Which still doesn't change the fact that the late nineties/early oughts were essentially a golden era, especially as far as story telling goes. RPGs were lightyears better, shooters were more inventive/fun (especially because of the ease/popularity of modding), there were a ton of good strategy games, we still had space sims, there were more/better platformers (there were like a million Ratchet and Clanks on PS2, and we still only have 2 plus that stupid multiplayer one on PS3). We are in the heyday of generic shooters and generic action games. Borderlands may be fun, but it's empty pleasure and not something I'll look fondly back at ten years from now (if Borderlands is what I'm reminiscing of ten years from now I'll hang myself in despair).
