As the title suggests, how?
For me, things felt gloomy and I just began to play less. Sometimes I'd force myself to play to take my mind off things then 10-15 minutes later either switch the game a couple more times or turn off the system all together. I'd find myself watching more videos or idling away on phone games way longer then I'd like to admit.Sometimes I'd sit inside a shop and watch cars go by for an hour or two then go home. But one day, I guess something struck a chord inside of me and I went hard that week getting back in reliving the sleepless nights of playing a game I got super invested in. Ramped up in trying to get better at fighting games again. I forgot what gave me the motivation to do that one day but I felt....back. Maybe I needed a break but I know that my love for the medium will never die out.
Did you too need a break and a change of scenery for a while too? How long did it take you to get over it? It is burnout or just a matter of taking a break ever once in a while?
