I know there are real-world technical issues that prevent the old five-year-cycle way of doing things, but I really miss it. It was so exciting to get brand new hardware and games every five years. Especially considering how much more advanced those consoles and games were from the last console. It seemed the industry was always on the forefront of some new, formerly-unthinkable evolution. Now, I don't get that feeling at all anymore. It's all pretty much gone.

It is more that when we were younger 5 years seemed to take a lot longer than it does when we are older.
