How long can you play one genre of games before they all start to feel similar? I played wow for 3 years and now I can't touch anything that requires micro management. These days all I have patience for is FPS games where there is no management and the action is always instant and never ending.
When you were growing up did you play one type of game? I didn't, I played all types until I got older and got set in my ways. Food for thought
I still enjoy all types of games, although I will say there is a far cry between Final fanstasy 1 and the current one, I enjoyed the first 4 FF, but then they started to becoming animated games that you watched instead of playing, and I enjoyed the orginal 3 world of warcraft games despite the fact I hate micro managing games, I prefer turned based games like civ. Although you make a good point, when I was younger I didn't much care for FPS games and now that is what seems to be the only half way decent games I can find to play.
I was sadly disappointed in Transformers cybertron, I did enjoy batman AA, although if you're not a fan of batman you probably would have found that game really, really boring. I found dragon age to be about the worst hyped game I've ever had the priveledge to play, most would probably agree, but I hated it.
I don't know maybe with the better graphics and the faster computers and all the crap they can do with games these days, they only think about just that, what they can do, but not what they should be doing
