Can't find anything to play? Nothing really clicking for you right now? It's okay. This sort of thing happens. We're here to help you out of your gaming slump.
Now, there's no sure-fire way to get you back on track when it comes to finding games you'll enjoy. Gaming funks can hit you hard! Some of these tips might work for you, some might not. All are worth a shot, though.
Play Better Games
Why waste your time playing just any old game when you could be playing the best games on your system? Thankfully, we've already selected a collection of games that we think are absolutely worth your time—we call them The Bests, and you should play them if you can.
If this doesn't work, you could always fall back on some of your personal favorites, too—these, more than any other game, are likely to push the right buttons for you.
Play Different Games
Maybe what you need is a palate cleanser. Do you have genres you don't usually touch? Now might be a good time to try them. Or maybe instead of 'better' games, you need to try different games—weirder, non-traditional games. Stuff that isn't afraid to experiment.
That's where indie games come in handy—we highly recommend checking out the indie games we cover, along with staying on top of sites like Indie Statik, Forest Ambassador, Free Indie Games. These are all good resources for non-traditional games that do the sorts of things big triple-A games would never dream of. PC gamers in particular will have an easier time when it comes to trying out different types of games, though systems like the PS4 and Vita are really embracing indie games, too.
Use Your Friends
Friends make everything better—even crappy games can be fun with the help of a good friend. Sure, there are games you should play with your friends, but friends are also good for recommendations of games you should play, too. Ask around, or pay attention to what your friends list seems to be playing.
