I get the strong feeling that you have been told or you think games are strictly for children?
AAWWW poor you lol
Newsflash games are for adults aswell. If you don't belive me then go be an alcoholic like a real mature adult does when he comes home from work..But you cannot play drinking games adults don't play children games
22, and I am feeling this a bit as well. Though, I think I'm just burned out on games in general. And I'll probably be back on them in full force after a little break.
Maybe theres other stuff going on in your life causing you to feel restless and distracted, I have to move house in a few days im trying to pack in 25c heat, its horible, im covered in sweat, i'd love to wrap myself up in Civ 5, Skyrim, WoW and countless others.
Would you say your looking for something more stimulating, like a thrill seeker whose tired of mountain biking and goes on to base jumping or something?
Maybe its your character (not your wow one lol). Some things to think on.
deeper you must go. there's no reason to stick with a game. get more games. i have hundreds of steam games and a lot of them are unplayed, but one day i'll load one up and beat it from top to bottom. at the moment i cycle between three MMO's, diablo 3, various betas, and deus ex.
Im 21 and I dont think that Im out growing video games, instead Im sort of getting used to them and not getting that 'epic' feeling anymore, still having fun though, but getting bored faster.
I remember when I first started WoW, it felt so epic, and I couldn't sleep, because I just wanted morning to come so I could play more, same thing with Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, I had not played a game like that before and it just blew my mind, same sort of thing happened with CS 1.6 back before I tried WoW.
Nowadays.. with Skyrim, ME3 and WoW I dont get so excited about them, Im having fun, but nothing like I used to, these days I also get bored a lot faster if Im not playing with friends.

agreed with the above posters, I still got my nes/snes hooked up lol
I think I'm lucky I had a cool old aunt and uncle when I was growing up who played a lot of video games. Because of them I don't think of video games as a childish pastime, at least no more than any other entertainment like sports or movies or books.
i'm 21 and i have quickly outgrow games all my life :S i get very bored easily but it's easily solved by rotating games...for example in the past 2 weeks i have playes sins of a solar empire, champions online, skyrim, horizons and star sonata :S So when the dull moment sets in i change games meaning i'm always enjoying myself :S
As you get older, other interests take over. Doesn't mean that games go away, but for some they aren't as important or fun as they use to be.
I think I've actually grown back into gaming. I'm starting to appreciate modern games much, much more than I did before. It's just in a slightly different way.
I understand you OP. I am 24 but I feel the same. I don't want to feel this way but I just do. I remember getting NES/SNES and N64.....was just superexciting, playing old PC games in the 90s....so awesome.
Playing MMO for the first time was just crazy, even WoW...felt so huge and amazing. Nowdays it feels so tiny and insignificant. MMOs just plain out put me to sleep these days, where as before I could play them non-stop.
I use to enjoy ALL my gaming....but now I don't enjoy much, it's rare that I find a game I like. Diablo 3 is probably the first game in a long time that I actually really love to play. The vast majority of games these days I feel like im playing more out of habit...and not so much so because I actually enjoy it.
I've been a gamer all my life though, can't see myself ever at a point where im not playing them.
I have more free time these days compared to when I was at school...but I play much less.
Either im growing old, or games are growing crap ( I personally think it's a combination of both )
it's you and your sports avatar
you went from games to sports games
