I get that feeling a lot, and it is because i have so many games to play that i am very indecisive. One day i have a blast playing X game, then the next day i am debating whether to continue playing X or try Y game, then there is also Z game whistling trying to get my attention, and so on and so forth.Indecision with games makes me have those feelings the OP described. I usually let my mood determine what game i want to play on a particular day.EDIT: but many times i end up not playing anything for a day or two, and that usually helps make up my mind and tackle a single game all the way to the end. But the whole cycle of indecision repeats quite frequently.

Now Doesn't That Make You Feel All Warm And Fuzzy? :P
I have never been able to explain it so I put it down to me being flighty. I just suddenly don't want to log in at all or touch the game if it is a single player for some unfathomable reason but as someone else pointed out it must a subconscious feeling of unhappiness with some aspect of the game that finally overcomes you.
I hate mobile games never touch them
Please do not respond to me, even if I ask you a question, its rhetorical.

I had this few times and I've never understood how the human brain to just shut down like that about a game.

As an old caterpillar that is still enjoying games with depth that need a learning curve that is very good to hear.
I’ve had this happen a few times as well. I even have days during the week where I think I’m done with a game and lost all interest, only to be really feeling it again the next day. It’s like some kind of gaming bi-polar tendancy. I also get instances where I’m so all in on a game one night and then this feeling of being totally overwhelmed hits me the next day. I start to look at other players and how much they’ve achieved compared to me or how intense the endgame is going to get to keep moving forward and I just burn out realizing how meaningless what I’m achieving is.
I guess plenty of gamers had this feeling, you play a game you really enjoy and have a lot of fun, stay up late then have to log off due to work or school.You turn in to get up to work next day, you think about the game you played last night and you are planing what you are gonna do next.You come home, make dinner, eat, then something happens, It just struck you, you don't have that urge to play that game you had so much fun the nigh before, you see the icon on the desktop, but you don't klick it, you klick on another game and don't play that game you had so much fun the night before for months or ever.It was like a wall that sead NO, I don't want to play you.I had this few times and I've never understood how the human brain to just shut down like that about a game.

I feel you but lets face it, nothing you do in any game ever matters its pretty much literally meaningless xD Honestly i think i sometimes on a subconscious level avoid getting to end game just because i think i will get this depressing feeling of uselessness washed over me when i realise how much time i put into doing something so meaningless.
Gave this more thought as to when, It seems when I stop learning. I tend to study deeply as I'm playing. Infact many games I'll spend as many hours watching Youtubes as playing. When I have done MOST all the cool stuff, that's when it hits. The proof: I can't play any mindless shooters, where you run and gun simply picking up weapons along the way....The learning in the only intriguing part. The story behind the game is of no real interest. One example: Fallout 4 base building, I was obsessed with it. I built this amazing base. Impenetrable building then with all its catwalks and gun turret's. When it was done and realized the attack horde is never really going to come, this is when it hit. I realized the story and quest never really interested me. Joining any faction was all the same, they sent you on mindless fetch quest. MMOs: Playing with others, this keeps me playing. But since their are no mmos where you play with others...their of no interest anymore. Their not even mmos !!
I usually experience that feeling 5 seconds after I change from free trial to subscription.
