My girl and I send memes to each other throughout the day via text message; sometimes its to break the everyday boring cycle of work and sometimes its just to bring a laugh to each other. We are both gamers, although she is a console gamer and I am a pc gamer, we can both appreciate a good gamer related meme. Recently she sent me a meme that basically said,
"You know you're a gamer when you have side games that you play to take a break from your main game."
I laughed. I can totally relate... well... I used to relate. This meme got me thinking about how my gaming has evolved or maybe devolved into what it is today. I remember 2 decades ago I would play EQ. That was my main game, by far. I had side games on console or something, but EQ was most definitely my main game and my high school grades showed it, lol.
Now though, I have no main game. I think my last main game was Warhammer Online or Vanguard, both of which were closed down. I think I have been lost ever since, floating around in the abyss of gaming. I have no main game anymore and I just go around from game to game with no solid intention of doing anything overly productive. Maybe a few days playing WoW, another week playing Destiny 2, maybe another few days playing the Division 2, a few days playing Neverwinter, one day playing Maple Story 2, another few days playing Black Desert, and a few days playing EQ. You get the idea. The list of games that I bounce around to are numerous. I feel lost. Nearly all of my gaming friends have wives and kids now and I find it incredibly difficult to find new gaming friends.
Is anyone else like this? Can anyone else relate? I really want a main game, but I also fear I will forever be lost.
