Personally, I think it's age related. Most of my memorable gaming moments is when I was in single digits. Like I can remember details for every game I played when I was an innocent child. Background design, soundtracks, levels, characters, etc. Nowadays my jaded-ass forgets the main character's name after a few hours.
Same for me, but I think it is a been there done that kind of thing. I remember all my Atari, NES, SNES, N64, and PS1 games down to the finest detail. Then it starts to get fuzzy with PS2, only a dozen titles I have deep memories of. Then with PS3 it is maybe a handful. On PS4, XBO, and Switch, I have enjoyed many expereinces, but I could only give you details on a few titles. With PSVR though. I can vividly remember every single game and expereince I have had.
I think it comes down to impactful new expereince, that completely go beyond your expectations. For me that is uniform across games, information, events, people, and anything else. The first holy crap moment is etched to the very core of my fabric, after that each additional repeat or incrementally more impressive moment memory is just a footnote.
The Uncharted series is a good example. In my memory, I absolutely adore Drake's Fortune, I love everything about it, I can pretty much remember every piece of Music, and every scence. Where as I remember enjoying playing Amoung Thieves, Drake's Deception, and A Thiefs End more, but I don't look back on them in the same light, nor do I remember half as much about them. Lost Legacy, however, I absolutely love, and remember vividly. So, initial great expereince, followed by incremental upgrades, and then a new formula. I remember the initial expereince and the new formula, but the inbetween is just a hazzy, but great time.
Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.
