I'm shocked! I just managed to devote 5 monutes to this discussion. Then what adds insult to what I just said is: I'm adding a post to this complaining about my own issues... sheesh I'm so bored.

Remember you are playing a game for entertainment and the main perpose is to enjoy the experiance. Who cares if you can not beat it on the highest difficulty setting.

SWIFFT

Good point... but I usually play Medium. I'd hate to reduce that, just on the fact that some games remove things that I might want to experience.

Such things do indeed exist. I think it's a sweet thing to do, if remarkably nerdy.

I think we're all nerdy over something... well maybe not to the extent of dressing up...

I meant more like star wars and star trek fans... those who actually dress up... but I'll take in a game too

So does anyone know of a case when a couple gets married as gaming characters? If not I believe this time is near. I think I'd like to get married, as cliche as it sounds, Master Chief. My bride would be Cortana... or with my luck she'd be dressed as one of the Flood Carriers... man this idea turned on me quickly. Anyway, what would your character wedding theme be?

All great points. I never meant to say that I plan on quitting gaming. Far from it. I just noticed that the games I thought I was good at seem to be ramping up the difficulty and kicking my butt and I'm having problems adapting to these changes. I do find that I buy so many games and only devote about an hour per week on all of them and am making very little progress. I'm trying to change this.

Still... Guitar Hero 2 seems to be my poison of choice right now and I can't wait for all the games to come out this fall. Just because I'm not great at certain games doesn't mean I'm not gonna shell out the 60 bucks to play them!

What I'm seeing is that I lack the determination and focus to die more than three times in the same place and keep going. When I hit that magic number its a curse, a sigh, and then I get back up after just sitting down to play and turn it off or put something else in and rinse and repeat. But I did go back and beat a particular part in Resistance that was kicking my butt and got it... as any Insomniac game I had to clear the corridor and just turn the corner and I was done... but agian in true Insomniac fashion it kicked my ass soon after giving me that one bone

There comes a point in a person's life when you know that he is becoming too old to play video games. I hope I haven't reached this point. But when I find that Resistance Fall of Man is irritatingly difficult to play so much so that I don't play it for weeks at a time I wonder: is this my cut off point... should I reduce the difficulty?

At what point do you feel it is time to hang up the 360 and display it as a quaint trophy to what your skills used to be?
