OMGeek Podcast 11: Getting Burned Out

Do you remember that time when you could have played a video game -- when you had hours of nothing ahead of you and you could have fired up a game or two and you -- gasp!-- didn't feel like playing? We've all been there, and because we're all grown-ups here, we thought we should address the grim reality that there is, in fact, such a thing as too much of a good thing. In this episode, we talk about getting burned out from video games, speculate on what causes the burnout, share our personal experiences with burnout, and wonder why we always come crawling back in the end anyway. Games discussed What We’re Playing: Saints Row The Third, Clash of Clans (Android), Euro Truck Simulator 2 Stuff in this episode Preventing Gaming Burnout Losing Interest In Games - A Natural Progression?
