I consider myself a hardcore gamer. but the industry completely destroyed my love for gaming. everything is so focused on graphics instead of gameplay, and everything is catered to NOOBS! even gameboy games suck now! i played the new zelda game for ds and they try making it like a fuckin console version. gameboy should be a platform where games thrive due to the fact that 2d is acceptable (i know there are still good games for it, but the direction its moving in makes me angry. everything comes to an end, even gaming. i sold my xbox 2 years ago and dont really miss it too much. every good game get destroyed in the sequel.. gears of war 2 and 3, halo reach, i hear socom sucks now. its a fuckin slap in the face to real gamers. and on top of all that, the market is flooded with them. shout out to game companies like rockstar, and bethesda.
