There's a reason I prefer older titles, and it's because modern PC gaming blows.
Speaking as someone who prefers console gaming to PC gaming (though I love both), modern console gaming is mostly pretty bad too. Games are largely unimaginative, simplified so that any casual person can play through them with little thought, and concentrate far too much on great graphics and having a 'movie like experience'. And console gamers, like PC gamers, are treated as unpaid beta testers. Actually, we ourselves pay the companies to let us beta test their games - I bought Spiderman 2018 (PS4) on the day of release, and had to spend nearly an hour installing it (46 GB or so, I can't remember the exact figure), plus a day one patch of more than half a GB had to be downloaded (fortunately, simultaneously with the install) - I don't know how anyone without a 'net connection would get on, does the patch fix serious, game ruining bugs or what?
I too tend to prefer older games, with some really good exceptions, such as Spiderman 2018, Doom 2016, Prey 2017, Batman: Arkham Knight, Titanfall 2, and Dishonoured 2.
And yes, I too am a GOG man when it comes to PC games. No DRM is how every game should be. If GOG and it's servers shut down tomorrow, I'd still be able to play all my GOG games no problem.
