Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Have any of you ever reached a point where you weren't able to play good games with full immersion anymore? I'm burnt out. I have to say I never thought this to be possible. I always went in some odd cycle with my rather large collection of games. These games range from the Old (Total Annihilation, TA: Kingdoms, Jedi Academy, HL1, Deadlock, Freespace, to name a few) to the New(er) (Doom 3, Oblivion, Hellgate, Kotor, HL2 and friends, Crysis, S.T.A.L.K.E.R, Mass Effect.)
Much to my dismay, and even...chagrin. My immersion seems utterly destroyed. I've been playing Oblivion and have a bunch of awesome mods...but I found them very soon after I had completed a run through of the game. Thus, my focus was already in a fade. I have nothing on my shelves that seems to cry "play me again!" any more.
I seek help fellow enthusiasts and gamers. Spew unto me your stories or advice of times you were confronted by....disinterest. I've considered an extended audio visual fasting of sorts. Going "cold turkey" as it were. Perhaps you can spare me the boredom of relearning my hobbies and interests for a time in an effort to...RELEARN how to enjoy my most sacred of pleasures. Suggestions towards games I might have missed would be appreciated as well. This may be less likely to bring about any results. Chances are I've played it...or have thought to myself that I just wouldn't enjoy it.
