Am I the only one here who is continuously moving away from the video games world?
I mean, these days, I rarely try out new franchises and whatnot because they do little to keep me interested. And now many of the series I have been following all these years are beginning to fade too.
I can't be bothered with Mario (who has always been better in 2D) or Pokemon any more. There haven't been any PROPER new Fire Emblem games since 2008 and the new original one coming out this year is for the ******* 3DS. Zelda's big screen games are the only ones in the series that interest me, and they come out sporadically. Silent Hill is a recently discovered series for me, but I've already got the best three games in the series, the first three, although Downpour looks good. I never really followed Final Fantasy but the series is well past its prime, from what I've heard. Resident Evil is just about the only thing that's keeping me going at the moment, along with FIFA, but that's a different field (pun not intended), really. And so, I find myself looking into classics and old video games...pretty much anything from when home consoles began til 2005 or so.
But there's the problem! The games market has turned to utter ****! It's suffering under a plethora of FPS games (I own one, MW2, and I feel no need to buy any other COD games or even FPS games because they just all seem like the same thing in a different setting, and nobody plays the single player modes anyway) and free-roaming games like the Elder Scrolls series and Fallout 3 (okay, I haven't play Skyrim so I'm not going to judge it but I find games in this particular field, such as Oblivion and Fallout 3, to be too boring and far too non-linear). There isn't really much else going on. Not enough innovation any more, but the last 'original' kind of game I tried out was Mirror's Edge and that was ******* terrible!
