    I have one question. I have had 10 different major interests in my life around video games and i am just wondering, is it normal for me to rotate between them, losing interest in them because i have played them so may times it just becomes boring and repetitive, only to come back to them a couple of months later after i have lost interest in something else?

    to give you an example, this is what i went through last year:

    Guild wars
    and now im on to xbox 360, ive only got it a few days ago but its already getting repetitive.............................. is there any way that i could extend the level of interest in the games i play? maybe get more than 1 interest at a time?

    assuming that you play assassin's creed, repetition is a common complaint.

    just play something that actually interests you. if a game actually engages you, you don't necessarily lose interest prematurely.

    Well, just stop playing for a while. Video games are a good distraction, but playing them for 3 hours a day each day of the year?... that's too much. Just stop playing for a while [​IMG] then after you'll get a strong urge to play [​IMG] , play [​IMG] then quit again [​IMG] . It's what happens.

    I hardly play video games anymore, especially for the Nintendo DS. Excluding a week or so ago, I hadn't played my DS in six months. I play Mario Kart Wii every now and then, but not much.

    I haven't touched my 360 since November. I just got my R4 back a week ago, but I've lost interest in it.
