An interesting question, I was just trying to figure this out last night. This might just be my particular situation, but my habits have changed in ways I didn’t anticipate. I am actually finding games in general to be more tiring, and I’m playing them less in general during this time. I think it might be because I was giving more games a try right before this and came off playing through three Yakuza games almost back to back. Then I got into FFVII Remake and didn’t like it… now I’m finishing up bloodstained, so I guess I’m trucking right along, but the idea of starting anything that’s long but also unfamiliar feels more daunting than ever?
So it’s almost like I’m going the opposite way as you. I also was spending more time getting into my back catalog of older games, but I’m finding that intimidating right now too. I think my energy level has gotten so low that I’d rather just watch a movie right now and not have to do anything. That sounds pretty dismal when I write it out that way! But yeah, I’ve found taking on new/large games to be more intimidating, simply because I’m not relaxed enough to deal with the time commitment!?
It doesn’t really make sense but there it is. Quite curious how others are dealing with this as well.
