Has a game turned you off from playing a similar game?

Posted on 7/15/2013 by with 6 comments


Have you ever been so burnt out on a game that you don’t want to play that new game that just came out because it reminds you of the game you’re burnt out of?

I used to play so much Day Z that I didn’t want to play anymore zombie games but I really do love zombie games. Today zombie game are finally mainstream with good graphics and everything, I play them to write about but I still don’t get full pleasure out because I’m a bit burnt out on them.

I have had a similar experience with fantasy based RPG’s and the feeling that there all the same, so there was a time when I didn’t want to try and new fantasy RPG’s. Yeah I know they are not even close to be all the same from the class that’s about it.

The games in the elder scrolls series for me are the fantasy game changers, to me these games are what all fantasy developers should base there games against.

I guess the whole point of this article is to see if some else has had this experience like this. Would this be called genre burnout?

You got a lot this when World of Warcraft was the most popular MMO game and people would play it so much and so long that they would have to take a few weeks off now and again.

So I ask you today has one game kept you from playing another game?

    Man, this happens to me all the time. I used to play a ton of 360, but I just started feeling like I was only getting the same shooters over and over again, and I truthfully had just started to hate shooters because I feel like I just turn my XBOX on to shoot a guy in the head, but I still just compare everything to Counter-Strike where every death had a palpable consequence. It’s hard to find a shooter like that any more where the player pool isn’t the same six guys. The same thing happens to me when I compare any Fallout or Elder Scrolls to other RPGs. It’s just a such a high measurement. I look at games on sale and go “meh, you aren’t Counter-Strike” or “you aren’t Fallout/Skyrim”.

    We hear ya, those are good examples. For me Skyrim is the bar and most game companies haven’t reach that point yet.

    OK, I have to intervene in your skyrim convo. I appreciate skyrim from an artistic point of view but I was ruined for most solo player games when I first started playing a strategy/pvp/pve mmo. Nothing like a good mmo to add meta-excitement to your gaming experience. That’s just my POV,. Maybe I am missing something.

    Don’t get me wrong I love both MMORPG’s and Skyrim, but the biggest difference for me is the fact that there is no limit to learning in skyrim like there is most MMO’s as they try to balance out characters.
    Skyrim also has better quests for the most part as well, your average MMO is go kill 10 pigs return, rinse repeat. Where in Skyrim its more of a go off to explore and hopefully you will find this place, then you have to kill the witch in the cave if you find her. Really wish you could play it with your friend though.
    I still love playing both types of game, but that my reasoning just my opinion.

    Thanks for commenting
