tpi2007 These companies really are at the end of the line in terms of greed, aren't they?

skupples - update -

switch lite in hand, and I keep playing it till the battery dies. definitely not too old. You get over the fact its probably costs nintendo $20 to produce them. I'd most definitely pay the price for a switch with top of the line graphics and oled. I'm completely on board for their next gen console refresh, if I can play my switch stuff on it.

StarLink is an awesome game, so awesome that i wish ubisoft had some sorta key upgrade fee so I could play it on my PC as well.

I also picked up gamestop used wii U kit after some research on home brews. Seems like the wii platform is amazing for it. I want ONE box that'll play 99% of the classics, and easily. Wii U conforms to this requirement & then some. ($120 for best kit, no games)

Prophet4NO1 I game more than any other entertainment any more. At least when home. But, I am playing basically no online games anymore. The only competitive game I play regularly is World of Warships. I play a few co-op games with some friends. But that is about it online. Single-player is less and less shooters. I only fire up the great ones once in a while. Last new one I grabbed was DOOM 2016. Instead I have shifted to Euro Truck / American Truck Simulator and Farming Simulator. A few years ago those games would bore the hell out of me. Now, I find them to be good fun and most shooters boring. Guess all this comes with age though.

rluker5 Somehow I'm not getting too old for games. TV- too old. Movies - for the most part. I don't even follow what is coming out that much. For the most part just try to watch something my daughter will enjoy. Games are still fun. Maybe I have low standards, but they seem to be doing better than tv or movies. I mostly play rpgs/action but the story and character development has to be better than movies or tv. I don't expect them to beat classic scifi or anything and they can't replace exercising outdoors but I can still sit down and enjoy them. I play them on my schedule though.
Currently enjoying Tales of Berseria, was going through the updating dlcs in AC Odyssey (played the dude, reminded me of Kevin Sorbo from Hercules) before that, SOTTR before that, some Serious Sam3 vr and Hellblade before that, liked the whole Dishonored series (the more parts I played the better it got), Mass E.A was fun after you changed how some looked, Wolfenstein N.O. was fun enough that I will play New Colossus when I get time, even though it seems not quite as good, l ofc had a great experience with W3, ok with W2,W, Prey was decent, Endereal off of Skyrim was refreshing, there are lots more. These are all pretty decent at least imo and more worthy of my free time than most passive recreation.
I probably just have more free time than a lot.

iamjanco A bit OT, but generally speaking, it could always be worse...

"spending their hard-earned Atoms" - that right there summarizes the current triple-A gaming scene, games that feel like work and then the company sells you more stuff (Atoms in this case) besides the price you already paid for the game to make it feel less like work.

This is the antithesis of gaming. When will the mass market realize that they're not playing a game, they're being played.

I been playing video games my whole life, and I remember playing Resident evil 4 in the play, and jumping to Stalker COP (I played many games between them of course) and saying "oh man this games are great" and right after I finished Stalker I jumped to Fallout 3 ( I did not play them when they where release) and man, Fallout 3 was the best game ever for me (yeah, yeah you can say whatever you want, that the game is broken blah blah blah) and now where is Resident evil? Stalker? I wish they made another stalker, Metro was a real good game and actually looking forward to Metro exodus

This. The games these days frankly suck. They put all effort into making a game eye catching but the actual mechanics are the same.

charlesclay Yes. I always have to play alone because my friends aren't into my favorite game types. Now I have to spend most of time to work and just have some rare moment to relax with some mobile games (lab escape, talking tom gold run, tap tap dash game)
