Either I'm getting old or new games can't interest me anymore.
I tried very hard to like and play some new games, but after sitting for half-hour, I seem to lose interest again.
I've built the latest desktop with a GTX 980Ti but still not able to enjoy new games as much as I enjoy older games.
New games seem to lack innovation and involvement. Others might argue but I just couldn't enjoy them that much. And I see that game companies are chasing after graphics tech...pushing the limits of graphics and CPUs... and milking sequels after sequels ...*cough*cough* Call of Duty *cough*
That said, the relatively new games I have been playing are Hitman series (Absolution f***ed up the mechanics) and Assassin's Creed IV).
I seem to enjoy Champions of Krynn rather than Witcher III.
Those days games that came on floppies could provide years of enjoyment. I still enjoy them today, more than new games. Games those days had more variety. Lemmings was so original that time. And so did Sim City. And countless other genre games, including memorable adventure games.
Likewise, I seem to enjoy Dos games immensely and the Win9x era games much much more.
And I love playing around with emulators and classic systems especially Amiga, Atari ST and classic consoles, - Sega Genesis, Saturn, Dreamcast, Super Nintendo, N64, Gameboy Advance and including playing PlayStation 1 games on PC and MAME.
Don;t get me wrong. I still play games. Never stopped. I'm still a hardcore gamer, in old games. Just that new games can't hold my interest anymore. Unified console and PC games have deteriorated the specialized values of PC only gaming.
I just hope companies stop chasing after utilizing the next generation graphics capabilities and focus on the f****ing gameplay.
Anybody else feel the same?
Maybe I'm just wired differently. Maybe i'm just a nostalgia junkie.
Or maybe, they don't make games like those days anymore! 🤣
