I think this guy is spot on. I know as I’ve gotten older with more adult demands such as a job, house, etc., it’s been much harder to play any console games, let alone finish single-player stories or campaigns (last game I “finished” was Final Fantasy XII...still working on Halo 3).
I think this is part why I’ve gotten back more into my arcade machines, because games from back in the day are more “bite-sized” affairs. Playing a 10 minute game of Ms. Pac-Man is much easier for me than investing 30 hours in the lastest Elder Scrolls iteration. Not that I’m happy with this reality. I do wish I was back in the halcyon days of video gaming in my life when evenings consisted of free-living affairs of hours upon hours of gaming. Oh well, c’est la vie. Perhaps I’ll get back into it…just cracked open Final Fantasy XIII a few weeks ago :)
One of the best video gaming endings of all time.
Nobody cried during this ending.
