Do you ever need to take time off of gaming?

I don't know about anyone else, but after a while I get burned out on video games and need a break. My brakes go on for 3~6 months of no video games to try and decompress. Because all I do is play video games and after a while my brain gets overwhelmed. How about you? Do you ever need to take time off of gaming?
 
I take huge breaks sometimes from both the computer and gaming. Never both at once but I'm either on the PC and not gaming or vice versa. Gaming is really fun for me but cheaters sometimes ruin it.
 
I start to lose my touch with reality.
That's exactly what happened to me. I was gaming 70+ hours a week, and I wasn't taking care of my real life oblation like I should have been. Because I was tuck inside of Elder Scrolls Online. So I sold my PS5 and Xbox Series X 2 months ago and life is good now.
 
I have been known to get burned out on video games in the past and it can be very frustrating when that happens. At the moment I have had to take a different line of work and because of that, I spend less time gaming and do miss it so would love to get back into it when I have more time.
 
I need breaks or time off. If I game too much, I start to lose my touch with reality.

Playing games more can make one begin to lose concentration. I don't like the fact that such can happened, though. I mean, when you look at the fact that you will be isolated from reality when you play more games, you may end up not spending more time to play games.
