Skyrim burned you out? You aren't doing something right.
My suggestion is to get either Minecraft or Terraria- both seem like kiddie games but are very deep and entertaining. Burn away the hours at a marvelous pace.
Don't even get me started on minecraft, played that game from alpha for probably 8+ monnths non stop, put over 200-300 hours into it, and thats just a modest estimate. I had gone though a few servers with friends, and spent so much time alone in single player you couldn't imagine.
I have built, small little shacks, inside of mountains, that grew to multi roomed, strange structures ontop and into the core of the very world I started on.
that further grew into a giant mining facility, look at the old NG minecraft thread in the games forum, I have pictures of the super pyramid I mined out by hand. thing got to be so big, an entire floor of glowstone wasn't enough to keep monsters from spawning.
On servers I had such a terralythicly massive pyramid, it went from skybox, to bedrock, in a inception style pyramid within it self three times over. Even had a hell theme at the bottom. For me, minecraft is dead. I have seen everything, done everything, and achieved everything I have ever wanted to in that game. Used mods, tried new servers, nothing can reignite the torturous flame that minecraft once burned in my life.
Now as for Terraria, I played that from day one as well, it came out right about the time my minecraft lust really died off, or had been dead for some time. I did just about everything there, Yes I know about the big 1.1 update and there is a bit I still havn't done in that game but sadly I have little drive to play. I am thoroughly disappointed by the "hardmode" they claim to give you after you kill the wall of flesh.
You get 3 reskinned bosses and some tier 3/4 stuff. Cool. Not really challenging once you get a good set of reforged equipment and a little bit of luck.
I know it sounds pessamistic but thats honestly how it is for me right now. Sucks I know.
As for skyrim? I played it nonstop, I have a level forties character with full dragon armor, a daeadric greatsword, and some other stuff. I have done fucktons of quests and acquired just about every word for every shout barring the directly quest area locked ones. Just got the final word for slow time as I did the eye of magnus quest line in the collage of winterhold.
I even started a new character that will do different things.
