This happened three years ago. Been playing it since.

The bitch of that is when you actually do force yourself to beat a game it always ends up lackluster for the energy you put into it.
>tfw haven't picked up a game in a weeks but still post on this board
same here bro. I have to fully flesh out each area, and i end up getting bored with how slowly i get through games, its only a recent problem like last year or 2
>mfw i cant remember the last game i finished
Here's something that always happens to me when playing open world games
>start the game up
>do some main missions
>"hey, if I keep doing the main missions it'll be over before I know it!"
>start doing side missions instead
>get bored by the side missions
>stop playing the game entirely
This has happened with Skyrim, Red Faction, Just Cause 2, Sleeping Dogs (but I later downloaded it again and finished it), Witcher 2, and many more that I'm forgetting right now
ALRIGHT I'M GOING TO CLOSE 4CHAN AND DO SOMETHING. WISH ME LUCK!
happens me so much. Also games that force you to grind by doing shitty side missions for hours before progressing, and you just end up giving up entirely.
Borderlands 2 being the one that springs to mind

I can't stop this. I feel like I'm on drugs. I can go all days on this shit without ever thinking about it. It's terrible. My attention span has become to shit for anything else. A moment a game starts to load or some shit, I just check /v/ on my phone. This has gotten out of hand. What's a decent treatment against this? Adderall?
i think id fucking explode
Closest i got to this was fallout 3

I want to play vtm:b and have it installed and everything, but can't see myself playing it in an hour.
You're normal although if you went to a psych he'd tell you you're fucked in the head. Everybody is fucked in the head nowadays. Apparently being different is considered a mental illness.

I do this too.
I have a movie paused on my second monitor right where it says the movie title. 1 minute and 13 seconds in.
It's been like that for 20 minutes.
No game backlog is worse than a person with ADD/ADHD.
For instance, Dark Souls? I finished the tutorial quest and stopped. Been meaning to play it for a year now.
I really need some ritalin for that.
Ritalin turns me into a savant. I can focus on anything with it.
Trying everything to get my doctor to see I need it. I'm learning AJAX principles, XMPP, Java and C# all at the same time.
I have 4 different ebooks that I am working on. I switch between them all regularly when I've had enough caffeine to actually start.
I'm a fucking mess.
Made it to 2 minutes and 45 seconds in my movie now.
Of course it does. The comedown sucks, it's addictive, post-piss drip is extremely annoying. Think you shook it all out? Nope, it'll drain down your leg if you don't wait.
Same for all of the CNS stim ADD/ADHD meds.
I recommend Ritalin/Concerta over Adderall though by at least 1000 times. Adderall is just a drug. Everything about it. You will think your work is good because the serotonin rush, but it's shit and you will fail. Ritalin/Concerta is basically Einstein magic.
Don't trust Internet vendors.
You can find research chems ethylphendidate which is close (Ritalin is methylphendidate). Never tried it, but I heard it's close.
I don't have the spare money to try it out though.
Also I used to workout with this stuff called "Craze" - Made my brain work like magic. Got so much work done when I was on it. Crazy crazy intense work for hours and hours, days on end.
Turned out that there was a methamphetamine analog in there that was banned in several countries. Product got pulled.
I'm the same way. Couldn't focus on anything, couldn't sit still, couldn't even do shit I enjoyed for extended periods of time.
Doc tried giving me ritalin but all it did was give me more energy and make my mind race even more.
i like seeing these threads because sometimes i start thinking adhd isn't real and i'm just a huge fuckup. it is really annoying not being able to just sit down and do shit, i can't even read books anymore. feels rail bad
>tfw enjoy Xen
>tfw hate blast bit even though it's everyone's favorite area
>tfw think Half Life 2 is borderline garbage that captures none of the feel I'd expect from a Half Life game
I hate single player shooters anyway. Half Life 1 was great due to it's claustrophobic atmosphere, extremely "raw" feeling (which is a complete absence in every other single player FPS ever released) and reliance on great level design rather than constant theme park-esque bombardment with novelty that Half Life 2 opted for.
Half Life and System Shock 2. That's it. The only other good FPS games are arcade stuff like Doom, Duke and Serious Sam, but it's really a different genre.
Hate playing games. Feel forced to set them to the highest difficulty because otherwise it feels too breezy. This causes me to put in hours of time trying to get/do/etc. to make the goal that much more difficult. This trivializes most current games and leads to ANGER and HATRED during games like SH3 or games with DmD type hard modes. I've also grown to despise games where hard just equals triple enemy health and damage. Shit's lazy.
>forgot about thread
>realized I had made some posts in this thread
>realize that all those that replied to me probably have left due to ADD
Man, this shit has gone out of control.
>have game with tons of mods
>get bored and uninstall it
>see thread on /v/ about game
>have game with tons of mods
>get bored and uninstall it
I feel similar.
Especially about bullet sponge enemies. Thank God I had the good sense to go Hard instead of 1999 on Bioshock Infinite else that piece of shit would be even more boring than it already is.
I hate video games anyway, they just feel like laundry list of predetermined shit to do.
I know that feel, m8s. I have always wanted to play JRPGS but I just can't. I don't have the attention span. I can barely even read anymore. Lots of plot and character details just go right over my head. Poorfaggotry keeps me from getting therapy and meds.
I'm in the middle of a JC2 playthrough and that's happening. The game is just too big, I can cope with a GTA game but in JC2 you have hundreds of copy pasted settlements to complete and the stupid police system (seriously, those helicopters won't stop spamming)
I hated two things in JC2 that ultimately ruined the whole game for me.
First of all, the fucking red flashing screen every time your health gets low. It's terribly confusing and annoying.
Second, the fact that if you choose a difficulty you have to stick with it forever.
I started in Casual (because back then I was a retard) and finished it. Then wanted a challenge but I unlocked way too much shit, so I just said "man I'm not going through that again just for some more interesting police chases" so I quit.
I did finish it though
Another bad thing about ADD is that nothing gets me motivated or excited.
Go drink an entire pot of coffee (which I regularly have to do) and ideas start flowing, motivation comes out of nowhere, you want to work on stuff. 20 minutes later it's done.
Caffeine, CNS stimulant. Adderall/Ritalin/Concerta etc, CNS stimulant.
It's bullshit that I cannot self-medicate and some asshole as to tell me I have ADD.
"I don't think it's ADD, I think it's confusion caused by depression. I'll start you on 100mg of Zoloft. We will change anti-depressants every 6 months if it doesn't work."
It's been 2 years now and still nothing.
1999 and no vending machines. Still dull, compounded by a few terrible areas. Lady Comstock was just....bad. Destiny's bosses and ME's base enemies have a serious bullet sponge problem on harder difficulties. I also never found myself being satisfied by most shooters emphasizing relatively wild firing over tight, precision upper body and headshots. For fuck's sake, older arcadey shooters asked more of you accuracy wise.
That's the reason why I have a perfectionist autism. I don't waste my time and unlock all those shits again. Some game are just more fun in the late game when you have everything.
I canned Xenoblade NG+ because I have to collect all those tiny collectiables and finish every quest again. It's just too much.
I have the same problem.
You see, for some reason I hate re-playing things with all my might, which means I'll always try my best to get the most out of the first playthrough. Sometimes it works, sometimes it makes me burn out on the game
But I wouldn't have it any other way.
Half-Life is just pretty boring, not your fault. What you need is a shooter with adrenaline packed action.
I honestly don't know what the fuck the deal is but I can't really play story driven games anymore. Over time my patience just started to dwindle to the point where I can't even take small conversations in an action game. A majority of the time if I can't skip cutscenes or I'm forced to stand idly by and listen to some fucker talk I just lose interest immediately.
I do this too.
I think it has to do with the stress of life. Nothing to really worry about when you're younger.
I have a very difficult time playing singleplayer games because of it. I usually stick to multiplayer.
I don't recommend watching videos. People usually have their own of doing things.
Just follow the quick start guide on the wiki for a functional fort and then try to do whatever you want by consulting the wiki.
Well I personally just find it annoying now. I've just become so jaded that I don't give a shit anymore. I don't give a fuck about the lore or why I'm doing what I'm doing. Just put a marker on the map and send me on my way.
I have the hunter mods and farming mods installed.
The idea of just hunting and farming while selling antlers and tusks sounds fun but I always end up dungeon crawling or doing quests within an hour.
LMAO op, i love you bro- omg im actually laughing over here. im laughing cause i can actually relate that's how i was growing up. im a grown ass man now and ive finished like 25 games but that adhd is still there. it's there in rpg games.
lol i love you op

just play it on EZ mode. Play like this:
You are Gordon Froman, #1 Scientest and PlayBoy Player.
Shit has gone down at ur Black Mesa Workstation, and now its up 2 u to kill all da enemies who want 2 ruin ur day.
Also play on easymode.
Then you'll never finish it.
Its game is about platforming, and running the fuck as fast as you can while killing enemies without them killing you, and solving puzzles.
Its not about waves of taliban and all the headshot killstreaks you can do.
Trust me bruh, you'll still take a lot of damage and die in easy.
He's right. Its a depressive, and if you're already fucked in the head it'll multiply your mental problems for the duration of the high.
Unless you're reaaaaally good about it and you focus on positive things, and don't let other thoughts or worries trouble you for that duration.
And then when you do get really paranoid, just remember that you're just fucking high, man.
>tfw no medical insurance
>can't go to a doctor to get stimulant of some kind to help with these feels because of Obamacare
>He'd rather not finish something
>Than finish it on a setting where enemies actually are affected by gunfire and are not solid blocks of concrete absorbing bullets
Hello, I'm not a doctor, but I have played Dr. Mario.
I say try to find some Salvia, get a water smoking device like a bong, fill up 3/4 of a small bowl, and toke it at a high temperature. Inhale, let it sit for 5 seconds to be absorbed by the lungs and exhale. Place the water device next to you someplace where i can't be knocked over, then just sit back and relax as your brain starts producing a happiness and laughter that you may not have felt in a long time.
Also mushrooms at a responsible dosage.
Yeppp, bought a bunch of cheap ebay games, played them about half way. Most of my Wii collection is half played.
Salvia is not synthetic, the fuck? I'd agree to avoid "synthetic pot", that's just scary, especially knowing that stuff comes from China with no regulation as to what they're putting inside of it.
As in you had a really bad mental trip? I mean if you saw some bad shit in real life and your brain got fucked that's one thing, but if you were out reading some occult literature and your moral brain couldn't handle it, that's something else.
Back on topic, you guys ever play a big ass RPG and do some good progress in it, then you just lose interest or forget about it, and you want to pick it up again but then you forget where you were going/doing or just want to start over?
>And then when you do get really paranoid, just remember that you're just fucking high, man.
It actually works. I've only been high from weed once and I got really paranoid when I was walking home. This guy was walking behind me and my mind was racing and thinking he was a cop who was gonna bust me for being high. But I just told myself "don't worry man, it's just the weed making you paranoid" so I didn't freak out.
>play any vidya
>look everywhere in the room before finishing the level

>stop playing it for a few weeks for whatever reason
>don't feel like picking it up again because i don't remember what the fuck i did before
Fucking brain problems, even if the game is enjoyable my mind just doesn't keep up.
You dumb motherfucker.
I know. It's just, in the mornings school started at 8. I would try to wake up at 6:30, but couldn't. Eventually, I would wake up at 7:10 - 7:15. Then I would take a shower for 10-15 minutes. I take 15-20 minutes to get dressed and then leave. I would eat breakfast if I could, because it is the most important meal of the day after all.
You basically have no energy, and are starving yourself until lunch time.
No energy/no protein = No brain power = Can't focus in class.
Then its worse if all you ate was sugary food/carbs during lunch.
Fats/Proteins are good to feed your brain and body.
Also eating cereal/toast = carbs + sugar, then the carbs get converted to sugar, meaning in the morning a kid is just running around with high blood sugar, no other actual nutrients or proteins.
Its called "Fuck developers for not making a game fully linearcosys".
If its not affecting your daily life, then maybe it doesn't matter. But if it is, try eating some eggs or something.
>Fats/Proteins are good to feed your brain and body.
Finally someone not spreading misinformation. I lose my shit every time people claim it's healthy to cut out fats or meats out of their diets in place of more carbs, shit is fucking retarded. Your brain needs fats because it's pretty much composed mainly of them. Excessive carbs do nothing but spike your blood sugar and fuck you over.
I don't have ADHD for sure even if i feel like i do OCD neither but i think the doctor is hiding it from me and mental disorders are all faked.But i am diagnosed with psychosis so nobody believes me.
>determined to finally continue P3, just to see if the story redeems the gameplay
>start up emulator, load savestate
>in tartarus, monsterblob in front of me
been doing that once every month for 5 months now. i had no motivation issues with p4
ya, it's amazing how people who carry on about to the highest degree of certainty about veganism or fruitarinism are themselves not nutritionists and gaunt.
processed food folks, stay away from that and soda, ie get the roast beef slices over salami
I haven't beaten a single player game in over 2 years now thanks to ADHD.
That's gonna change soon when I beat Custom Robo GCN though.
At least my ADHD has made me good at fighters. I constantly switch between various editions of KoF, SF, Tekken, SC, VSav, and
smashso while I'm not amazing at any given game, people say I'm a very strong player with solid fundamentals.
>You basically have no energy, and are starving yourself until lunch time.
>No energy/no protein = No brain power = Can't focus in class.
I'm usually in a similar position, I get a cup of coffee and some sugary shit. What is considered a good breakfast?
My psychiatrist, who is literally one of the best in the country, claims I'm a schizoaffective, but I don't really believe him. I wonder if it's a symptom.
>mfw me picking up lifting and eating a more protien-rich diet with a larger breakfast in 11th grade correlates directly with when my ADHD symptoms began to lessen
I guess it's true then.
doesn't seem practical to make this in the morning, an,y other suggestions?
skinny fuck here, what's a good breakfast that is both tasty and has whatever nutrients help me focus?
>all the problems with none of the energy
>You basically have no energy, and are starving yourself until lunch time.
Although I suspect this may be the problem since I only have 2-3 snacks and 1 meal a day. Generally a sub or pasta with veggies.
Eggs/Cooked meats that aren't bologna, salad is for peasants, but its good if its mixed with lots of things and not just "lettuce and dressing".
You can still have your toast, by try getting real butter, perhaps unsalted, instead of margarine.
ADHD is just a nutrition deficiency, so yes.
Now autism, you're stuck with that for life, anon.
Go eat some beef jerky and unsalted deez nutz and play something else.
Try making an egg/chicken sandwich with lettuce/tomatoes.
Some people have problems digesting onions, so you don't have to put that in unless you're ok with it.
Whole eggs, whole wheat toast, some omega 3 fatty acids, bacon for protein (or sausage) common sense dude. Make sure when you eat in bulk you exercise so those nutrients can turn into muscle.
>mfw tourettes doesn't affect my gaming
I don't have ADHD, but even I can't get by the first 15 minutes in Half-Life or the boat section in Half-Life 2. I'm sure they both become great games, but holy shit those opening sequences, such shit.
Eggs m8, they've got loads of protein and good shit. I have 3 every morning for breakfast with two slices of whole wheat bread for that fiber.
