wow.... ummm.... no, not really.
I dont know about depressed...but I was super excited for Skyrim. Leading up to it minutes felt like hours..... I havent felt that way about a game for a long long time.
Well i have the GTA V blues....:(
I know. It's going to be a long one :(
to be honest i never got excited for a game im always "meh"when a game comes out
Same here. The last time I got super excited for a game was when I got GTA 3. Now when I get a game, I'm happy that I have it..but I'm not like "OMG OMG OMG!"
even bf3 or black ops dident get me hyped i think we have a problem :(
I don't think you have a problem. Most people outgrow their "Nintendo 64" kid in them.
Kind of in the same boat as you. Is it weird that I get more excited for game announcements than the actual game itself?
IMO. Its from being on N4G/the internets. Watching GP vids, trailers, talking about it and hearing people bashing/praising a game for months/years... Its called overkill.
Same for me. I stop my self from being on the hype train. I only get excited for games when I get them.
I actually suffer a "No time for the game depression" or a NTFTGD syndrome. I often refuse to play a game, until I have scheduled a proper time frame for it. It kinda sucks, its really hard to find that timeframe for hundreds hours of gameplay just for a single game, like lets say any bethesda game. I remember being a kid... had all the time in the world... *sigh*
Didn't realize this existed. I can understand anxiety but not depression; maybe anger since it wasn't what you expected.
But I do suffer from Depression when the game I like doesn't get a 10 from every one. It's ridiculous when it gets a 9 or even an 8. Seriously, an 8 means it is a piece of shit.
I think its because they announce games so soon. If they announce it at e3 and released it 3-6 monthd later then its ok
The first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem!
