buying Heavy Rain, Bioshock 2 in the next few weeks, but I have yet to play Dragon Age and even Fallout 3, even though I bought the expansion content. WTH on that btw.
Anyone else feel this way? Recommendations? read
