GamesByRich.com: Classic Games Redefined blog

This is the blog formally known as Docreason's Designer HQ (the rest TBD). It focuses the thoughts of the design process of Rich Hutnik and other things Rich, gaming related (pretty much), finds interesting. The change in name reflects a bit of a change in focus and branding.

It's ok to not to want to play games... sometimes.

What I will see from time to time, in posts on forums like on here, and other game areas, people expressing a bit of the blahs. They say they just aren't in mood to play a game at this time. Part of the posting will be pondering if something is wrong.

Well, I am saying there isn't anything wrong. You can face a situation where you have other things on your mind far more pressing in life. Also, you can face the law of diminishing returns:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diminishing_returns

According to economic laws, what is normal, when not in an addicted state, is the more you do something, the less and less you get out of it. So, you can end up playing and buying a bunch of deck-building or worker placement games, and then you ponder whether you need another. Or you can just end up playing LOTS AND LOTS of games, or say your job involves games, and you just need a break.

So, in light of maybe more pressing matters, or excess playing of games, you may get burnt out. So, if you feel this way, it is normal and ok. Go for a walk or something. Mix it up some. Take a break from what you use to take a break sometime.

Thank you again for taking your time to read this.

And I will close with some MC Lars, with MC Frontalot, that gets into this (any place I can drop some MC Frontalot is a good place):
