Gaming Apathy

I'm a gamer. At least, I've always claimed such. This week alone I've had my first encounters with Bayonetta and Resident Evil 5 (a little late I guess) and bought Blood Bowl in the weekend Steam Sale. I've done my share of expert (and expert/realism) Left 4 Dead 2 campaigns. But if I actually look at the time invested in gaming over the last year or so it's been in steady decline. I think in the last month I average less than three hours a week.

Conversely in the last year I've been much better at finishing games. As I usually get only half way through something before being distracted by something new. Both Mass Effect 2 and Dragon Age were clear runs for me with a combined 160 hours playtime.

So why the apathy now?

I've been thinking about it a lot but I can't really come up with an answer. Now I've written this I'm not really sure what point i was making.
