old gamer, waiting for...
Half-Life 3 ...
I'm so jaded with FPS gaming, this release just sailed by me (apart from this comment, which will get voted down)
I kinda stopped FPS gaming and most gaming in general, with two exceptions - anything Valve release and any GTA title which Rockstar release. (oh - and minecraft)
After being a gamer for ... shit, 32 years? ... I'm a redundant old school gamer resting on past glories and completely missing the point - I'll admit that.
But Portal2 ? Shit, blew my mind, such an awesome game. GTA San Andreas and to a lesser extent, GTA IV also just made me feel like a young gamer again - like the first time I played Doom and the time my mind was shattered by Quake I and Quakeworld!
I tried MW2 and it left me cold, I kept thinking "where's the humour? I've been here before, haven't I? - Oh yes, the original COD, I remember now"
I recently made a big mistake and bought Id Software's RAGE - played for 30 minutes and was completely uninspired by it.
So, vote me down, this old man who was schooled in the art of gaming in the arcades, shooting blips on a screen - I've lost touch with gaming ... except for Portal2 and GTA - hell YEAH!
I'll get my coat.
