Gamer Burnout

Mark Withers over at Platform Nation describes a phenomenon which is common among gamers. "It’s a phase that most if not all gamers go through and based on the fact that according to statistics, the average gamer is a 35 year old, the chances are that those who read this article have at least experienced Gamer Burnout at least once."

Unplug your system(s) and do other stuff.

About a year or 2 later (maybey 6 months) you should be rejuvinated and will be happy as a clam to be playing again.

I get "genre burnout". I have never just been sick of gaming. Ever.

if the demo is a good representation of the final game then I know it will cure my Gamer Burnout.

My demo impressions are here.

I'm currently in a burnout phase. Its been 3 weeks since I've even touched a game. I have no motivation to play any of the games I currently have. I'll probably go to the game store later this week and pick up a game I haven't played yet.

I still love gaming its just nothing is appealing atm. Hopefully I'll be out of this phase by next week.

Just before my holiday I bought a used copy of burnout revenge for the 360. I've been playing the game every single day and already have spent over 200 hours of online racing.
Addicted to burnout is a lot better than a gamer burnout :p

Gamer burnouts usually happend in a long summer holiday when almost no good games get released and you already finished the ones from the months before.

I have that phase at least once a year

Megaton3006d ago

Same, maybe 2 or 3 times a year for me.

But it only lasts for a day at the most.
