Lack of Gaming or Lack of Inspiration
Have you ever just had one of those days, weeks, or months? You know, the times where you just simply can’t get inspired to game in any form. Perhaps it’s due to an over active mind or ADD kicking in, but I’m in one of those funks. I just can’t seem to get inspired to play any game.
The last time I think I actually played a role playing game was probably over a month ago. Playing a game that is set in the current day, where the players are actually playing alternative versions of themselves. It’s quite fun, but sadly getting the Thursday night crew together of late has been difficult, and sadly I am often one of those who just can’t seem to get my schedule open to make it…and I’m running the game. It’s been probably over 6 months since we played any DnD 4.0 (because honestly I think the game kind of sucks now…just too generic, too video gamish, too not DnDish). Maybe it’s time to be an old beardy and go back to playing 3.5 again.
Video games, well Age of Conan is fun, but sadly of the usual nightly MMO krew, only two of us are consistent in any sort of way. Dr. Jones is, well distracted and always tired (yeah he sucks). Mr. O is busy (he also sucks) with his business, and we all miss gaming with him, but he needs to feed his family. Leaving only me and Prof. Venatus as consistent players…I’m not saying that’s a bad thing at all, but I tend to level a lot faster than everyone except for Mr. O. Prof. Venatus and I have a lot of fun, but we are both a bit ADD and at the end of the day, you can’t do instances with only 2.
As far as the Xbox goes, well I have had some good times playing Splinter Cell, and now am playing through Arkham Asylum (I am the Batman!). It’s actually quite good, but again…it’s just not a long term game. It will probably only last me another day or so and then I’ll be done with it. Thus the way of the Xbox gaming.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not whining, I’m just saying that at times it’s very difficult to write about gaming when you just aren’t inspired to game. It just seems like there aren’t any decent MMO’s out. Even the biggest MMO on the horizon (Star Wars the Old Republic) looks rather meh to me. The preview vids look AWESOME, but the game play looks kind of well, meh.
Could it be a sign of age?
Could it be a sign of boredom?
Could it be a sign of been there done that syndrome?
Well I suppose it could be all three things or something completely different.
I think the truth is that I just have been very focused on our businesses. Today for instance I spent nearly 8 hours working on websites, 3 hours talking with my real estate partners, and maybe two hours watching tv off and on (World Cup, Tour de France Preview, and now South Park). Huh…yup, I guess that’s it then. I’m working way to hard.
Time to become one with the Darkness.
I am the Batman!
