Quoted from pninja005:
Yeah; I used to play quite a lot (LOTR days) but since a couple of years just going downwards. I still like to order, enjoy getting the new box, unpack, boot up a first game and then....
so, what changed for you?
I ask because I at times dont play for a bit (mainly during busy summer months) but I always find playing pinball to be very cathartic and enjoyable.
I was getting a bit burnt out and then got into some older games and I enjoyed playing again. I found that I like the challenging shorter ball time games.
I also keep things fresh through doing multiple things in the hobby. I play, restore, collect, route, etc... When I get bored of one aspect I tackle another. It is the multiple dimensions of the hobby that keeps me engaged.
I also have found that meeting new pinball people also makes me enjoy playing more.
