I used to think that left 2 options: either learn to appreciate what modern gaming has to offer (and despite the incessant bitching to the contrary from the old snobs there is a LOT that it offers) or just accept that gaming has changed and that this is the hobby for you. But in the last few years I see that many people have chosen a third: keep buying games then complain constantly that they suck and belittle anyone who finds enjoyment in them.
I could have sworn you used to argue this with me. Jerykk, too.
But I think several of the older posters here have reached the point that they no longer feel like spending energy complaining and instead have looked for the good out there. And there's still good to be found.
As you mentioned, NV and DX:HR are fantastic games that may be different than their predecessors, and may play differently, but are ridiculously well made, fun games.
