Update Your Game Library: Don't let genre burnout get you down!

If you're feeling burned out on your usual genres, why not try something new? There are plenty of amazing games out there, across all genres, that you might be missing out on.

Trying a new genre can open up a whole new world of gaming for you, and who knows... you might just find your new favorite game. So don't be afraid to branch out, and explore all that the world of gaming has to offer!

It's no secret that some gamers are more genre-loyal than others. In fact, many gamers only stick to one genre, and within that genre... they only play certain IPs. No hybrid genre action for these guys!

We've talked to well over 1000 gamers this year so far, and one guy told me recently that he gets bored playing Call of Duty pretty quickly now. I pointed out that there are other games out there, and he says, "Yeah, but what else is there? Like... that's where everyone is". I tried to hold it in, but I was like:

There are plenty of popular games out there that get a lot of love within the same genre (and across genres). I got him though because I presented him with a list of IPs (similar to what you see below) which he acknowledged he was aware of, but... he hasn't played one of them.

It's nothing you have to do, but knowing other games are out there only to deny yourself the pleasure of enjoying them because you (yourself, and the person being reflected in the mirror) choose to only stick to one genre or one IP is a... personal decision. You can see it on the faces of some people that they truly miss a controller being in their hands, so why not fun it up? We can never get any of this time back, so you might as well enjoy as much of it as possible.

Switching things up is the perfect solution to a gamer's funk regarding... genre burnout. Instead of playing the same games over and over again, try out something new to get a break. 

Buy the AAA game you love (no shade), but add a AA game to the mix, show indie developers some love by adding an interesting game to your library from that side as well, and show a free-to-play game some love. 

Free-to-play games don't require money out of the gate (and they're available on console too), but if you like the game, buy something to keep the free-to-play party going.

I can't just leave you with the list above, here are some of the latest games:
