I’ve kind of been in an inactive gaming state for the last few weeks. I’m not sure how or why that happened, but I have been very busy at work and arriving home so exhausted I just want to go to bed. So that’s part of it. And I haven’t even been cruising the web that much, it just seems I’m not having as much fun sitting in front of the computer when I get home as I used to.
The gaming icons try to look as inviting on the desktop as possible, there’s LoTRO’s little gold ring, and EVE’s moniker, along with AO’s stylized “A” and Warhammer’s coat of arms, but nothing really tempts me to click on them. I think about clicking on them, and then think to myself that I’d rather be doing something else. I dunno what else I’d rather be doing, I just know it’s not gaming…
I even tried looking through my piles of games in CD jewel cases and those black DVD boxes, and none of their brightly colored, awesomely illustrated cover art could get much more of a “meh, it was fun, but I’m not up for that right now…” I think I’ve hit that crappy wall where people keep telling themselves that they want something different without knowing how or what they want to be different.
Along those lines, I keep thinking I should take the plunge with Star Trek Online, if just for the new experience. But is it really new? Maybe I’ve become too jaded with all of the various MMO’s I’ve played in the past – so much so that nothing out there will ever capture my imagination the way my first, or even my 2nd and third entry into the MMO gaming space held for me. I hope that’s not the case.
So that means I don’t have any plans, gaming wise, for the weekend. I guess it’s a good thing the Super Bowl is on, but I really don’t give a hoot about either of the teams playing – if one of the teams isn’t from West of the Rockies (CA, AZ, or WA)., it ain’t worth watching as far as I’m concerned.
I hope you’ve got a little more direction and fun lined up for your weekend – Enjoy!
