Playing video games is a great way to have some fun and kill some time. What happens when you shift that form of entertainment from a hobby to work? Over the past 5 years, I’ve been rushing through games all in the name of doing write-ups for Snackbar Games, and while I love both aspects of what that entails, I think it’s ruining the joy of playing video games for me. I’ve got a stack of new and awesome games at home and I can’t bring myself to even turn them on right now. It’s a wholly dis-heartening thing to be experiencing.

I know all things happen in cycles and I am just going through the regular burn out phase, but man it’s hard to get motivated to pop in a game and play enough of it to actually do a proper review without sacrificing all of my integrity and bullshitting through it.

I seriously hope I can get out of this rut soon as I am missing out on some seriously good games right now.
