The decline of videogames
Been a while since I ranted but today seems like as good a day as any for a comeback.
ANYWHO, today i ran out of videogames to play and decided to head over to my local blockbuster to see if there was anything fun worth playing. I get there and have a look around and 5 minutes later I walk back out because there is absolutely NOTHING that caught my attention.
That’s when it hit me, games have taken a nosedive nowadays and have very little going for them other than the fact that they all look very nice and shiny and your character looks super realistic! woot.
Now, this may just be my over exposure to Zero Punctuation videos (if you dont know what im talking about google it right now.) But I miss games that I could spend hours and hours playing not because I wanted a little trophy that i’ll forget about in a week but because I was enjoying the game so much that I wanted to keep playing just for the joy.
I feel like there’s no substance to games anymore. FF13, Heavy Rain, COD, Uncharted, they all are games that looked very nice and that I I played through and then beat but once it was over all I thought was “ok, what’s next”
