Why is it that ALMOST every time someone brings up how games aren't as good as they used to be, which is true, some 12 year old kid says "oh you're just thinking about nostalgia, games are so much better now, look at Command & Conquer 4, that's so much better than StarCraft or Command & Conquer 1. At which point the argument is pointless since the twelve year old kid just proved how stupid he is. Now I'm not saying all games now suck, because they don't, we still get a gem or two released every now and then, but true innovation has died for the most part. And now developers make games specifically for the lowest common denominator, in other words they dumb everything down and make it so little kids understand them, instead of fans of the actual game franchise. They always take games, and they skewer them, so that there are no more genres anymore, only "wee explosions" type games. Sure, we do get a few great games like Alan Wake, Heavy Rain, Singularity, Metro 2033, and a couple other great games, but for the most part, everything sucks.I know that some kid is going to reply to this thread and say something stupid like "but Modern Warfare 2 is the best game ever," and while he is entitled to his opinion, he is still wrong. It seems like ever since gaming went mainstream with this current generation, and game developers/publishers decided to switch to the console market and make games for the lowest common denominator, that's when gaming started to suck. It's not just nostalgia, it's the truth, games were made better back then, now everything is all about the graphics and the lowest common denominator. Someone in this thread will probably just say it's because of nostalgia or that I'm a retro gamer (which I am), but I don't care what you think.Well I just said my piece, I hope you enjoyed my informative post regarding the truth regarding game quality, or rather the lack there of this generation. Now go have a nice Friday.
