So I'm not gaming again except for League of Legends, I was playing Star Wars The Old Republic quite regularly but as of about a month ago I've stopped playing that game. And I think I've figured out why I don't play any games except League of Legends. When I was younger I was still full of life and had a limitless imagination and potential like all children do, also most importantly I wasn't afraid to fail. As I grew older I started setting difficulty from normal to easy in games. This then progressed to me stopping playing games altogether around five years ago. I went on a hiatus of around a year or two and then returned to playing them again, got into Team Fortress 2, basically that and Defense of the Ancients in Warcraft III was all I played for quite a while. Then Audiosurf came out and I got hooked on that. I was back into gaming again and for a time it was well. Then I stopped playing everything shortly after finishing GTA 4 and started playing just Defense of the Ancients. I then underwent a breakdown as I was bipolar and it was going untreated, spent some time at the hospital long story short before returning to my job only to be fired a few weeks later (they were looking for ways to get rid of me because prior to the break down I was acting weird, you guys know sometimes a work place can be like high school) for coming in late like the 3rd time ever. Anywho, moved in with my best friend and quit gaming again. Then I got another more powerful PC and started playing League of Legends, (I've also introduced quite a few people both on HH and off to playing it hehe, alot of them have become even better than me) and now its happened again. I'm not playing any games except League of Legends which as you may or might not know is a Massively Multiplayer Online Battle Arena game just like DotA. Anyway, I think as I said earlier the reason I don't want to play any games any more is because I think subconsciously it is too hard and I'll just end up dying or whatever. Even on the easiest setting there is a certain difficulty to it. And I am the type of gamer that if I'm not winning I don't find it fun and even when I was young I had this thing where I wanted to do things a certain way and if I didn't get it just right or by using too much ammo or losing too much health or whatever then I wasn't satisfied. The only reason I like playing League of Legends is because in League players are matched based on their hidden MMR (Match Making Ranking) and their MMR in Ranked games so you always get players that are on your level. This makes for an enjoyable and balanced game as I am playing with players that are at the same skill level as me, this means that sometimes I win and other times I lose. But at least I can win sometimes and on top of that since in League you get Influence Points (and Experience Points if your account is below level 30) even if you lose, at least you don't just work and not get anything for your work at the end of the game. Plus almost all my close friends play League so it's a good way to hang with them. I feel bad still because I look and see all these new games coming out and you can see the specs of my PC that it can handle anything I throw at it, I feel sad that I can not take part in those games not because I do not have any interest (if I didn't I wouldn't be sad), but because I feel like I'm not good enough to play. I have so many unfinished games on Steam, games people have given me, I've bought and I've won that I just played a little and left to gather dust. I should also mention that I do play racing games, on the console mostly though, but I recently sold my PS3 with all its games and I am just waiting for them to release Gran Turismo 7 on the PS4 then I'll buy a new PS4 or I might even get a PS4 with the new Tekken 7 that's coming out as I like fighting games as well and I like that they're online now, Tekken Revolution was one of my favourite games released last year even though it was free. But buying a console to play two games doesn't make sense to me, as I don't like most of the other games on the PS4 right now, plus I'm not good with a controller in most games apart from racing and fighting games (although I'm sure with a bit of effort and practice I could be). TL DR: I guess it might just be that I'm growing old. Please let me know your thoughts and views! Edit: Plus recently I started stacking silver and that is an expense in and of itself, as any of you who are stacking either gold or silver know or have done so in the past it isn't cheap, I'm doing it mostly for the fun involved in collecting different coins from around the world, there are so many to buy and partly for the investment opportunity investing in precious metals represents. Also I did used to collect stamps and coins as a kid, but collecting coins that are made of precious metals is so much cooler than just collecting plain old coins from around the world and not just because they are valuable. So yeah, I'm starting to branch out in my interests too. Not to mention this takes up some of the cash I could spend on games and all.
