I think im maybe the odd man here in this group, I remeber all the old games fondly, but almost every trip back in time has left me understanding how little i can stand waht was cutting edge in the past. I pretty much drraw the line in about 90.. even then its only a few i can deal with.
I can relate to the BURN OUT, im older then you by a few years and have hit that stage time and time again. In the last few years its gotton even more pronunced. I tend to hit it after some big games that i spend far to much time on. My last big slump was about ayear ago.. I was just finishing up the love/hate grind in WoW, Rift had kept me for a bout a month, and a few other games. But i was just plain not enjoying them. I went on a TV bing. I never been mutch of a TV watcher, movies yes, TV no.. so suprsingly i spent a few months just watching TV (netflix, downloads, etc) Stuff Like Psyche (fun show that tosses 80's inuendo all over), and others.. I pretty much did anything but gameing. Read a bunch of books on my kindle, did alot of projects i had planned but was slacking on doing ( car stuff, got a Vette that I tinker with), learned to fly RC heli (well sorta, still lots of work to do on that) tinkered with a bunch of PC and laptop parts and game some nephews and neices some starter PC's. Two of my EX GF kids are just getting to Driving age and .. well they are not getting cars out of thin air as their Birth fathers are ... well I will leave it at tht.. so I fixed up a couple of ok cars for um this summer.
err.. I guess what Im saying is.. leave um be a bit, do some other fun stuff. Heck even not so fun.. clean the garage, repair some that stuff. Catalog that stuff you alwasy "where" going to.. I do not think game burnout is treated more games, old or not. BUT i must say, we all treat our ailments differently.
I have enjoyed some games in the last year.. but other then Skyrim and WoTanks.. nothing has kept me playing past a few weeks.. Im in a current game lull and think some time off will help, it alwasy does for me.
