I have been there and I think I am there right now. I just can't find anything to hold my interest since RDR2.
I think the first time was when I stopped playing online, I used play COD or BF every night for years and before that things like Halo split screen (remember those days when your friends sat next to you?). It took me a while but I went from XBox to PC. I had also started a new relationship so wanted to put time into that.
I've been a hardcore gamer since the 80's so I have seen everything computer games can throw at you, I guess I'm just bored with the same old shite and need something deep to get into. I'm just waiting for the next good rpg. Is there anything new at the moment? Is there actually anything coming out soon? Bethesda's entries are a long way off, who knows whats happening to cyberpunk, it's not looking good for it. There is something by one of the Fallout teams that looks good. I think I'm just bored with mindless violence.
Just to add, I think having a family has changed things, my time is limited (and money)so whereas I used to buy nearly everything and play for 20+ hours a week I am now limited to 2-3max a week, so it really has to be something special.
