Hello fellow Nerdarchests, I hope to find you all having a great time. I wanted to address an issue some
of us might have and that is trying to run multiple games durring a week. I recently just started doing this as well as I play in three games a week also. Do any of you have the gaming burnout like me? This is a short article to hopefully give some advice on “To game, or not to game”.
If you find yourself in a situation where you start to feel burnt out there are a few things you can do to still play in those games and not have to leave them.
First, try and talk to the people you are playing with and explain to them whats going on. They would most likley say you can take a break and pick it up at a later date. This is of course the easyest of all the solutions, however there are those enthusiests who won’t wait for anyone reguardless of a situation.
Second, if you have the time. Try and go for a small trip inbetween games to clear your head or simply go on an outing. I find it works well and can be a great escape at least for a short timeand helps clear the cobwebs from your head. A simpe trip to the country or even just a bike ride around the neighborhood can give you a good refreshing jolt you need. (This for you Scott)
Third and last of the tips is more of a personal trick, but try to go to the movies and see a great sci-fi, fantasy or horror movie to get your creative juices flowing. I love movies and find that even though I feel burnt out they make me think of my games allot and give me great ideas. You can also just whip out a big bag of popcorn and turn on NetFlix or pop in a favorite move as well.
Forth and last, try and watch some videos on YouTube about gaming or watch some online live gaming like Critical Roll on Twitch TV. There are so many games out there that you can watch to get your gaming mojo pupmed and get you back into the mood to grind out your favorite hobbie.
Well that’s all I have for you this time. I hope the ideas keep coming and your poasion never dies for gaming! So until next time… Stay Nerdy!
