I'm so done with people bitching about Steam, it's my opinion you're not even a serious gamer if you don't have Steam. Considering like 80-90% of all games released are on Steam. Steam has pretty much been the standard now for many years.
I'm done with people bitching about DRM laiden digital distro platforms and then praising their 100 titles on steam in the same breath. Doesn't mean that's gonna stop happening all the time.

Maybe we need to start a form of "game club" (like a book club) where we all pledge to play X amount a week.

Admittedly being old myself, I struggle to not be "that guy" who blathers on about how great things were in the old days. They had their ups and downs, just like any generation. Honestly, these days it is easy to be skeptical, negative, and hateful about most things since more often than not there are myriad reasons given to do just that; experience dictates that it's the safe "default mode". Still, I personally am enjoying gaming as much today as I ever have despite certain regressions in areas (as noted by jdreyer and others) - I have actually become more tolerant in my old age instead of less, which is weird. So while I am tolerant of many of gaming's aforementioned regressions to a point (Blizzard and Bioware have in recent years regressed far beyond even what I can tolerate, and EA just flat-out sucks), I also find myself being tolerant of the the rampant negativity among those of us who are not so willing to tolerate many of modern gaming's shortcomings as I am. In truth, while it seems that many here default to hate mode almost immediately, from what I've seen this place if anything is pretty mild compared to other places, and actually the people hating in one thread to the next aren't usually the same (with some exceptions ).

Picked up Colonial Marines for $35 over at GMG because fuck it, that's why...
Ditto, I've spent more money on worse games!
I call dibs on welding doors shut in Co-Op!

My fucking god... appears there is some disgracing crap out there on the net.
It's almost like this shit was supposed to come out between AVP and AVP 2...

Is it bad that I've never finished a mission in ARMA 1 or 2 due to the crappy control's or horrible voice work?
And hit the 2nd island in Far Cry 3 yesterday.
Super Secret Text to follow:
Holy crap how many times does the main character 'die' in this game?

While they may not intentionally aim for inducing the gag reflex, for people like me who are hyper-sensitive to smells, even "good" smells can become objectionable after enough exposure. I can't walk through the perfume section of stores without winding up with a pounding headache.
Yeah, it would definitely need to be adjustable and subtle in general. Also, you can just not use it. :p
I look forward to game where the screen is black and you're simply forced to follow your nose...
