No, not that kind of burnout. Creator’s block is for the weak. I’m talking about being burned out on a game.
Warframe is a whirlwind romance in game form. You discover it, fall in love, waste a chunk of your life, then just stare at it wondering “what the shit was I thinking?”
Oh, the game still plays, looks, and sounds incredible. The movement is like poetry. The weapons roar satisfyingly as you blow chunks off things. You are a space ninja. And it’s free!
So what’s the problem?
The problem is that after getting to a certain point, there’s nothing more to do. So you’ve discovered what you really are, played around with that, then entered the endgame. That’s it. Go and do the daily Sorties, which are nothing but more difficult versions of the stuff you’ve already done. Boring and tedious, especially after all it took to get there.
So it’s basically the same as real life. Hehahahahahahahhah.
I’m not someone with a lot of patience. Isn’t a game supposed to be fun? Doing the same thing over and over again is only fun to people with a certain disorder I won’t name because that would be offensive. And I’m all about being family friendly and wholesome.
Anyway, I predict I will gradually be winding down my consumption of Warframe, which is a shame because it’s such an incredible, unique product. But I want to enjoy stuff, not spend my leisure time swearing at the screen and doing the exact same thing over and over again.
If I want to get angry, I can work.
