I don't know if it's becaues I'm older, or if video games truely have been dummied down so hard that I just no longer enjoy them. I also don't enjoy the online communities like I used to. It's filled with kids and trolls (not something I want to put up with when I get home from work).
I have been playing games since I was 5yrs old when nes came out. I played up to ps1 then switched to pc games since then. The last game I can actually remember enjoying was Lineage 2 from 2003 - 2006, and ragnarok online 2000-2003. It seems every game that has come out for pc since 2003 has been a failed copycat game, and for consols they just lost the fun/creativity since 2000 for me. Hobbies I have done other than gaming:
Martial arts for 7 years - retired.
Obtained my bachelors in IT.
Had a few girl friends but no longer have any interest for realizing what western women are.
Watched just about every movie and have heard just about every song 100+ times.
I would like to hear from other single male adults here what they have found to replace the time gap for video games. I'm so bored that it is depressing me to no end. I really have tried every single game and they all fall under the same 4 copycat game genres for me. The mmorpg's I once loved have been changed into on of these 4 genre's I don't enjoy:
Sandbox Games Copy+Pasted content games
WoW Style Games - instanced everything and faction based.
Pay to win model.
All fps games seem the same to me.
I must say that I recently played final fantasy 4 on nintendo ds and enjoyed every minute of it. So maybe it is not just me. Maybe I miss those old story lines with character build up and felt like the game had meaning and was fun. I don't know. What I do know is I really haven't enjoyed any new games that came out since 2006 and I have tried all of them. Any ideas for new hobbies?
