    If I find an interesting game I give it at least a week to think about it before buying. If I forget about it by day 8 it wasn't worth purchasing in the first place.

    I got divorced from the one I tried to find another longterm one but gave up on that search. Nowadays I know my type and do one for a few weeks before i hop to the next one. Bad part is that I do it less than I did back to when there was only the one.

    I've moved into the hyper-critical phase. 

    Turned 40 this past year and games that I would have just been happier than a pig in shit to play at 20, I can pick apart like carrion birds on a carcass now.

    For instance, I'm 250 hours deep into Total War Warhammer II now, and I already have a list of a dozen things that I don't agree with, mildly irritate me, annoy me and piss me off.  But if I'd had this game in 1998, I would have lost my shit over how good it is.

    What sucks is that in 1998 I had very few choices, and almost no money so my choices had to go a lot further, but I was very easily impressed and threw myself into games like Baldur's Gate/Diablo/Warcraft 100%. 

    In 2018 I have literally hundreds of choices, could buy a half dozen games a month and my wife wouldn't notice the money missing, but the spark isn't there.  I'm not easily impressed.  I sometimes have to force myself to install and launch a game that I bought because the thought of learning all the damn stats, what they do, how to optimize them, what skills are best... etc, just overwhelms me and I don't start.

    Some games I start, and then I realize that maaaaan, I do not want to have to do the mountains of research I'd need to play this game.  Such as Tyranny or Endless Space, where I'm gonna need to do a lot of reading about the game mechanics to even understand what I'm doing.

    So many games, so little time...

    I'm enjoying games as much as ever really, but not MMORPGs....I havent found a good one of those in a decade.
