Am I getting old or what???

Postby SodaThal » Thu Mar 23, 2017 2:34 pm

When Destiny came out I played in the morning before work and when I got home from work. Now it seems tough just to log on and play. I don't know what's going on now but then I only got four to six hours of sleep a day and functioned without default. Now I'm sleeping at least eight hours a day, not playing as much and seem to be more tired.... ;-(
Has anyone else experienced this lul in gaming?

I've experienced lulls before in my gaming...Usually due to burnout and/or warmer months with longer days (outside activities).

Maybe you're not getting quality REM sleep? Has anything changed in your lifestyle, diet, etc? I'm not a doctor but I've stayed at Holiday Inn Express' before 8-)

I'm no doctor but I think it's a good idea to figure out why you need several hours more sleep a day than before.
Are you under more stress?
Are you doing more physical work or exercise?
You might want to get a complete physical exam by a physician.

Did you recently lose a digit and have to have another digit transferred from the other half of your body to make up for said lost digit?

My gaming time, daily, may have gotten shorter, but I still play every day, & get something out of it even if I only play for 40 minutes!
That's why it's important to own a variety of games that cater to different schedules!
Titanfall 2 is the perfect game when you've got an hour or less to play!
I can get in several games and feel like I did something!

Try a more casual game! Destiny... In order to be good at Destiny, to me take actual emotional effort. I know it sounds crazy, but for some reason that game makes you try hard. I'd advise playing a different game. I've taken about 2 months off of Destiny, and personally I'd recommend BF1. Not trying to be insulting, but to me its a lot more casual, its easier to put down, its easier to do things that make you feel like you are doing a good job. On top of reducing your life stress, reduce your gaming stress could be a factor.

Soda, not trying to make a joke but have you had your testosterone levels checked? As you get older they decrease and a lower level can lead to feeling tired and less "with it"

Thanks for the input guys! I'll make an appointment to see my regular doc and see if everything is still kosher. I am still healing from injuries and trying to regain strenght, 1hr on the treadmill using a HRM and my yoga crap to keep my back in par.

Can't help you with the sleep thing, but as a guy in his mid forties, I can tell things are changing. It hasn't changed my sleep, but could certainly see how it would effect a fellow.
Curious to know, cause I'm sure that's just around the corner for me as well. haha

Yes you are not alone. Also you got your damned hand blown off.

So that had to slow you down.

Seems like I never have the time to game. When I do, I'd rather be doing other things around the house.

As far as being tired. Yup. About midday... it's nap-time. Can't explain why. It just is.

Its not the years, its the miles!

I refuse to get old.

When I turn 90, I'm gonna do a pound of blow.
