Now I only have game sessions that last for about 10+ minutes and only about 3 times per day at most.

My enjoyment in gaming has died out a few months ago and I have only been working for one year(23yo). My friends are still trying to get me back to Valorant and I'm having trouble explaining I have so many other important things that I need to do other than grinding Valorant. I just don't have the time to improve my skill at that game because it requires so many hours and so many of those hours could give me a good coding project for my portfolio which would improve my job prospects. I do enjoy coding but coding all day outside of work is turning me into a robot.

Screw this capitalism society.

Honestly I've always hated any online coop / multiplayer game unless it had a significant single player aspect to it.

Multiplayer games are more like work, they aren't just for enjoyment.

[-] Naomikho 8 points 11 months ago

That's quite true actually. I've had way more enjoyment playing singleplayer games than multiplayer games(unless they are casual coop like Stardew and the like) nowadays.

I still like fps but it requires too much effort.

Single player with cheats is where it's at. Sometimes I like challenge in my games and with some games it's the challenge that gives it flavor, like some wargames. But if it's just a game where you play for some story or it's about building stuff, give me Creative mode.

Also, "cheating" as long as everyone is in on it in multiplayer is fun. Of course trashing public lobbies with aimbots in CoD is just stupid, but playing a coop game like Raft or Payday with a friend and having the option of just turning off some of the difficulty elements so that you can focus on what makes it fun for you is awesome.

I'm a bit iffed by Payday 3 having some super strong anticheat that also kills mods. I'm not big on public lobbies anyways, why can't I just give my money for the developer, get a game and play how I like it? Anticheat for public lobbies makes sense. But please let me turn it off for me and my mate who just want to have fun and are both in on it.

Lol, meanwhile my friends all want to play hard mode on Minecraft so they don't play cheats lmao.

I stopped playing online competitive games a while back, the last ones were overwatch (1) and dota. Now I almost only play solo games and I have a lot of fun. Currently 110+ hours in TOTK and I'm far from done with it. It's a category that's far from dead and there are any flavor that could fit your tastes.

The only online game I keep playing is MK8D because frustration never last long and there's no ELO ranking to be obsessed with. Also Splatoon once in a while.

Competitive games ruin the mood a lot for me. I know it differs from person to person, but as a person who usually takes games seriously it's hard for me not to care about my skill within the game. It took me a pretty long period to stay away from competitive/skill-based gaming(fps and rhythm games) to be able to treat games as a casual thing.

I play val exclusively socially. Grab a couple friends and play a couple spike rushes or swift plays. Just hope on to chat to strangers in VC basically.

[-] Naomikho 2 points 11 months ago

I have friends who want to play comp so that's part of the reason why I stopped 🥹
