I just grew up.

Used to be a gamer since like 9 years old when my friends introduced  me to pc games and mmorpg's.

We played this one game for like 4-6 years and i was addicted to it.Then played some COD 2 since i had old PC and couldnt play anything else.

Then finished school,worked my ass,and at age of 19,i bought a real pc.I mean 9700k,980ti,ultrawide 35' 1440p and boy the addiction started again.Slept about 4-5 hours a day and worked and played for about 6 months.

Got in financial problems,i got burnout from games,sold the pc and that was it with pc.

I tryed to get into gaming couple of times,PS4,XBX and now xbox series S but i dont know i just grew up,i have a kid and i dont even play it anymore.

Sometimes i want a new pc for gaming,but its more like a want thing and not a need thing.

(P.S if someone doesnt know hot to save money,before you buy something ask yourself,do i need it or do i want it,i save a lot of money not buying stuff).

Well, I need a powerful workstation as I do game development, AI development, and research that is heavily FP oriented.  XD  As for my focused major, Asian studies, yes because I'm going to be an anthropologist, focusing on the Japanese, gaming is kinda required.

This isn't really the thread to ask. Make a topic in the new builds and planning section and most likely people will be happy to offer advice: https://linustechtips.com/forum/18-new-builds-and-planning/

Funny how the adage turned out to be true. As a kid you have all the time in the world but no money, as an adult you finally have the money but no time. Regarding the saving if you don't know how to save I'd say first learn that. I like to think about the need/want problem more as a afford/justify problem. Otherwise you deny yourself everything and you teach yourself that it's wrong to want something. Instead, do the math to see if you can afford it. It's much harder to justify spending 90% of your life savings on a gaming PC vs on a car that supports your job and family for example (and of course if a purchase gets you in financial trouble try not to do it at all).

I just don't find it that interesting anymore, I've got better things to do now. Gaming feels like such a waste of time to me. I'd much rather work on some DIY project or go for a ride on my bike.

 

When I spend time at my computer in the evening I'm usually a bit exhausted and I can't bring up the mental effort to concentrate on a game, so in that case I prefer to just watch youtube videos.

It also sometimes feels like there are just less interesting games nowadays, but I guess that's just because my tastes have refined and become more specific and there isn't really this huge bucket list of games waiting to be played as they're all instantly accessible once they launch.

I could afford to buy a number of things i want but as you said justify/need is different.

I want a smart watch to track my HR,and steps,but do i need it well no.I would wear it at home and gym but i cant wear it at work since i will probably break it.

I want apple earpods but again i would want them but i dont neccesery need them,since i survived 25 years without them(used earphones when i was in school but even that was at minimum),and even cheaper non apple ones are the same.(lets not start apple vs something disscussion here).

I want a new 4 monitor but i dont need it.

I grew up in poor familiy where i didnt have many things,and after i moved country started making hips of money my spending habit got overblown.We are talking going from spending 10 euros for going out,up to 300 euros spending in night in a club.

Instead buying cheapest keyboard and using it until it break to 200 euro keyboard,buying a 600 euro monitor etc.

To put in context,my father made 1.4k a month,and after you pay bills/food/loans not much was left.

I bought all these things since i wanted to feel how is to buy those things.

Thank god  i am now more mature,married,have a son so i am slowly fixing myself.I found that i enjoy buying stuff for my wife and my son more then i like to buy it for my self.

No going out,no buying stuff,but when i buy something now i am more gratefull and satisfied,and learned that i dont need these things.

I bought some books about saving and they are helping a lot.

I mean I can understand, but the situation you describe is exactly what shaped my view on this and why I feel the "need it vs want it" isn't the right way to look at it. There's nothing wrong with buying something because you want it. Generally good things are more expensive, but instead of buying the cheapest keyboard that'll probably break in 2 years, invest in that good €200 keyboard that'll last a decade, indulge in that €600 display that'll serve you many years. One good thing satisfies me much longer than going through a handful of shitty versions. Smartwatches also don't really break that easily in my experience, unless you do construction or something where it's particularly at risk maybe. Disproportionate spending habits aren't uncommon after a significant change in wealth. It's just something you'll have to learn to deal with.

Still gaming on my very old Dell laptop (with Bluestacks 5). I now have 3 accounts on Clash of Clans: 2 go back to 2016 and 1 I just started the other day.

When disability goes thru, I will have a new desktop machine built, and will start customising the operating system again, to make it much faster for gaming.

 

MROTF seems to be Stable....What's up with that? Time to call in the COLONEL!

I do have a question:

When will the name of the thread actually reflect what we are talking about?

Its was more an impulsive and not generally smart decision at that time to buy those things.If you are 100% sure that you want to game and what not,then i agree its better to invest in better quality stuff,but if you just buy someothing like i did just because of sake of it,to have it,it  isnt right decision.

I work in lumber industry,i work in a factory and often while repairing same things,you need to do in in small places so you often hit your hands around while screwing things.And i had often happen that a piece of lumber falls on my hands,its a smaller pieces and generally dont do much damage but still hurts,but i  wouldnt want my 300-500 euros watch to break like that.

I somewhat have, yet not at the same time.

I hardly ever play any games these days. But when I do, it's still on PC.

Spoiler

 

The last time I played something, was on June 27, for a few minutes of Dying Light just to see if I remembered how to play it and whether or not it was worth buying the DLC for it... I didn't and it wasn't.
Before that, it was in May, bought and played the Master Chief collection with a friend. We finished it the stories on Normal and that was it.

Played a bit of Stardew Valley in April.... Terraria in October of 2020... FF15 in April of 2020...

 

Basically, I can go weeks, months, without playing a single game. Is this the same as "having moved on" ? I don't know. There's just no games that interest me anymore. I feel like I've become what I hated most, a filthy casual who only use their computers for videos, reading and socializing on forums like here. I actually wasted 5 hours of my time, in a single day, on Tiktok of all things two weeks ago after finally caving in and installing the app and I felt sick with myself... Then I went back to checking other tiktok videos.

I don't play new shit on PC anymore because even before the ridiculous gpu price hikes from ether mining it was still pretty poor value compared to the current gen consoles at $500. I have pretty much gone back and forth between console and PC for decades though. In the early to mid 80s DOS was better than Atari, early 90s went with SNES, by the mid to late 90s went back to DOS/Windows because its shooters were so much better than what was on console, stuck with PC in the early 2000s because the GTA games looked so much better on it than PS2. Jumped to XBox 360 in the mid 2000s because it offered so much value vs PC, especially after my PC I built a couple of years before at the tail end of the single core era aged like milk. Jumped back on PC in 2014 because the GTX 970 made PC price to performance awesome again, but the gpu price creep since then has turned me off towards building another gaming PC any time soon.

I'm honestly starting to shift away from it. A lot of it (more than I care to admit, honestly) just has to do with the fact that I'm an achievement whore and like having as many of my games on the ol' Xbox as possible. But as time has gone on I've just started to get moderately sick of how PCs can be a bit retarded (the other month I made a drive which was in an external enclosure become internal and Windows dicked up the other drive with a solid 1.2TB of games on it). I'm still gonna keep the PC around for PC-only games as well as things that make more sense on it (like Insurgency or GTA V) AND the Xbox crossplay/crossbuy games, but outside of that... I'm really questioning my planned next build and if I really wanna go with an xx80 class card now.

Both myself and my wife are still gamers.  I don't have much time for it, but when I get the chance I do sit and play.  We both pretty much gave up MMORPG stuff due to time constraints.  I tend to play single player RPGs andy wife loves her VR stuff.  We do have every console going back to the Atari 2600  and still play those on and old projection screen tv.

I simply lost interest. 

Mind you, I was never a monster gamer anyway, and as of late, played only Armoured Warfare and Minecraft, both of which I'm just over. I've done what I wanted to do in those games, and they no longer hold much appeal for me.

 

So, off to do other things.

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

I sold my ps4 and moved from console gaming to pc, so i guess no? 

And i get why someone would lose interest in gaming but i played all my life - with some occasional breaks here and there - and i specifically moved to pc for modding and emulation… so if anything  that sparked my interest, theres so much u can do with mods, "Doom guy in Monster Hunter" for example  (and yes, you have to hunt him lol) and while i have zero talent for "coding" i could see me making mods occasionally, i actually made a few already, somehow!

 

But yeah, "traditional" gaming bores me to death, i have a very specific taste, and thankfully those games are still made (not even a specific genre tbh, it can be any genre as long the game style is there)

I gave up waiting for HL3. Instead some BsGo came out. Sorry I mean CsGo. Lol my bad... 

 

Have been into mostly competitive overclocking and extreme cooling modifications. 

 

Some F@H threw the years on various teams as well.

 

But hey, as long as we all compute in some way, we are all techies!!

But thats kinda curious, why this specific kind of games? (looks like fps shooters, and Valve?) have you never tried another type of game, hack and slash (so called "3rd person  action games" ala Devil May Cry, not musou) fighting games (tbh those hooked me for a long time, still playing, since Tekken 1 basically, actually Battle Arena Toshinden…) Tomb Raider games (new and old)  or more obscure stuff like Va11hallA, which is absolutely incredible , considering the genre… etc, I guess? Really just curious, because these shooter type games seem like a one way street, play em for a few years and what then, theres no progression (literally, see Doom) 

 

I played James Bond on N64, thats all fps shooters would ever need to be, cannot be topped = )

Honorable mention: the very first Medal Of Honor, incredible game… 

 

PS: i get that overclocking is fun, but if I did that* i would like to see the results in action too, like car tuning (those guys *do* drive their cars, sometimes, nay?)

 

*actually thats what i do, overclock my stuff for a day or so and then play for weeks on end 😄

I cant really vote yes or no.

 

I cant say i've moved on because i still want to game. The problem is for over 10 years now i've found myself unable to really find many games that pull me in like the games of old did, and over the years i've concluded its simply down to the shift in the average game design and genre.


If interested in more specifics, read on.

Spoiler

 

One major thing outside of the actual game itself that immediately puts me of from a game is paid DLC and MTX, if a game has to much DLC and to high a price for to small an addition, or has any sizable MTX shop , i wont touch it. Multiple reasons why but not least of which is principals.

 

So some examples.

 

  • The Surge 2 - Great game series , love the gameplay, but the DLC is to small, there are to many, and they cost to much. I wont get the game.
  • Path of Exile - a F2P game that i'd love to put some money into, but the MTX store is the reason behind Stash limits and limits on effective ingame trading. The cost of opening up the stash to a comfortable amount along with its trading features is more than a AAA games full MSRP. The fact that stash is pay walled despite a huge cosmetics section in the MTX shop immediately puts me of from putting any money into the game and thus with the limits that puts on the F2P experience, i dont play it.
  • Warframe - I actually enjoyed the game when i 1st tried it out, but the further i got into the game the more and more Time Gates started popping up with the only way to avoid them was to use premium currency, currency that while tradable in game, requires said currency to make said currency (in game trading, playing the market etc). it became clearer and clearer that the gameplay was designed around the monetization model instead of the other way around. Eventually it became to much of an issue and I never got to fully enjoy the game.

 

As for game design, 1 of many other smaller nuanced issues that result in me finding fewer games that i like is the implementation of so called 'achievements'. Half are nothing more than check points of game progression (which are ignorable ofc), the other half amount to nothing more than time sinks to pad out game time. This instead of actual content being put into a game.

 

Another issues, Fluff over content. and quantity of fluff over quality of content. pritty self explanatory, its a problem i see a lot and another reason i find it difficult to find good games.

 

 

Anyway, the result is, i have not considered myself a 'gamer' for many years now, i simply dont play enough different games every year in comparison to when i did consider myself a gamer ('dozens' as opposed to 'a few').

Then again, my definition for 'gamer' seems to to at odds with the average joes definition which seems to be "someone who plays a game(s) during his/her spare time". Mine is more like " a person who plays many different games over the course of a year, during his/her spare time" which precludes a lot of dedicated streamers and youtubers which isnt a popular definition, but a more 'old school' one i suppose.

 

I am however enthusiastic about PC tech and displays, and I only use my PC for web browsing and playing games, so i cant say i've moved on.

I'm old enough to have played on consoles people only read about.

 

Valve was a big thing HL1 and 2 Cs and CSS where the biggest competitive games out there.

Have played many triple A titles and have always had a decent gaming system.

 

Now .... that I have kids from 9yrs to 20yrs old, they do most of the gaming. It's their time now. Mine has passed. 

 

Gaming passion can wear off. Just like with any other hobby.

 

People's tastes change as age comes along. When you're a kid, you like ketchup. Now as an adult, you may enjoy mustard more.... as an example.

 

Still like PC food myself, just more on the hardware modification side. That change happened probably 15 years ago or better.

 

Some of my favorite games in the past where more strategy based I guess. C&C, SupCom, spell force ect ect. 

 

Yes Mark, I've played more games then I can shake a stick at. Pong Atari Nintendo, had a game gear.  Ps1 2 3 4 5 6. Xbox 1 2 3 4 5 6 ect ect lol. 

 

Honestly, I think I have more hours in gaming over PC overclocking and hardware modding.

Ah, ok yeah, i see and thats what i said i can understand people losing interest, for many reasons… for me its always like phases, without a specific time frame apparently , but yeah, i was always into computers, i just never really had enough money to build one until couple of years ago, so yeah that is fun too, i learn a lot about stuff i already kinda knew, but actually doing it is a whole other story obviously. 

 

And yeah true, i dont really like lots of sweet stuff anymore, like they really put too much sugar in them, like way too much, but as a kid i thought  it has to be like that lol…

 

 

I mean… re: gaming, currently i feel i dont play enough, most of the time im doing "modding"… huge time waster haha, but its also fun and i feel the more games im modding the more i learn, they all seem to work more or less different, sometimes even between games on the same engine  🤔

Ah i see, i see,  yeah tastes differ of course, actually that didnt change much for me either, SF, Tekken, etc as a kid and I still enjoy those types of games, doesn't have to be a fighter, but ends up being a quirky usually japanese "action game" ala Nier Automata anyway.

Not yet but I plan to move to mostly gaming on a Switch next year. 
 

I won’t leave PC gaming totally but it will likely phase out while I do lots of stuff on the Switch that I have always wanted to do.

I work in lumber industry,i work in a factory and often while repairing same things,you need to do in in small places so you often hit your hands around while screwing things.And i had often happen that a piece of lumber falls on my hands,its a smaller pieces and generally dont do much damage but still hurts,but i  wouldnt want my 300-500 euros watch to break like that.

Ah yeah, wouldn't wear an expensive watch in those conditions. Or any watch/jewelry really.

I’m not gaming a lot the past few years. The most recent games I’d picked up are Spyro Reignited, Final Fantasy XII Zodiac Age, and Life is Strange, so nothing especially new. And even then, I hadn’t fired up a game at all during the weekday. 
 

I also like Stardew Valley on my iPhone, but am waiting for it’s newest update. 
 

For someone that doesn’t play often, I feel PC gaming is actually better than console. There’s a huge variety and immense versatility (especially factoring in emulation), it’s easier to manage and carry over long-running saves, and I don’t need to buy hardware that only really plays games. 
 

So my overall playtime is much less, but is focused on older titles and emulation  available for PC. So I’m unsure what to put for the poll. 

My eyes see the past…

My camera lens sees the present…

Just started to get into it the last couple years.

I play a lot of esports, your Fortnite, rocket league, cargo, recently a LOT of valorant, as well as some single player titles, like doom, doom eternal (I play this like once a month, it’s amazing), Shadow/Rise/Tomb Raider.

I play mostly free online fps/3ps games, they can stay pretty fresh, but I usually rotate what I play to keep things fresh, 

 

I do play some games on my wii now and then, plus halo on my xb1x, but it’s all pc for me really, and I can’t say I want to leave right now. (plus someone’s trying to get me to play for their esports team in collage already)

I could use some help with this!

please, pm me if you would like to contribute to my gpu bios database (includes overclocking bios, stock bios, and upgrades to gpus via modding)

*has multiple monitors and a smart tv as one*  I'm watching How I Met Your Mother while I kill bandits as Guts.

I do have a few monitors I could use but then I might miss the target in the game. 

I do have the radio, YT chat, music or audiobooks in the background.

I do this too.

Depending on the game of course. I’m not going to play any music in doom eternal, it’s got great music in game.

I’ll put on a playlist in a single player match in a multiplayer game, like fn or Rocket league, but not in a multi person game like valorant or the team modes of those, single player games it’s game to game if I have something or not

Still as into PC gaming as i've always been. Starting gaming on my Atari 2600 and 80286 PC when I was around 4-5yo back in the 80's. 

 

My games at the moment are BFV, Sea of Thieves and Overwatch. I'm looking foward to BF2042, theres definately no shortage of games to get into these days, especially if you have a group of friends to play with. Yes I loved the old titles on my Atari 2600, MegaDrive, PS1, etc...but thats nostalgia, things have moved on and i've moved with the times and really enjoying modern titles. Im not a fan of competitive FPS on console (COD, BF, Overwatch, etc...) with controllers and aim assist, I prefer to just use my console for RPGs and Racing Games mostly. I just don't enjoy mobile gaming either. If im commuting id rather read something, do some research, watch a video etc....

I haven't really moved on from PC gaming, but I never really got into it much. The only two games I play anymore are Minecraft (very rarely, I haven't had much desire to play it in years) and Forza Horizon 4. Even then I only play FH4 on rare occasions when I get some free time. 

rage craft 4 is coming out...
