Ya know I have been a gamer for 25 years. I mean, computer games. I started my career with the old Commore C64, later to Amiga and then PC. I guess over the years I have played 1000 or more computer games. (Never was into consoles tho.) I played action, RPG and adventures mostly, but also my share of strategy, and I can honestly say of the many, many games I played, I finished about 98%.
Now, I am playing "Batman Arkham Asylum" for PC and "Venetica", both action RPGs... and on both I feel like I never gonna see the end of it. For me, gaming was always a sort of escapism, a way to play hero. I guess like for many. But recently, I face more and more games I just can't finish. I had played "Risen" the follow-up game of the Gothic series... and I just could not beat the End Boss. I just COULD NOT. It was something sequenced where you neede to react fast and in perfect timing, and granted, I never was good at that, and that kind of combat just recently came to PC games.
I just tried that damn Boss Mob 3 hours but I was unable to finish him (even WITH godmode in the end, due to the need of make the correct reaction sequence), and so the lands prolly were destroyed, I figure.
I always was proud to be a fairly experienced gamer. But recently... I feel like the old Obi-Wan, when confronting Vader, and Vader says to him that he was gotten slow or something. I so feel like that, now. Old. Getting too slow and too weak to manage a hobby I used to be quite good in. *sigh* Too many game worlds left where evil prevails. -__-
