Re: when its gone .

I know exactly what you mean. I stopped playing video games when the ps1 came out. I started to play again when the ps2 was at the end of its cycle. I didn't play it much but the games were definitely different.

I've had original xbox modded with emulation. I did get that nostalgia back but i didnt play the games much. I modded my ps2 to play all the shoot em ups but i never really played them considering that is my favorite genre.

I bought a 360 to the urging of an acquaintance. I liked the idea behind the arcade and spent some time in it, but crap release after crap release and non-arcade to boot i got tired.

I remember each week my brother and myself would get a new game for the NES. I equally felt bad since i usually beat the games rather quickly. I had well over 200 NES games. When the 16-bit consoles came out, i spent my days on SNES: 2020 baseball, super mario world, super bases loaded and f-zero. For Genesis it was Sonic and mostly SOR. I probably had about 30 games on SNES and 12 for the Genesis.

I can't explain why i stopped but it was obvious my game catalog became smaller for each system. I prefer 2d games over movie/3d. I do like some of those games but i grew up in 2d. Also I think I'm a fair-weathered gamer. I only play games when something is at stake (prizes, ranking etc).
