I too have experienced this. Right in the middle of Red Dead Redemption. It only lasted a week though.

I just take a look at the overwhelming increase of amazing titles i need to purchase and play, that i just let out a sigh and consider giving up gaming. Of course the effect is only temporary, but yes, it happens.

Exactly how i feel when i start up a MP game. Absolutley no motivation whatsoever.

Kill. Die. Respawn. Rinse. Repeat. The same for all MP games.

At least with single player, there is a decent story allowing me to continue playing just to know what happens next.

When I wrote this I figured that other people would have similar dry spells. Its a shame when it happens and its strange how your feelings change towards gaming. I definitely felt relieved after it was all over though.

Being a journalist myself, this happens to me more often than not. The 'Dry Spell' hits me a lot as far as new games go. They lack the fun levels of older games ( to me ).
