could also be i am getting to old, but games sure not worth the money they cost
It's not that you're getting old. It's that the newer generation of gamers is less intelligent and never grew up on games in the 80's and 90's, so every new game SEEMS awesome to newer generations (that have never played the old games) and the stupidly braindead members of our generation think the new 'movie games' are amazing but are completely oblivious to what makes good gameplay.
I wracked my brain on this problem for many years as I and millions of others felt like that quake video on youtube "WTF happened??". The reality is we had a flood of non-gamers enter gaming that DON'T like videogames but only movies with minimal gameplay. If you look at all modern first person shooters they have been dumbed down beyond belief compared to shit like Quake and Unreal from the past. It's like watching FPS games go backwards.
Consolized Halo still can't touch Unreal 2004 for fucks sakes in terms of game modes, levels, etc, and it's 2012.This comment was edited on Nov 5, 2012, 09:34.
