I haven't gamed much since I started college either. It doesn't seem like that would have any effect on gaming but somehow it does.

I only have 20 minutes for break but my entire college (high school in the US, i think) timetable leaves me with no lesson before or after break, and lessons are one hour. Lunch is 50 minutes, so it takes me about 20minutes to walk home, i eat something, and walk back again. I really dislike school, i spend as little time there as i possibly can

But when i am home during the week i am not busy at all, i have very little to do in the evenings. I just spend hours cycling through Engadget, Gizmodo, TF, Kotaku, N4G, BBC News and Youtube. And then i go cook some food, maybe watch TV on the rare occasion a good program is on [Top Gear] (However TV just gets crapper and crapper each year, American TV is better than it is over here though, you have much better Dramas )

And then my friends ask me to play games on steam, but i am never in the mood But i am not stressed or anything, i am known by my friends and family as being extremely laid back, i don't really stress about anything. I feel just fine, it's just games, unless it's playing a game Co-op with friends and beer i'm just not interested. I usually rape Team Fortess 2 for 10 hours a day when a new update comes out, but i i've barely touched it since the engineer update.

Maybe it will just take a good new game, i guess i'm excited about Mafia 2, Gran Turismo 5 and FIFA 11.

The same thing has happened to me, but with Xbox 360 games. The only one I'm looking forward to is Halo Reach. And on the PC I pretty much only play TF2. :P

Managed to clock one hour on BC2 and one hour playing CoD: WaW Zombies with a friend last night ! And whilst i perhaps wasn't as drawn in as i used to be i did actually find it an enjoyable experience for the first time in a while.
