    ok im not a hardcore gamer but i like to play. ive got GOW 1 and GOW 2. i left GOW 1 becuase i just couldn be botherd due to reasons below.

    Sometimes i just cant be asked to play GOW 2 because it just sort of spookes me out or something else i just cant explain...? does any one else feel like this? if so what do u do to get motivated to start playing?

    i feel like a retard when i start swap magic then have seconds thoughts about playing the game so i turn it off :( lol

    any suggestions?

    You play a game that interests you; as simple as that really. Maybe the God of War games aren't your particular cup of tea? Ever tried playing something like Shadow of the Colossus instead? Maybe you've been tired of gore or greek fiction, who knows. The only suggestion I can really make is play something you know you won't be bored with. I love God of War 1, but I wasn't too happy playing it knowing that it was so short. I'm currently playing imports mainly at the moment: namely Tales of Destiny (remake) and the final mix of Kingdom Hearts 2. And btw, if you like to play games, maybe some variations would be nice. Instead of playing an action adventure game like God of War or Prince of Persia, maybe you should play an FPS game or an RPG. Good luck. I know that feeling, really...

    if you don't feel like playing games, maybe that's your brain telling you that you need to crack open a book, or do some math, or supe-up your car...hell, anything to get away from the TV. ^.~

    *edit*
    touran, could you refrain from using "gay" as a negative term, please? no one sounds good saying it that way, and similar derogatory words are pretty much banned here. *re-edit* not playin' mini-mod, just being a concerned member.

    thank you. ^.^

    i'm not saying give up games, i'm saying just be sure that games aren't your only escape. if you're having second thoughts about playing them, go ride a bike or take a hike or something. party it up with friends. :p

    lol i dont no if your my age or near there but in my society all thats talked about is the newest game and whos at what stage lol.

    in my oppionion im doing very well at keeping away from all the video game nonsense. i dont have a ps3 or 360. just a psp which i use for modding (another escape from school) and the ps2 which is usually played by by ma lil bro.

    party it up with friends. :p

    parting up is have a sleep over infront of a wide screen HD TV playing ps3 360 and ps2 all at the same time in a split screeen!!! lol

    i'm 19, freshman in college.

    at 15, i didn't have anything but a fried atari, a busted gameboy, and a ps2. *big grin* that was the summer i moved; i spent most of my free time writing poetry, clearing dead trees in the woods by my house, and racing a mildy-tuned lawn tractor. ah, those were the days.

    if you're in the city, i say get into free-running. if you get good, that stuff is crazy.

    you're about at that age to go car shopping. cars are something us young males take great pride in, and your will quickly suck up all your time!

    free-running as in getting out and running through the city, performing acrobatic feats, not playing on the console! XD

    no car, eh? well, you'll have to wait a bit. it's the UK! there's always fun stuff to do!

    oh lol free runnig is a game so thats what i thought u ment lol...

    ALso the uk isnt the best place, that was just a stero typical answer influenced by the media telling the globe how succefull this country.

    Well in my oppionion is crap. The UK has been voted the worst place to grow up what with all the gang violence here. but u would think a rating as extreme as that for a globably known/succesfully country would be globably publasised but no. instead they hushed up.. pffft. thats why people like u (no offence but seeing as your the only example i can relate to :D) will still think its a good country. lol

    Kingdom Hearts is considered childish by many. One reason is simply because of the Disney characters presented in them. It isn't so bad because I believe the story, especially with the recently released KH2:FM+ in Japan, the story can be quite suitable for children and adults to share. Plus, it has that epic philosophical feel to it. Locke anyone?

    About spooky, well, KH isn't like I've already said. And about FPS, I meant First-Person-Shooter games. If you want an interesting game with violence and such, I heard Resident Evil 4 was good. And by Runescape, that's mainly an MMO, ain't it? I forgot.

    Anyway, whatever you choose, try checking out numerous gaming sites like IGN.com or gamespot.com for reference on what games are out there and what you might be interested in; although, I don't think you should take their critiques too seriously since it's really up to you to decide if it interests you. Just use it as another voice in deciding.
