Well, it's happening boys, and I'm actually quite sad.
Video games are no longer doing it for me. I used to love coming home after a long days work, smoking a lil weed, and enjoying an hour or two or some quality gaming action. Nowadays (the last month or so), I have lost that desire.
Maybe it is caused by lack of quality options ( I am a big counterstrike / MMO guy), or maybe it's simply a byproduct of growing up (im 25), but I think the hobby is fading.
Is this happening to anyone else? I am just not enjoying my time spent gaming nearly as muchh as I used to
Gee this thread again.
Mind telling us why you felt it added to the story to say you smoke weed? Oh that's right, you stoner retards can't go one paragraph without telling the world.
Go die in some painful way. Glad you are getting tired of the hobby. We don't need your type.
I know that feel OP, though I don't smoke weed.
Finding my way slowly back into the fun with Splatoon, Wolfenstein New Order and Ace Attorney.
Try and play for fun instead of playing for the sake of it
I felt like I was going the same way (25 also), however I've really enjoyed MGSV, Fallout 4 and Siege and spent a long time doing playing them (not even touched TW3, BB). Work, gf and gym may have helped sharpened my love for gaming given I have only a couple hours every day I can play. Still I will admit that games like Souls and Xcom basically singlehandedly saved my love for gaming in recent years, shitty cinematic game design can't be left off the hook, people dropping out of gaming isn't just "getting older" given most peoples love for film, literature and music doesn't wayne as the years pass, if anything they strengthen.
good goy, it's not that videogames don't do it for you, it's that you haven't played a good videogame in a long time. I also thought for over 2 years that I was "over" videogames. Then I played a good vidya and I realized it was just that I hadn't played anything good in too long.
It's a combination of growing older and most games being shitty these days. You can only stomach so many EA blunders, rehashes, Ubisoft scams, kickstarters, SJW indies etc. before you get fed up.
The same thing happened to me for a few years and then i got into competitive fighting games. Too bad ive still lost interest in pretty much every other game genre. Used to love muh weeb JRPGs but cant be bothered to play through that shit. Why the fuck would i play weeb games when i can just go watch some /a/nime instead and not have to push buttons
I like how there's literally not a single even remotely smart person who smokes weed. Either only retards smoke weed, or weed really does destroy people's brain, but it's one or the other for sure.

Reaching idortdom has opened my eyes. I can't tell you how excited I am for the games this year.
Try broadening your horizons OP.
I think you guys are harping on the weed thing too much. I'm in the same boat as this guy and have never smoked weed. Shit's scary man. I want to enjoy vidya but it's all so dull now. I just think about all the other shit I can be doing.
>Reading isn't that bad
>Started watching classic movies and shit
>Doing full body workouts 3 times a week
>Hanging with bros whenever I can
Life is getting better for me, but vidya has been getting worse and worse for me. I've been on a 2 month video game hiatus so hopefully my hype for it will come back.
The only thing holding my interest is lurking on /v/ to keep up with what's going on still.
That's because you only started gaming because it's the in thing to do. You're a fad whore, you only do thing to feel accepted and to draw attention, such as smoking weed and telling everybody else in the world that you smoke it. You're just yet another normie.
Don't worry, soon you can find another thing to jump in and pretend to be a massive fan off to cope with your daddy issues.
That guy a qt though, a shame if it's you.
competitive games generate high amounts of adrenaline, if you play a lot it burns you out or if don't play for long periods of time your hormone levels get reset in a relatively same manner. Doing other adrenaline production activities like working out, having sex etc also influences it.
nope its the lack of games you grew up on that drew you in, good stories, new mechanics blah blah blah now its 80% annual shooters, "new" shooter, sports games, "indie" shit with "retro" aka half assed grahpics which are subpar compared to what they are trying to be "retro" like, sports, mobas. you have to wait almost 2 years for anyhting decent to randomly crop up now combine that with the freedom as an adult with disposable income you'll just move into somthing more engrossing
