Zach, Am I Getting Bored Of Video Games�Or Am I Just Casual?

Hello, Zack! I�m a 23 year old male from New York. I have an active social life, and have no problem meeting girls. But there is one noticeable "annoyance" in my life - video games bore me. Yes, you heard that right! Games are boring me, but why? Well let me explain, I own a Wii and 360 and can�t seem to finish any games! This is strange �cause I love reading about video games, and I listen to numerous video game podcast, shit, I even have a video game blog! I guess the question of me getting bored of games is a complicated one. Maybe I�m growing up? Nah, there are plenty of people older than me who actively enjoy games. Maybe I�m interested in other things, or my life is not going well? Hmmm, I am an active reader, play guitar, good looking, pretty good with the ladies, and snazzy dresser (I got these fabulous boots from Topshop the other day). Damn, then maybe the problem is with this generation of games? Hmmm, I have the same problem with retro games. Look, Zach, I�ve always loved games and I respect it as an art form, but they seem to bore me now. I don�t like this feeling. Every time I spend fifteen minutes with a game, my mind wanders to other things. It�s a chore to finish a level! Zach, this never happen before, I don�t want to lose the medium that�s been with me since I was a child. Zach, no, I don�t want to play Bulletstorm! Zach, I can�t even play my favorite games anymore! What is that? Try ipod games? Zack, I have an ipod touch and I barely use it. Yes, you heard me - I use my ipod touch exclusively for music. I have zero apps for it. Zach, this is all going down the shitter�No, I don�t want to be involved in the gaming industry. Jeez, maybe my interests in video games are gone, but can you explain my love for adsorbing every piece of information related to video games�� What the hell did you say? Take that back!... I think you�re right. I may be a casual gamer! OH�MY�GOD

Yes, I�m a "hardcore-casual" gamer. I still love games, but I simply play- the few- that interests me. For example, I can�t wait to play Catherine and The Last Guardian, but those are most likely the only games I will play this year, such a shame, video games � I love you, but you simply can�t keep my interest anymore. Well, most games can�t. To come to think about it, most games I�m exciting to play end up boring me.*Looks at Half-Life 2* Oh gosh, I think I�ll go play outside... Look, Zach, and everyone at Dtoid, I'm not knocking video games, and I hope this is just a phase, but I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in this. Please, share your horror stories on this phenomenon. Let me know I'm not the only man who feels this way.

A Small Thank You

I started a blog at this very site to let some of my feelings out. In some way Destructoid was therapy for me. I write about everything from my mother, past relationships, financial situations, friends, hipsters, school, etc. This is done not for sympathy, but as a way to expresses myself. My financial situation is a mess and I have no idea how I�m going to make a living, but writing and reading some of the response from great users have bought a wealth of positiveness to my life; It really doesn�t have to be anything big, but a simple comment of appreciation is enough to fill my heart with joy. It�s strange writing this, but joining this community has been the best thing I've ever done, well, second best thing; getting laid is pretty cool. What I�m trying to say here is thank you. Thank you for this awesome community. Thank you for reading. Thank you for commenting. Thank you for being awesome.

A big thanks goes to falsenipple for the header!
