Is it normal i get a sense of dread every time i'm about to play a game?
I really enjoy video games, and I have my whole life (I recently turned 30).
The problem is, every time I buy a new game or revisit an old one, I find myself pausing right before I hit Play. I don't know why, but it feels daunting. This didn't used to happen, but now I never feel like I have the time to be playing big, lengthy stories even when I specifically set out time for it and there's nothing else I have to do. Sometimes the feeling wins and I just don't play anything, but end up sitting on my phone or Youtube for hours since there's no reluctance there.
Once I do hit Play, the feeling passes and I'm just having fun. Does this happen to anyone else?
