>>25606566 I had one of those moments when playing The Sims and I was suddenly aware that I was living vicariously through a virtual dolls house simulator. Wasting my time watching my avatar run on a treadmill, having a career, making friends, and raising a family...
28 here, Pipefitter by trade- 80k a year net yet i still love me some vidya
though i will say that its become very FINE TUNED, whereas a child i could pick up any game and have fun now its only certain games
LOVE grand Strategy, GOOD WRPGS, and JRPGS, yes even the shitty ones(Final Fantasy XIII series- we have no idea what the fuck is going on, they pay us here to churn out these things every 2 years, so heres some mecha shit)
sorta like watching a bad movie and laughing at it
I'm 30 and I still play them, but my desire has waned a lot and all recent games are mundane shit. I seek out good older stuff now. Played System Shock 1 over the holidays for the first time and had a fucking blast.
IDK, I'd say about 2009. Games haven't had that magic to them for nearly 7 years. I stopped liking Runescape, the 2nd Gears of War was garbage compared to the first, Dawn of War 2 came out and it sucked. Following all of that, I bought a Wii and some of the acclaimed games for it (Zelda, Metroid Trilogy, Smash Bros), and I only really enjoyed Metroid Prime 1.
Honestly haven't straight up fallen in love with a game since Gears of War 1. I have plenty of games since then that I thoroughly enjoyed, just no game that I can really play for longer than an hour or two and just get lost in. Feels bad man, but probably for the best.
I miss the nights where I'd stay up for 12 hours straight smelling of B.O. and playing Gears of War 1.
>only game I liked in recent years was dota2 >childhood friend likes it too but he's awful >seriously brings me down since we're in voice chat all the time, he gets super moody when we're losing or getting BMd >have to go offline on friends and play to avoid him >he catches me sometimes and invites to party
except an occasional match of civ or beyond earth, i dont really play any more. even elder scrolls or fallout are no fun anymore. last thing i played was undertale, then i played fo4 for like 30 minutes and lost interest. either games get worse or im just too old for them.
>>25607111 >beyond Earth >Developer: and were going to have tech trees! and your going to put your purity, etc points in them and blah blah blah.... >Developer: eh its only 50% done, half the shit is broken and its optimized like shit, GOOD ENOUGH! SHIP IT!
i see why you dont like vidya anymore, you were playing pure shit
>>25607441 Duke betrays you, you kill the dragon get your heart back, salvation cult leader dies by dragon, dragon forged dies, Damion when you kill him is redeemed but his body is left behind and grows a dragon head on his chest, you gather 20 wakestones and kill God then become God then you kill yourself and your pawn becomes you.

>>25607475 gameplay wise? i thought gears 3 was really polished and felt the best to play but i hated the fucking retro lancer in terms of the story i thought 1 was interesting because they made the locusts more of these monsters from the ground that you really didnt understand or knew about at all. they seemed more mysterious and eerie, rather than just a horde of mutated humans with guns i was actually top 200 in gears 2 leaderboards
>>25607436 lol if you think Rubberbanding isnt in Racing games nowadays
>get in 1st place, know every turn of the track, every twist, have the best car suited to it >outpace everyother car on the track, catching up on last place player whos still playing the last lap >suddenly 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place MYSTERIOUSLY catch up all at once

>nitro injected million dollar car, outpaced and outrun by county sherriffs cop car
i understand why its there, its to drive little timmy's ego and pride and make him want to win even more but i dont give a fuck
It's pretty horrible. After fagsex fucked up herblore I lost interest in runescape. Grand exchange was the final straw and I quit. That was really the last game I loved on an obsession level. I guess I played cosmic break a ridiculous amount of time but lost interest after my bitch gf smashed my computer and by the time I got it fixed I was so out of the loop with meta and all it lost its magic. My brother showed me terraria when it was free on live. That was fun for about a month. Before that we beat Charlie murder and unlocked characters. That's about the only time I play vidya anymore. It's fun, but I just don't have the energy for single player or even multi-player unless he starts it up and there is beer. Black cops is fun. I wasted a a year of gold for it and never play. I wish I could just take a pill and be obsessed with vidya again. My grown up hobbies suck.
Why would you want to? If there is something better than vidya then just do it. My problem was I stopped liking vidya, but didn't really enjoy anything else. The most exciting shit I do now is design shit like comfy houses, fancy houses, imagine entertaining and having a badass parlour, gameroom, and all sorts of shit like that, then I do homestead, designing qt cottages and trying to plan super efficient farmer shit or pretty landscaping shit with natural pools, or cool distilleries, breweries, and wineries.
