Yeah, I know. I mean, I haven't stopped enjoying gaming or anything, I've just grown away from some of the directions it's taking. Like I said before, some games this year gave me heaps and heaps of fun, most notably New Super Mario Bros. Wii, but also Street Fighter IV and Punch-Out!!
Well yea I know what you mean there. I mean I'm still loving gaming and why i probably won't cut back on it. It's just it would be nice that the big hyped games we are getting just aren't all about shock value and stale in nature. I mean it is sad when some of the most fun experiences games had in 2009 were that of games remade from classics of old such as the three you mentioned. The old games weren't about shock value but about the experience and that is why they are timeless. There were obviously some great experiences in 2009 but too many times were we shown games that were all hype with no substance.
Luckily 2010 looks a lot more promising with a lot of developers either going back to their roots or bring games that recognize experience over the packaging. Also good to hear that a lot of these devs are focusing on quality not quantity which has been another problem.
