    ive had a very good lazy sunday but all ive done is watch (shite) telly and piss about on the laptop, i got up at 9 so thats 4 hours of videogaming time i couldve had. trouble is games require some sort of mental input, but when i start playing them i actively enjoy it, its just that the initial thought of having to switch everything on and then engage my brain seems exhausting.

    anyone else suffer from this?

    No, I have to work on Sunday, so consider yourself a lucky bastard ;)

    I do this. I also spend more time clicking refresh on here than gaming- or anything for that matter.

    Unless I'm playing multiplayer, then I'm the same.

    I often think .. "oow, I'll play an hour or two later on. Then piss about on the internet and just aimlessly surf about until it's too late to start a game".
    So yeah. Sounds familiar.

    And yes, this attitude to gaming comes and goes for me all the time. Although, I started Uncharted yesterday and it's seriously fucking awesome, so I can't wait to get back on it.

    I only play certain types of games when I feel like that. Noby noby boy is a good example as you don't have any objectives... you just mess around.

    \o/ Great idea, after all I've been at work since 12.45h, result so far: 5 visitors, I could easily have leveled my characters in Disgaea in that time :)

    I feel that way quite often. I have so much choice and i'm often left just bored and with no energy to bother playing anything.

    Speak the truth hussy!

    See, I had the good sense to not slouch out of bed until about quarter to eleven, which meant I was raring to go, and have had a productive day of gaming joy. Even if I do nothing else today I have 280 more gamerscore than I had when I woke up.

    I do get it sometimes, where I just cba to play any of my games.

    So I go and do something else.

    Halo 3 online usually perks me up, however.

    Play Dreamfall and you will be able to switch off your brain entirely, FOREVER.

    hence posting the topic!
    i get it with other things, like cleaning up or going to the gym, the thought of it is horrible but when you get going you actually enjoy it.

    Yeah, I do that sometimes too. I've wanted to play a game, but then couldn't be bothered to turn it on and instead just sat here refreshing EG. How depressing..
  • Deleted user 1 March 2009 21:16:40
    Hmm. I spend more time watching films/movies and justin.tv than I do playing games. Games seem like too much of a hassle at the mo. I have to kinda fire myself up (which aint easy tbh) to play a game these days.

    I get round this by playing everything in windowed mode, means I can just pop in out of the game and feels like a lot less effort then. Gaming while surfing.
