It might just be that 2009 has been a pretty dry year as far as video games are concerned (especially following a year like 2008). Don't force yourself to play games that you're not going to enjoy playing, wait until there is a game that your legitimately excited about. Maybe you should consider checking out some of the older games that got you into gaming in the first place. During the past year I've picked up a Genesis, a SNES, and an N64 and I've had a blast playing through some of the games of yesteryear.
Anyways, if you're not having fun playing video games, then don't play them. They are supposed to be an enjoyable experience and maybe you've just burnt-out on video games right now.
Neither the videos or the bombcast will load for some reason, and they worked fine earlier today. Im using a MacBook with Safari 4.0.1, but I also tried it with a vista laptop (using IE 8) and i get the same problems. I have power cycled my modem and router and they seem to be working fine. I have never had a problem watching anything on this site before.
MGS came out 11 years ago... God, maybe i am just getting old.
Anyways, what I ended up doing was unscrewing the top ball thing-y off of my NES Advantage and slid that across the circle button a bunch of times. Not only did that not work, but now my PSP is nice and scratched on and around the circle button. Time to admit defeat...
