I did the same, didn't do any gaming at all from 2010 to 2013. But when I returned I realized how great it was since it had created a big backlog of good games. And as I caught up I was able to get them all on sale or GOTY editions, DLC, patched up. I'm still catching up a bit. It worked out great actually. Since then I've only bought maybe three games at release, as there's always a two or three year old game I want and have yet to play.
Good hunting trooper.
