|Tony, this one is for you|
The same thing happened to me awhile back. For about two years (from 2008~2009) I hardly played anything aside from a couple of flash games like Last Stand and Gemcraft. I also still read reviews and occasionally frequented message boards just to see what was going on. Otherwise though it was basically an extended hiatus. The truth is I didn't miss all that much. Of course, some interesting games came out; Dead Space, Flower and Valkyria Chronicles to name a few, but I got around to playing all of them eventually. Sure, I missed out on the zeitgeist, but the early discussion threads were archived for posterity and other folks inevitably started new "LttP" message threads as well. Overall, there weren't any negative consequences to my absence.

As for video games...don't worry. They'll still keep doing their thing. Meanwhile your Steam library isn't going anywhere. Any games you happen to miss out on will remain available for purchase through online retailers for the indefinite future (most likely at discounted prices and with less bugs to boot). So, get out and experience all the great things life has to offer. Video games will still be around when (and if) you decide to come back.
