I grew up with games. I think I played at least half of the games which are listed in various Top games of All times lists. I used to be able to immerse myself completely into the games, and play for hours and hours. Even in the last few years, every once in a while I ran into a title that I could really fall into and clock hours playing it - not as much as when I was younger, but still. 5 posts omitted.

Now this hasn't happened in quite a while, with really rare exceptions. I just can't start a new game, I don't have the patience to learn it and explore it, especially if there's a lot of things to take in (skill descriptions, complex game mechanics, long cinematics etc.).
I have a big back log of games on Steam that I purchased and never played, or played for a few minutes and then uninstalled because I just can't be bothered.
It's a shame, and it makes me feel melancholic.
Did anyone else go through with this? Did you find new hobbies? Is this thread even fit for /games/? Discuss, please.
getting high usually brings back those feelings of immersion. it works really well. however i understand not everyone has easy access to drugs.
That looks fun. I like the designs too.i
thread is one year old, these "too depressed to play games/don't enjoy them anymore" seem to pop up every now and then and I'm sick of it because you know the op just want to vent, and while there's nothing wrong with that fundamentally (i can relate) it would be better to keep that shit to /dep/ where it belongs please
