have you ever felt completely bored with gaming, even though you've got a ton of brand-new, highly rated games on your harddrive, waiting to be burned/flashed/mounted? i get this feeling, during the last years more and more often, with every console i own. sure, it's got to do with my age, too. being 31 now, i am gaming for about 24 years now. so you've seen all the basics, it's getting a little harder to feel impressed with every new game you've seen... but what's a much bigger issue imo is the easy access to thousands of games i have for years now. how can you actually enjoy playing say... MadWorld, when at the same time 10 new "must-haves" for the DS are getting released, and the pile of PS2 RPG gems is already higher than my room ceiling... so what to do? it's good to cut down once in a while, not getting every game helps´a lot obviously. lately i find myself purchasing games again, and the feeling is definitely different. if you spend money on a game, you'll actually want to invest some time in it. time that the game might need to grow on you. ( same goes for music, i am sick and tired of mp3s when i can actually enjoy original artwork, read the lyrics or whatever. ) mind you, i am not saying that piracy is a bad thing per se. that would be pretty stupid considering the insane ammount of games i downloaded over the years. but i think if it gets too easy to play just anything you want, you'll lose the fun. it's like being that rich, spoiled brat that can have anything. this winter for example, i decided to finally finish metroid prime for wii. to get me doing so, i took all my other gaming stuff and put it in another room where i wouldnt get tempted so easily, not allowing myself to touch another game 'til i finish this sucker and damn, it was the most fun i had with a game in months... how do you guys feel about that?
