Nope. Not at all. I don't want all games to be any one thing. People are always so fixated on limiting and putting boundaries on what the medium can be. If you only like certain types of games then play those types of games but don't stop others from appreciating diversity. Games have so many experiences to offer beyond being fun.
It's cool to see other physics duders on the site! I recently graduated from a four year physics MSci and overall I enjoyed it. You have to really like the subject otherwise you'll get bored or frustrated very quickly. My modules in the first two years weren't that bad (apart from having a lot of lectures) but in third and fourth year things got significantly harder. Fourth year was quite brutal because we also had a major project (essentially doing your own research with the help of a supervisor) that if you didn't keep on top of from the start could leave with a lot of work and not enough time. Apart from final year I only occasionally had to do reports and even then they were quite simple. You might have to do spreadsheet analysis in your labwork because that's the best way to analyse data in a lot of cases. Again, that's not especially difficult.
I don't regret not picking another subject. The way degrees are taught in the UK is different to the US. Over here you just do the subject of your degree and can't take modules in other subjects. If I had the choice I may have taken a few modules in engineering, maths or another physics related subject but we don't have that option.
PSN and XBLA were made platforms at the time because it was worth having a distinction between physical and digital releases on consoles. Now digital releases on PS4 and Xbox One are treated the same as physical releases, they are just linked platform page of the console itself. I believe Jeff has mentioned before about possibly removing the digital storefronts as platform pages but you have to bring it up with him. At this point those pages have become so established that it would be difficult to remove them and transfer all the associations to another page.
