I'm sure everyone does get in slump every now and then. I'm currently in one where I'm just not in the mood to play. So I've decided to catch up on the Dragonball Super anime. Figured once I get caught up on that, I'd dive back into playing again.

What do or have you done to get out of a gaming slump?
I just usually harass Kaens and then he gets going and then I get going too...

I am trying to get back to some stuff I put off of games I really like. I didn't really get anything that really caught me this Fall.

I do from time to time. I get the girl version of looking in a closet full of clothes, some never worn, and think "I have nothing to wear". I'll look at the list of games and just not be in the mood to play them. Usually it's when I want to play a type of game I don't usually buy, like racing games or something. It usually doesn't last long. There is always something new coming out that surprises me and gets me interested to play. Stardew Valley was one that kinda kicked me out of a slump. And now I'm super excited I'll get achievements for that game coming up soon.
Yup.
I play Pinball FX and crush you peoples' scores. That's my fix. Competitive pinball does wonders for fixing my slumps. It's mostly relaxing. There's no grinding or achievement hunting. Just playing for the pure pleasure of sending someone a message I owned them on another table.


Bonus note, there's the Bethesda pack launching next week with Fallout, Skyrim, and Doom tables. Super hyped for it.

In one now. For about 1 and a half years
Yes, that's why I disappear for months (or years) at a time.
I have to admit I do have mini random moments like I just have no urge to game or I can't focus on a game. Hence why some days I only unlock like one achievement Big Grin

So far I've never been in a gaming slump. I do admit that I don't have a lot of personal time like I used to (no more all night gaming marathons) but I try to squeeze in at least a minimum of 1 hour every night. Anything more than that is gravy. Plus I have a bunch of games that I haven't even opened yet.

I once got out of a slump by challenging some guy to hit 50k before I could hit 100k total gamerscore.

What exactly is the point of this thread?

A gaming slump in general? No, not really.

I just move from one type of gaming to another.
This is a great question, and yes I have. It feels like I used to play for fun spending hours in Fallout or Elder Scrolls wandering but now I seem to be doing mostly achievement hunting. Maybe it's just me getting older but it seems like there was more hours to play games and watch movies/ shows now it's either play or watch and then the days over.

Being able to set goals is great (would also be great addition here) to get me out of a slump and play the 100's of games I haven't started yet, damn those cheap used games.
With my longer work hours, I game maybe one or two days out of the week for maybe a few hours. I mostly watch streaming video during the work week and spend most of my weekend time out with my girlfriend. I just don't spend as much time gaming as I used to.

However, wanting to 100% games to get all the achievements puts a grind on games and they aren't making games easy anymore. You literally have to grind to get some achievements when in reality you just want to move on to something else.

Take Open Season, that game was awful, and I have 260/260 gamerscore in it for 100% completion.
