I think I can say I'm finally burnt out from playing video games. I just rented Halo CE for 360 and No More Heroes for PS3 and when I play them, I find myself getting bored of it really quick, and after 30 minutes or so I turn it off. It's a shame because I just paid for Lovefilm 5 days ago so that's a whole month of gaming waiting for me. I knew I should've cancelled it... I had that gut feeling but I wanted to try out the games mentioned. Now I just feel like I can't play video games anymore. I'm burnt out. I also tried playing my 3DS and I'm still yet to play any of my ambassador games. The 3DS is a keeper though, definitely. Maybe it's because I've got arguably "instant access" to games; I've got Lovefilm and I can get any game I want (provided they have it) after 2 days of waiting, I've picked up some cheap games for 99p before my local Gamestation closed down (Prey, Gears of War, Resistance, Mass Effect, Avatar), the 3DS has about 20+ games that I still have to play, I've got some awesome games on OnLive in the form of Deux Ex, Borderlands, Mafia 2, Dead Island. Not to mention I can pretty much demo any game on that platform for 30 minutes and that will usually get me satisfied. My friends are way too busy with their dissertations/school/work/away on holiday. And I've just had 3 grueling months in uni and now that I'm on a break and won't be back to uni until next month for exams, I still got that feeling where if I spend my free time enjoying myself, I feel stressed and constrained because I keep thinking that I have coursework or something else more productive to do. Maybe those are the reasons why I don't feel the fun in playing video games anymore. Now that that's all out, I guess I gotta bring back my other hobbies, hobbies that I haven't enjoyed for a long time. I've been considering getting the Hunger Games trilogy books because I've been intrigued by it. Last time I've read a book was Deathly Hallows and that was 3 years ago. Any tempers here that are readers? Care to recommend any books for me to read? I like to read anything really (except Twilight). I may also carry on with my UDK coursework from uni and make it a fully fledged game (because we were only required to make a level. Not a fully playable level, just a level that can be walked through in UDK). Or delve more into 3DS Max, or maybe learn a programming language or two to be more proficient in it. I'm also considering re-joining the gym, or learn to play guitar. Any tempers here experienced burnout? What things did you do whilst you "were on hiatus"?
