I think that one of the secrets to avoiding the "routine rut" as you age is to constantly be challenging yourself to try new things and get outside of the comfortable bubble you build for yourself. As a nester who likes his routine, this is a difficult thing for me to do but I try to do it nevertheless. In 2014, I made it one of my resolutions to get outside of my comfort zone
as a gamer and continually try new things instead of going down the same-old paths as I always do.
So I'm trying new classes. I'm playing ugly
characters. I am giving crafting, PvP, and even roleplaying a go. I'm diving headfirst into sandboxes
and plucking away at older titles that have eluded my attention for years. Sometimes this is very frustrating and reminds me of why I like what I do, but once in a while I make a pleasant discovery and grow a bit more as a person and as a gamer.
So how have you gotten outside of your gaming comfort zone lately? What have you discovered?
