Fuckin' JRPGs bros. I mean, I used to play them too but I can hardly anymore stand games where most of the combat is so inconsequential.RedEyesBlackGamer said:Same here. I would play demos over and over again. I miss my low standards and innocence, something that casual players have.Onyx Oblivion said:I wish I wasn't so fucking jaded with this industry...I can hardly get excited for any game these days, for fear of disappointment. I remember when I was a young boy, and knew nothing of the industry. I bought games based on the box art and back-of-the-box descriptions, and rarely felt any tinge of disappointment. Every game I had brought me joy. I didn't read dozens of reviews on the internet (or in magazines), look up gameplay videos, and ask people on the forums about games. The most I ever did was play the occasional demo disc from my old "Playstation Underground" subscription. And even then, I didn't play every demo. Just the ones that appealed to me via their little description boxes.
I used to enjoy games that were really quite shit when I look back at them.
I hate being so fucking jaded.
I think what it takes to level up your taste is to get up and go play a competetive game in a real high level setting. Go to a tournament. FPS, RTS, STG, FG, TBS or whatever your into. Even if you suck just play that shit.
I guess what I'm saying is that there's a higher level that makes discarding the time you spend with the subpar for a deeper commitment to what really drives you, worth it. I just don't think it's a high level of taste that can be reached by becoming increasingly picky about anime simulators.
