Yeah, I’m a bit of a girny cunt just now.
For whatever reason, no game is blowing my skirt up at the moment.
Don’t even have the desire to dig into a lot of games I have sitting.
A lot of wasted wages just sitting there, un-played.
It’s opposite of ( me personally ) gaming at 10/11/12 years old.
Where you saved up your pittance of a pocket money or outright begged your parents to give you 2:99 to go and get that new dizzy game.
The one that’s lurking tantalisingly behind that glass case in the chemist.
Yes, you read that right.
It was the chemist in my town that sold the games.
Anyway, I think the over abundance and saturation has a lot to do with it.
There’s just so many games available now and as a working adult, easily attainable.
I’m wondering if that’s part of the problem too?
Was I just more selective when I was skint?
Did I play games more as they meant a great deal more to me as they were harder to get?
Are games just shit now?
A combination of the above I think.
I find it easier to criticise a game now as I expect more.
Partially my fault for being so susceptible to the hype.
Problems with games are also subjective.
For example, as a passionate platform game player/designer, I find fault with level design in platform games that others may not even perceive as faults.
Uncharted, I’m looking at you!
You can drop 10 feet from a balcony, make a stealth kill and go on your merry way as that’s the way the narrative wants you to go but you dare step off a 2 foot step, literally up to your shins and you die from falling as you’re not meant to go that way?
Naw, no having that. Wall it off cunts!
Anyway, no real point to this, better oot than in!
It’s my site and I’ll post shite if I want to lol.
It is called girny gamer after all!
