Bored of Gaming? Try These 5 Solutions

In the age of 24/7 entertainment, millions of people worldwide are suffering from ‘gaming boredom.’ In other words, video games aren’t hitting the same way they used to. Whether you’re a PlayStation 5 or XBOX Series X guy, you might be able to relate to this. Here’s the good news: you can reignite your gaming passion with these five solutions. Let’s run through them together to see which works best for you.

1. Try Online Casino Table Games

If you’ve ever been to a casino, you’ll know all about the popular table games, such as blackjack and craps. You can now play these casino games online using real money at Essentially, it’s just like playing in a real casino, except you’re playing through your PC or mobile instead. You should find that the involvement of real money helps to add some much-needed excitement to your gaming experience.

2. Switch Consoles

Have you been loyal to the same console producer for over a decade? For instance, you might have been #TeamPlayStation since the early 2000s and have never touched an XBOX console in your life. If so, it might be time to switch consoles. A new controller, games, and user interface will help breathe new life into the situation and eliminate gaming boredom. You might even find that you prefer the new console to the old one you were using. And if you want something entirely different, you could ditch traditional consoles altogether by switching to a PC or a Nintendo Switch. The Nintendo Switch is especially popular across America, Europe, and Asia due to its Pokémon licensing.

3. Play with Friends

Are you always playing solo modes on your favorite games? This might be the main reason why you’ve become bored of gaming. Although playing solo can be fun – especially on games like Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 – it can quickly become stale. The best way to switch things up is by playing online with your friends. There’s no greater feeling in the world than teaming up as a squad and having a hilarious time in the party chat. Or, if none of your friends are online, you can join random lobbies to team up with other players worldwide. Gaming is more fun in groups: that’s a fact!

4. Create a Gaming Schedule

You may have become bored of gaming because you play too often. For example, you might play your favorite RPG games every morning and every night without stopping. If so, a good solution is to create a gaming schedule for yourself. Many people customize their schedules so they only play video games during evenings and weekends. Give it a try – you might find that it helps!

5. Test Out Different Genres

The gaming world is so large it’s impossible to put it into words.

Within this magical world, there are endless genres to choose from, including:

  • Puzzle
  • RPG
  • First-person shooter
  • Battle Royale
  • Adventure
  • Horror

That’s barely scratching the surface, though, as there are plenty of other genres to choose from. In each decade of gaming, new genres emerge, offering something completely fresh and different from the previous genres that came before them.

Sometimes, gamers make the mistake of only playing games from one specific genre. For example, they might only play first-person shooter games such as those from the Call of Duty and Battlefield franchises. Although there’s nothing wrong with this, it can seriously limit your gaming experience, especially when you consider how many other amazing genres are out there waiting for you to try. Often, when people finally try a new gaming genre, they experience a sudden rush of excitement that has been missing from them for a while.

Right now, battle royale games are the most popular genre. There are many to choose from, including Warzone 2.0, PUBG, Fortnite, and Apex Legends. If this is a genre you’ve never tried, give it a shot – you won’t regret it.

Alternatively, you might want to start testing your brain more by playing interactive puzzle games on mobile, like the insanely popular Tetris Beat.


At some point in time, every gamer goes through a boredom patch. However, you can quickly bring your boredom patch to an end by trying the five solutions discussed above. Not all of them may work for you, but at least one of them will. Happy gaming!
