Anyone else burnt out on games?

Its not the games but you that are changing.

But they are changing though. As other mentioned, everything is now open world which are more or less same.

Play Yakuza 0, you will love it...play Yakuza 0 to Yakuza 6 back to back...high chance you will feel burned.

Play only the biggies is my mantra which guarantees a good experience.

Good for you, if its working that way. Rather than the biggies, I am having a better experience with indies like Limbo, Inside, What Remains of Edith Finch etc

I agree. Played Kiwami and then picked up yakuza 6 and I'm feeling a bit disinterested. I'll pick up a different game now.

Not really. Games have always been evolving, borrowing, copying each other for decades. That's just the nature of the beast. I myself rarely play open world games unless it's something that really stands out. Dying Light for example. That was brilliant. What I gather, the OP was getting burnt out gaming in general as opposed to you getting burnt out on a type of game, or a series of games. The idea of paying the same type of game or series of games back to back would never work for me or for any one else and I always wonder why people do it.

 

I pick and choose what I really really want to play. Anything else is I park for a rainy day. If you're enjoying the experience it doesn't matter if it's AAA or indie, you aren't burnt out on games in general, maybe just a type of game.

I never felt like this .....gaming should always be done in moderation.....if u play too much on a regular basis eventually you will burn out of it imo

 

I take breaks from gaming by watching new TV series or re-runs of sitcoms /TV shows I really liked.

Burnt out? Never. There is always something to look forward to.

With you, OP. It’s been several months since I logged into Steam, GOG or Origin. I don’t even remember the passwords anymore. Console is literally collecting dust as I say this. No new games bought since BF1. Zero excitement for E3. I realized that video games, movies, TV shows, internet etc., are nothing but (political) distractions from the real world damaging the young minds and their precious health. So, I am glad that I came out of it all. Because the real world is where the game is at.

In my opinion, media has always taught us nothing more than panic, suspicion and paranoia. It’s evidently turning everyone cranky, jittery and sucking out all the energy from their lives. Wrong lessons taught to fight for wrong goals. With them, left is right and up is down. Never forget that everything you see, read and consume is politically motivated. That I am very sure of.

 

 

Respawning is for plebs. Moksha is for patricians.

Sir, mano ya na mano hum bajrang bali ke bakth hain. Jithna dhoor raho ladkiyon se, uthna acha hamare svaasthy aur mano dhyan ke liye. Ye tho mein bade mann se vishwas kartha hun. Mujhe lagta hein ki mein sirf badi neend se uthrahahu abhi abhi. Aur kuch nahi. Amen.

 

Aap to pure redpill ho gye ho wew.

i thought i was the only one

 

btw all media we consume is political propaganda from only one side of the spectrum,only now do we realize it.

Just burnt out on all major franchises these days. Been avoiding almost all the big hitters that are released between Fall-Winter of every year. 

 

Life is good thanks to options like WarFrame and GoG back catalogue. 

 

same here,all major franchises being run into the ground 

good games never get sequels

everything else is a yearly cashgrab.

That's a broad generalisation which simply isn't true. This gen has been great for games. 

 

Bethesda's publishing arm has been killing it with games like doom, prey, dishonored, wolfenstien, evil within, etc. We also got great RPGs like Witcher 3, Persona 5, Breath of the wild, Divinity Original Sin 2, Kingdom Come Deliverance, etc. 

Ubisoft has come out with great games like Far Cry 5, R6 Seige, Watch Dogs 2, etc. 

Then there are awesome Japanese games like Yakuza 0. 

Also, a wealth of PvP multiplayer titles like Overwatch, Rocket League, Titanfall 2, Battlefield, etc. 

 

These are only off the top of my head and there are many great games released in the past 5 years.

There are plenty of good and plenty of bad games. If you are going to look at the bad side, you are going to miss out some good stuff. 

 

The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don’t always spoil the good things and make them unimportant.
