Thanks for sharing your own thoughts guys.

Because I want to always do something different other than what I'm doing in said moment.

For this specific case, I have come up with lots of ideas over time for lots of domains, but when I wanted to actually put those ideas into use on my own, I couldn't bring myself to reach the finish line and I just ended up throwing away the idea because I lack something that I can't find enough motivation to learn.

Two interests that managed to persist over time would be League of Legends and IT, which I can get really passionate about, mostly because, if I do come up with ideas for one or the other, I can execute them on spot.

IT itself is a promising future, but I just fear that one day it might bore me just like other activites. League is starting to bore me, too.

Starting and finishing an idea are probably the two hardest things you can do, but ive heard when you finish it all you get a nice sense of accomplishment

*cough*cuz League is shit.*cough*
Spoiler:
You know, I felt pretty much the same way during highschool. Everything was too easy for me. (literally never learned how to study, i never needed to, was always satisfied with my 90% average). I was bored the hell out with school and just wasn't motivated to do much else, usually kept to myself, really didn't have people I'd consider friends at the time.

Luckily I ended up exposed to manga (which then led to anime) due to an acquaintance (which thinking back on it, I should thank the guy if i ever see him again). I completely lacked motivation in life/school, but i had an interest. This interest kept me going, and built me up. Eventually I got to NM, and joined the BW clan. This may sound weird, but that online chatroom gradually molded this 13(?) year old me, and helped me open up IRL to some people. These people are freaking great, although few, i'd take this kind of quality over quantity any day.

My first year of university in Software Engineering fucking destroyed me. Since i didn't know how to study, I ended up getting rekt when i didn't quite understand something, and my grades went to trashland. I ended up dropping out of the program, as much as I enjoyed some of those classes, I couldn't handle it, I was burning out. I went and spent my 2nd year in Business, thinking it was going to work out. I was bored out of my mind, this lack of motivation essentially wasted 8k$. I got fucked so hard, and did not know what to do out of my life anymore. I reminded myself of how much I had enjoyed the programming classes in Engineering, and wanted to go back to it, however i didn't have the drive or motivation for such a hardcore program, talked to one of my few friends and decided to change insitutions and go into the program he'd been studying in, as it was one that linked to a very innocent and young self that wanted to make video games as a child. I am now currently in the Game Development at Algonquin College.

I've had motivational issues, and they still lurk. However i've been able to somewhat link everything to my one overpowering interest. I won't do something unless it has something to do with this. Video Games and Japanese Culture have been my drive. Work? If I work this day i can probably buy this figure. Class? If I want to make my game, I need to know how. Take the bus to school (2h)? Whatever, I can use this time to read Manga. etc. I absolutely don't want to waste time on things that won't link to these in the long run. And I still can't motivate myself for these. Though only doing things i've managed to motivate myself for (so Vidya/Anime related. Fuck, other than DOTA I really don't play other non-Anime-like games.) has made these past few months INCREDIBLY enjoyable in this new program. I am freaking HAPPY. Idk if this helps in any way Xero, but thought i'd say a few things. PM me if you want to chat more. If you use google hangouts/facebook and want a reliable way to chat with me (cuz timezone/steam) I'll add you.

I had watched some anime before but my friends in high school got me to really watch anime and I found out that there were a lot of really nice shows out there to watch... Which in retrospect has made me waste so damn much time that I often wonder what I would have done if I hadn't started watching anime ;o

It also led me to 9tails, the prequel to NM which eventually led me to NM and becoming a mod because the chat was a total mess... Being a mod and being exposed to hundreds of thousands people has made me realize that the world is crammed full of fucking idiots and assholes x.x

I was sort of open and friendly before although definitely not a people person, but now I'm way more cynical and far less interested in people...

*Chuckles* Seems were all having an enlightening conversation, huh?

Spoiler:
I too have felt a similar way in the motivational department. At first, I wasted my early years foolishly thinking I could become a game designer. I had the mind for it, creatifity, but lacked the tech knowhow. Now that I am older, and wiser, I decided I would try to be an author, write my own storys and have them published for all to see. I pray that I will have my first book out sometime at an age were I can appreciate the feedback.

But yeah. motivation can be a real bitch sometimes. Someday you think you have it, but most of the time, every little imperfection of your mood can throw you off completely. "I am tired after hanging out with my friend. Do it tomorrow" "Its the weekend, so anime now, then writing" "Ok lets start this...*Thirty minutes later is on internet after finding new series to watch.* I have felt this way several times, either writing original storys, or even writing fanfics, and lately I have been doing more reading than I have using what I learned from several books and transfer that to a serious project.

I have also suffered from major depression, the most when I post a story chapter on Fanfiction.net and anyone hardly reviews it or gives it a decent praise beyond "Cool chapter. Please do more" I am left absolutely fuming after stupid one liners like that and prefer honest to good insight on my work like what I did right, what I did wrong, and learn from the experience.

I feel for you guys when you talk about this sort of stuff and wish it was much easier to be more motivated about those that were passionate about, but sadly its never as easy as anime makes it seem. *Chuckles*

Dude if you happen to have a google account/google hangouts, It would be incredibly easy for me to keep in touch/chat. I really really hate skype, and it's even worse on my phone -_-, but i'm nearly always checking google hangouts.

This goes for anyone on here really, could even make a group a-la skype if we have enough people with accounts.

I guess google's failed attempt at facebook?

The only good thing about it is the instant messaging system, easily my favorite one.

All you need is a google account (gmail, youtube, etc)

It's nice hearing those little stories from all you about how you dealt with your unmotivated nature, or how you compromised in one way or another.

And... sure, we can use hangouts or whatever you want. Google is azen1313

So the topic is still Steam.. maybe some of you have played the previous games of this series, or even this one on consoles.. is it worth its price?
