What year did gaming die for you?
>>
The year The Last Of Us was released.

Well gaming, I guess we're the last of us.
>>
2005-2007 we just had this thread
>>
>>256343447

Things slowly started going downhill with the release of the Xbox. Things really started going downhill in 2006 with Oblivion's horse armor and Wii Sports. 2007 was the final nail in the coffin.

The day I started to notice the fairer sex. Seriously. When my childhood faded, so too did my deep amazement of video-games.
>>
>>256343447
It never did. I still have all my old games and new games I enjoy playing are still being made.

Yeah I was just joking around with that first thead comment.

TLOU is like the Resident Evil 4 of this gen but better in almost every way.

Is it a masterpiece? No, the AI sucks dick, but it's still pretty damn good.

TLoU is a great game and is the perfect example of how /v/ is wrong for being nerds with contrarian taste.

>mfw TLoU came out and /v/ said it was a movie
that's an epic meme just like "grinning gold face man"

>mfw TLoU came out and /v/ said it was a terrible game
not terrible but not 10/10 either

>mfw TLoU came out and /v/ said Sony paid for the reviews
they might have, but in all honesty, TLoU, along with maybe Gone Home really proved the inadequacy of "gaming journalism"

>mfw TLoU came out and /v/ said it was SJW shit
the DLC was

>mfw TLoU came out and /v/ said only Sony fanboys were defending the game
well yeah it's an exclusive. most people posting on /v/ about it were in fact sony fanboys

>mfw TLoU came out and /v/ said all the TLoU threads were marketing and Sony shill threads
again, might have. but all exclusives get shilled anyway regardless of actual quality

>mfw TLoU came out and /v/ said it would be a flavour of the month game, like Bioshock Infinite
it was

>mfw TLoU came out and /v/ said that nobody would be talking about the game a month from then
which happened

>mfw 6 months passed and /v/ was still regularly talking about TLoU

>mfw a year passed and /v/ was still talking about the game

because it's not like there's much else coming out, is there?

One of what kind? Those that don't get deluded? Yes, that's me.
>>
>>256343447
There wasn't an exact time for me, but in 2010 I bought a PS3 and a whole bunch of games with it. They were all shit, but the biggest offender was the Uncharted series. It was absolutely the most unfun piece of shit chore of a "game" I ever played. Then I remembered that this is the series that's getting GOTY awards from everyone and their mother and realized that gaming was going in a direction that simply wasn't for me. From there I began to play less and less games and eventually I lost control of my life to the point of my current state where I exclusively play kusoge JRPGs.
>>
>>256344684
No one wins discussions on The Internet. Those who think they do are being fooled by their ego and lives in unconscioussness.

Now to me, gaming never died and probably never will. Shitty games will always exist but guess what, they always have. Just play what you want and go zen.

Just yesterday there was a thread discussing Joel's selfishness which had over 400 replies last I saw.

Stay in denial, anon.

Well, Uncharted 2 was actually bretty gud. 3 was shit because they used a b-team for development.

>>256346004
I know that feeling where AAA games feel more like a chore than an interactive experience.

>>256345808
Weird, it's the other way around with me.

I have AT&T and the customer service reps are always fucking subhuman Indians.

You most likely never played TLOU, and unless you prove that you have, I'll just assume you haven't.

Therefore, your hatred of the game and the 'facts' you will use to justify your feelings are all delusions. You convinced yourself that they're true despite never having experienced the thing you're talking about.

Therefore, you are not one of those who don't get deluded.

Not because games are shit these days, but because I can't fucking play a game for more than 10 minutes without being bored to fucking death.

I predict that only "the witcher 3" will keep me entertained enough for a long play.

2013

I don't know, to be honest

I didn't really hate any games like /v/

Kind of drifted away and got bored of them.

Yesterday I attempted to install Maplestory to get the addiction back but I deleted the game at 50%.

I haven't touched my PS3 since GTA5 and I don't plan on getting the PS4 unless Shenmue 3 and Yakuza 5 are coming out.

Every year since 2008ish.
And every year there is one game that is really fun and I'm happy to never gave up gaming.

you suck /v/, you will never get my soul
>>
Gaming will never die /v/.
There will always be games worth playing even in the sea of shit that is the gaming industry.
There will always be that game that you can like despite all of it's flaws.
But we will die for gaming. Life will take us away from it. It will become too much for us , be it due to families , illnesses , jobs etc. At some point we will be the casuals.
Enjoy this time while it lasts.
>>
>>256343447
Gaming has never really 'died' for me, only certain genres.

For example, RTS died in my opinion when EA released that F2P monstrosity it dared to call a C&C game.
Survival Horror passed away after the release of Resident Evil 4 and 5. Ever since then, horror games have still retained a slight over emphasis on action rather than actual horror.
FPS isn't really dead yet, but it is in decline, I feel this started to happen around 2007 with the yearly shovelfest of CoD titles
