Urghhh

Don't known why.. but i  remembered how much i enjoyed play Call of Duty 3 (no, not moder warfare, i mean the old one, the first one made by treyarch), i know wasn't the best of the series but it had multiplayer splitscreen, and enjoyed that playing with 4 friends lot of hours back on the first days of the 360... my brother told me couple of months ago that is not available for playing online anymore, i wasn't surprised becouse i heard many games i used to enjoy got their online function killed ( medal of honor for psp was one of them, back when i started to live alone, and the only thing i had to spend the night was and old crt tv and my psp...  forced myself to move from my parents house becouse i didn't had enought space there (shared a room with my brother) to do what i do now.. working with many computers and artists...

Anyway, it was 8am and decided to try by myself if it was truth and unexpectedly the game online function worked, when i was waiting to try playing it online (after years i believe) i remembered this was the last FPS that i played, as soon the game started and notice my eyes was not able to focus, all was blurry, don't know if my sight got worst or is just becouse i have a big tv now.. leaved the game and returned to the main menu, i was listening the music with a nostalgia feeling for a while and then notice the year... it was made 2006 ...damn, 7 years already?....

i returned to the xbox dashboard (the main menu) and started to browse between all the xbox live arcade games that i have... so many games, some of them are retro, saw the sonic ones , and remembered how i wanted to have all the sonic games on my xbox, and nowdays i'm mostly a pc gamer... so many games that i used to play, specially the old ones, joust, castlevania, doom... saw the monkey island remastered game,.. and then the intro of it (they put the pixelated version for the first seconds before going hd once the game really start)... i pushed select to return to the original version and i saw those pixels that i used to see back in the 90's, my imagination used to fly with those pixels and the hd version doesn't let me use my imagination someway....  the music of monkey island was still on my head when suddenly got the feeling of vomit...  i didn't had my breakfast yet... so i didn't throw up... felt like discovering something on me died on these latests years, where i can't find any fun playing games like the latest god of war (loved the first games of the series) or the new DMC  (spectacular graphics)... i turned off the xbox, decided to put some music and, i'm starting to work now, but that feeling on my guts doesn't leave me yet, even an hour after that...  seriously.. is like i want to throw up the emptyness of my stomach...

I used to be a console gamer too, but now mostly a PC gamer too.

When I look at my old games for my console I"m like "wow, the system had some really unique games".  Too bad most of them won't work without a patch, and when they take the servers off the system, they won't update anymore.  Sadness.

It's like modern games have had all the fun sucked out of them. I look at the trailer of Sonic Lost worlds and simply sit there and feel empty, there's nothing in it that even speaks to me, nothing that tells me to get this game; I've felt this way since Sonic Colors.

And its not just with Sonic games, a lot of the games I used to love just make me sigh. Last sandbox game that amused me was GTA IV, my last adventure game that made me smile and laugh was Uncharted 2. The only game in the past two years that entertained me was Portal 2.

Seriously, I've suck low enough to go out and get the trilogy collections of Jak and Daxter along with the Ratchet and Clank trilogy collection just to recapture the magic feeling of seeing new wonderful worlds. Playing Jak and Daxter was like a refresher, I remember what it was like to go through sentinel beach for the first time and just seeing the vast lush beach side.

People tell me get a new game system and I ask them why? Why should I spend 400 to 500 dollars on a system if it offers me nothing that'll make me smile, laugh and enjoy myself.

I'd rather dust off the old game consoles and play some old games that didn't relay on graphics or gimmicks to sell themselves.

Like Kya: Dark Linage for the PS2 and the even older, Panzer Dragoon Saga for the Sega Saturn.

Heh, great minds think alike they say.

Its too bad you don't have a PS3 or we could have been gaming together, well, if we also had the same games we could.

Too bad all I have for my PC right now is Fallout and Skyrim.

Try some indy games! They seem to have really captured that retro-game vibe and nostalgia lately. Hotline Miami, FTL, Rogue Legacy... there are too many to list :) Hope you feel better soon! If you ever need a video game partner, I'm sure I can find something!

I've played the COD games on the PS2/PS3 and was never really good at FPS. I only played it for the Zombies cause that's what interested me the most since I could actually get through it. But I find it saddening that game producers won't take the few days out of their schedule to keep the servers online, or to patch what needs to be. They just let the game die off. They see it as a tool for monetary gain, while we see it as something much more than that. We get connected to the games and characters. We share memories of things happening at times while we're playing them. They become a part of us in a way. Anyway I'll stop rambling and I hope you get better.

God so many here make me feel old, I grew up on the Atari 2600 and Colecovision, and if you think you needed imagination to play games like Monkey Island, go and take a look at games back then.  

To this day I still love to play console video games, though some of the latest things have left a bit of a bad taste in my mouth and a lot of my problems can fall back to the more modern Call of Duty games.  I've not got the time to learn maps and such for online competitive games, so I don't tend to play them much.  I'm also not much of a fan of modern settings for the most part, mainly if a game says 'it's so real' I tend to find I want to stay clear.  

Not to say that I hate them entirely, I've seen things that make me want to try the first two Modern Warfare games, they sit on the shelf waiting to be played.... of course my time has been limited and I've got to play Last of US first... and Ducktales Remastered... and Dark Souls... and Saint's Row 4 next week.... and Darksiders.... one and two... and Skyrim... ok, so it's not hard to see how I've not gotten to it as of yet :P

Ah  of course.. i played atari 2600 when i was a kid.. and i mean i really played it for years, even when the NES already was in every home (didn't had the money for buying a new console)... i was meaning more the pixel art.. looking the pixels always gave me space for imagine the scenario like they was real.. i wondered what there was behind those buildings on the background of a top gear track... you know.. even if of course was just few pixels... about modern right now i'm addicted to Awesomenauts and playing Guacamelee.. both games are 2d ^_^
