You have to give us some credit for giving you guys something different to play.
As I get older I find myself questioning why I want to play a game. It's not enough for a game to be different...there has to be a hook for me and I'm finding that hook more and more difficult to find.
Everyday Shooter is the last game I bought and enjoyed (still enjoy) playing...for the sounds more than the somewhat retro shooter game play. That's the hook...
"Commercial" games just don't work for me any more...as Trinity said to Neo(approx)..."you've been down that road before, you know where it leads"...it's how I feel about big commercial titles now...I'm probably missing out on some stuff but I doubt it's much to get upset about. In the past I'd buy a game just for an instant shiny graphics fix that would soon fade...not any more.
Shit...I sound like an old fogey
