I have been quite busy in the past few months. Accepting a part time job as an adjunct college professor has left me with very little, Perezstart – blogging time as well as gaming time. This has caused me to suffer a familiar, but unique issue, “Gamers Block”! If you are not already aware, I am a big RPG/Fantasy fan, playing games like Oblivion and Dragon Age -Origins/Awakening night and day. The key word there is “playing” because I stopped playing for a few months and I just could not get back into the game. I forget where I had to go, who I spoke to and what my objectives were. Yes, I know, there is a game log that one can look at and review, but it was all greek to me, I had no clue!
With so many games, featuring their own unique configuration settings, menus and “rules”, I basically have to re-learn the entire game. This has caused me to not continue the games that I love! I am eagerly waiting for the release of Dragon Age 2 which is due out early next week because it will be a new start. But what about Dragon Age – Awakenings, Oblivion, Fallout 3, Mass Effect 2, Red Dead Redemption? All great games that I have spent many hours on, haven’t completed because of a sever case of Gamers Block!
Has anyone else experienced this? Any remedies, tricks that you can recommend to get over this issue? I just can’t stand leaving great games on my shelf, but starting up again after so long is not fun! Please feel free to comment and let us know if you having similar experiences.
