More money/games does not equal happiness Remember back in the days every new release feels like a must-play, firing up games eager to get started. But don't have enough money to buy the latest games/hardware to experience them properly. These days, I only get about an hour each night to myself. I do my best to try new things instead of replay/rewatch stuff. But the "effort" of starting a new game feels like too much for me. A lot of the days in between games I just end up watching stuff. I think OP's suggestion to do something productive, like a new skill is actually better than trying to get back into gaming. Something I really should be doing.
