If anything, I've been feeling overwhelmed with the stack of games piling up.
I've been putting in countless hours with Dong Dong Never Die, DungeonChaos, Runman Race Around The World, and the Streets Of Rage remake.

I've got even more that are untouched! It's a great year to be a pc gamer
+1 point for you.

OT - I find that every so often there will be games that grab my attention, but I tend to polarize around Blizzard games and BC2.

Fable 3 and Witcher 2 just came out this week. Witcher 2 is suppose to be 60 hours according to some video I watched of it, not to sure about F3 though.

As one of the older generation I think we grew up with a high sense of entitlement in pc gaming. In fact that underwhelmed feeling has been there for 5-10 years. People said Crysis was so good and a tech breakthrough when in fact it was filled with bugs and the actual gameplay was just okay. You can like ME/ME2 but even those compared to what we thought PC games would be are just disappointing titles. When the first Witcher came out it brought back some of the glory that games like Fallout 1 and 2 had. With the new Witcher 2 game, it really shows how old in terms of a PC gamer I am. When I saw the quick time sequences for the first time I just facepalmed. As for "great" games (according to most people) like BC2, people rave how good it looks but forget there's only one dx11 feature and the actual graphics are just so old. Just as a side note, how can dice forget to limit the number of players who play a class type in a rush game. Having more than half the team being sniper is just plain retarded when they're just sitting around dueling other snipers.

I usually feel the same way. They are giving us worthless games that are released with the sole purpose of turning a profit instead of giving us a solid game that will keep us coming back. I will say however, pick up The Witcher 2. Haven't played a game this good since ME2.

I can partially agree with some of your comments.

BC2 is a fine improvement, while graphics might not be cutting edge best, they do up the ante with the destructable environment that means that the game never plays out the same way. That is truly a defining feature of the game that pushes the genre forward. I also do not feel it is correct to blame dice for the fact that some people refuse to work together as a team. Its the equivalent to blaming valve because in tf2 your team doesnt get the proper mix of classes or defend their objective.

QTE are not new, they have been around since the 80s, as a pc gamer i would think you would remember them. They are well used in the witcher 2.

But in terms of story, depth of character building, modern games have been lacking in many ways. A few stand outs survive, neverwinter nights 2, dues ex, The witcher 1 and 2. Bioshock 1. Alpha protocol(yes this game took story telling and consequences for your actions to another level, just like the witcher 2.).

I bought this on a $5 sale but haven't tried it yet, will have to give it a go.

I think the reason we get underwhelemed with recent titles is because they are hyped so much more now than they used to be. We see all the good parts of the game advertised over and over again and think "oh, that will be a kickass game". Then we get the game and find out that good part was only a small part of the game itself and are let down. I think there is too much hype now around upcomming games, that leads to unrealistic expectations, that leads to let downs.
