Due to work in recent weeks, I wasn't able to play any VNs for about a week straight... and when I tried to pick up Ouka Sabaki to finish Feb's releases, I found I had no urge whatsoever to play a VN... any VN.
Understand, I've been playing VNs constantly since 2009. I literally have not gone more than a day without playing at least a little bit of a VN (even if it was only a half hour or so) since then. So, to my shock, I've found I don't have the energy to pick one up for the first time in almost eight years.
I'm an addict, it's true... but apparently, somewhere in the last few months, something broke me out of my fixation and I found myself uninterested in playing VNs outside of my personal obsessions. I still plowed my way through despite that in January and February, but I felt like a kid going back to his homework after a few hours playing video games when I tried to play another after that delay.
This might seriously be the effective end of VN of the Month, if I can't recapture my desire to continue...
