Brand new is in the title for a reason. cRPG is more of a habit than anything else. Games look interesting on trailers but I can't make myself to play them for longer periods. cRPG quick battle is perfect for me. Add anything extra and I quickly lose interest.

Anyone else like this?

Nope, however there seem to be less that interest me now. probably just a nostalgia thing though.

Well, my problem with regular games is that I'm too aware of elements they consist of and that kinda ruins it for me. Most are open world kind these days and that revolves around creating new char (with sliders and stuff), pick race, class etc. Then go from the bottom doing some quest which can be interesting but are nothing I haven't seen before. After all that you're out of content completely OP. Now they try to spice it up with world building aspect but I'm not into that anymore.

Basically, I've seen everything gaming industry has to offer and I'm in search of something new and exciting. But that just isn't out there.

Maybe in 2011-2012 and even then it's a stretch. CRPG with all the nerfs and in its current state is unplayable for me. Since we both started in 2010 i'm surprised it still got you hooked lol.

Nope, moved on. It's better to explore and try new games than become obsessed over one.

Only reason I have crpg installed is to look at the icon and think of the hours I wasted

Well, as a 14 year old I used to devour all gaming news and I would excited about at least 5 unreleased games at any time. That is a little different now, I have been excited about two triple-AAA games in the past 3 years and those are GTA V and the Witcher 3, neither of which I have played more than 20 hours so far. Aside from that I played cRPG and Supreme Commander Forged Alliance, of which the first is too dead for me to enjoy and the second requires a very specific mood to play. I have zero inclination to play any new games, any time I decided to give one a go I got bored within 2 hours or I never actually ran it after installing.

Adult life and changing life priorities definitely caught up with me now at age 21 Really glad about that, back in the day I was worried that I would enjoy gaming just too much to ever be arsed to develop myself in any other way. Honestly it felt like the past two years went by slower than any of the others, when playing video games days just fly by meaninglessly.

The only games I look forward to every year are Fifa and football manager.
Other than that, I'll just watch E3 and see what I fancy.

Seen Interstellar and Guardians of the Galaxy this week (haven't watched before). Got me hooked on PU, but that's so far away.

There's just no more time and so much other shit to do. I think I'll jump on the adult 'buy 3 year old games, never finish until 5 years later' bandwagon.

Besides, there's real life grinding to do. When I've leveled up enough, I'll go back to concentrating on games.

In a retirement community that has a LAN network. Or VR hub, whatever the hell will be around by then.

I find as I get older, I don't enjoy popular media as much as I used to. I remember getting Morrowind when I was 10 years and to this day, I still compare everything Bethesda puts out to it. I remember old platformers on the Sega Genesis and playing Ocarina of Time. I got a Dreamcast and praised it as ahead of its time. I used to save up my money and buy a console every generation. Now I could give a shit. I don't even have one now.

I played some vidya with my younger brother and his friend the other day and played some video games with them. I bitched about how games weren't as good as when I was a kid, how everything's dumbed down for a casual market, that games handhold your way through them, and that most games stick to the same formula anymore.

And to be honest, I'm not game-maker's target audience anymore. They're building games for the kids who are in high school now, and what they are interested in. I guess real life happens and that's easy to claim, but really, I just got old and games are marketed towards younger folks.

Just pirated a Metro 2033 Redux. Played the original Last Light before and didn't like it, but this one got me hooked with story, immersion and even combat. There's alot to the gameplay although the AI could be improved for a 2014 game. All in all, it has a short campaign, likeable characters(even memorable ones, lol) and a better postapo atmosphere than the Stalker games. Reccomend it, if you don't mind singleplayer games. If you're only into MMO's I would wait a year for The Division. If you don't mind 3rd person shooters that is. Than I would advise you to buy the upcoming Ubisoft exlusive For Honor or just to fuck off, thanks.
