The PC Gamer team share some of their personal choices, ranging from Far Cry to King's Quest.
Lego games. I still like them, but they are basically the same thing over and over again.
I'm burnt out on the fps CoD's, Bf's. Also kinda burnt out on the open world games even though I still enjoyed them.
Got burnt out on Call of Duty after Black ops, burnt out on Assassins Creed after Brotherhood, got burnt out on Far Cry after Far Cry 3. Got burnt out on Destiny and The Division, also got burn out on Watchdogs after the first game as well. The games that I am still playing though - Dark Souls III, God of War - on my second play through; same as Detroit Become Human (second play through as well). I'm still playing Battlefield 1 (what can I say I just love Operations)
For me it is the racing games that’s try to be too realistic I used to put god knows what hours into Gran Tourismo and Forza but much prefer Forza Horizon now. Can’t be arsed with one mistake and your out as I refuse to use the rewind function
Me, when I see defeat, I drive round the track backwards trying to derail first place. Not sure whether they've put a ghost feature in place now but back when, like you, I put several hours into racing games, I enjoyed its collision mechanics. Totally agree with you on the FH front. Couldn't help but feel as though FM7 felt more like an elaborate expansion to FM6. I think that's where I got burnt out the most. I've said it a million times before, I'd love to see another spin-off in the Forza franchise to go alongside Motorsport and Horizon, if, for anything, to add pacing.
Horizon is the best! Hoping for Japan in FH4... fingers crossed!
open world games and western rpgs that look like fps shooters. but there are also entries that made me go „i guess i‘ve had enough of this setting“ after the first entry. tomb raider (this reboot thingy) or horizon zero dawn comes to mind. uncharted i also was already fatigued after the second one. got a very low tolerance for BS, i can‘t help it.
It looks like you need to step back and enjoy reading books and some social activities than.
Can we skip a year of COD?
If we grab them by the money they will listen.
Ive skipped for 3 so far xD
Yes, it's easy to do, just don't buy it.
Yeah I’ve bought one in the last 8 years.
Need For Speed, Assassins Creed and Sid Meir's Civilisation, I'm thoroughly tired of those series.
Assassins Creed, fifa, battlefield and cod
Uncharted for me / "Naughty Dog" 1 was good 2 was great 3 was ehh and by 4 I just could not sit down and play the same thing again. Naughty Dog makes some of the most beautiful games ever but between Uncharted and The last of US they have just got so repetitive. Do something fresh with that amazing studio it does not always have to be a 3rd person game.
4 is so different then the rest.. First go play then pass ur judgement
I tried to play I put in a couple hours, Im just tired of the series.
That's interesting coming from someone who loves forza.
Im tired of all Sim racing games. I love Forza Horizon series though its the best racing series going today, Sim racers are all about the same and its sad you can open a new game and already know the tracks.
Well no one forces you to play Uncharted tho. If it's not for you, you don't need to play Naughty Dog games. Play what you love. I'm pretty sure the developers at ND are out doing themselves so no need for you to worry.
ND games used to be must play games. Just fatigue for their games. Id like to see them do something different.
Pokemon, Uncharted, Assassin’s Creed (by far the most), Call of Duty, Mario Kart... off the top of my head. I mean, I played these titles to death, and I would still probably play them every now and then (EXCEPT AC), but there’s so many games to choose from nowadays and backlog games lol
Totally feel the Pokémon fatigue. Couldn't even finish X and Y and haven't picked one up since. Also anything Bethesda since Fallout 3. I know I'll get a ton of disagrees with that last statement but after Oblivion and Fallout 3, there really isn't any reason to play the sequels. They get more casual each iteration and are essentially the same thing reskinned.
Call of "rinse wash and repeat" duty
I don't see how you can get burned out on a series. You don't have to play every sequel.
@Element smh, no of course u don't have to play every sequel, & usually it's associated with burn out. 1 can get tired or burned out from too much of something.
I think that is the point. You don't want to play the next one because you are burnt out.
I wouldn't just associate game burnout from just one series, but in general, there are so many games being developed and released, it is impossible to try and keep up with everything that sounds interesting. Too much choice becomes a little overwhelming. I just try to stay away from anything released annually and sometimes might skip sequels if they're not too different from their predecessor.
Call of Duty (after Modern Warfare it's the same thing), Need for Speed (after Hot Pursuit, 1998, then, strangely, any of the titles after Hot Pursuit, 2010), Assassin’s Creed (seriously, just stop), any Naughty Dog game after the first entry in the PS3 era and up (the story isn't fascinating enough and the gun play is kind of boring), Mario Kart (after 64 it was hard to get back into, because of new game mechanics and the Battle Mode sucks), Gears of War (any after 3. The story is over, which makes any afterwards so lazy that no one can hide that it's a cash-in). That’s all I can think of off the top of my head.
Far Cry . Last 1 I've played personally is Far Cry 3.
I've never been able to play any series back to back except uncharted. But that was probably because I borrowed the collection and wanted to return it in a timely manner.
Call of Duty, Assassins Creed, Fallout and Halo. All interest is lost in the future titles of these games for me
Fallout? Halo? There’s been 2 fallouts in the last 10 years. And only 3 mainline halos in last 11 years
Assassin's creed is one of the worst for single player. They spent all that time on Desmond and that story arc and basically threw him away in a hurry at the end when they decided to cash in on the franchise. If I played multiplayer I'd be burned out on CoD too.
Call of Dookie (CoD), Assassins Creed
Lol definitely the one in the picture! COD did it too.
I don't usually tend to get bored. If I get bored with games I start reading books and other activities until I feel like I want to play games. In that way I can motivate myself to appreciate developers who creates great single player contents. Don't give 2 shit about Multi player. I'd rather read journal articles than play multiplayer only game. Nothing to learn plus you get violent playing MP only games.
Call of Doody. I beat the WW2 campaign and then sold it right away. I always keep the games for the year for multiplayer. I have zero interest in codblops 4. So burned out with all the microtransaction stuff especially when you have to pay for crates that have a chance at getting a gun that should be unlocked by leveling. Its ridiculous to have to get crafting parts to get a gun. The grind is ridiculous. The series has lost its way.
All shooters. Im hoping Red Dead rejuvenates any interest i have left in them
Anything with crafting , micro management and open word.
