I've gone through many periods of time during which I've seriously considered quitting for good. I always expected that I'd get tired of it, but that still hasn't happened (with the exception of a few styles of gaming - grind-heavy fantasy MMOs, almost all pen-and-paper RPGs, etc.) The reduced amount of time I have to play games, friends moving away for jobs or grad school, and a general sense of disappointment with current trends in gaming have allowed me to enjoy my gaming in greater moderation than in the past. It's such a relief to not want to game all the damn time.

I don't play much anymore. the last year I've probably played a handful of games a dozen hours or so each if that. No time or money for it. I own (well my bro owns) one console the ps3 and then we use our computers a bit also

i think today's gaming culture sucks compared to before. the only games that matter to me now are arcade games and i only go to the arcade a couple times a year.

I dont game anywhere near as much as I used too.I have study and games cost so much now,I can't afford to shell out 60 quid for a game(which seem to be shorter than they were before),especially in this recession.

I have lost so much interest in gaming and I have no idea why.Though I still buy the odd unique or interesting looking game like The last window and I hope to get Silent Hill 8 in future.

Plus theres so much emphasis on online play and its full of irritating people

I tried quitting, took me like 4 years of trolling before I finally quit "one" game..

I think even if I want to quit, I will always come back to it, it has become part of my life, even if I try so hard to not play (uninstall, lend console to friends etc.) in the end, I will always get anything I can since my body longs for it.. It became an obsession for me..

Anyways, I do play 1-2 hours a day , and 16 hours during holidays (xept when I go travel), and I don't think I can quit playing games, cause I just bought a laptop , a gaming one >.>

What exactly do you want us to say to that?
You implied you quit gaming, and mentioned 'fantasy' coming from a site like CR.
there is nothing but 'fantasy' cliche' as it sounds you contradict yourself.

I will never stop 'gaming' (never mentioned what kind either)
it's fills in a gap that I love, and with the wi-fi and online the ps3 and x box-live offers, I can share my fantasy
with other people.

in a competitive way.

it's almost impossible to run out of good games since there are hundreds you haven't seen yet , import games , old games ....

I will only quit gaming when they've become so easy that taking a dump is more of a challenge. Seems to be where the trend is taking us... Just look at WoW; it gets easier and easier as the expansions come out. Games are supposed to get harder as you progress! I just don't get it. I suppose they make a good profit keeping all the tards happy who metaphorically shoved their hands in the garbage disposal when they were 8.

It seems like the only games that can provide a challenge are made by indie developers nowadays... And I suppose they might keep making Ninja Gaiden games.
