When did gaming stop being about games?

ummm..no it doesn't. The PS2 has the best games ever. The Wii U is a footnote in gaming history.

According to a certain troll I'm in possession of a time machine, as he claims he can prove I live with my mum... who died in 2002.


You need a new gimmick.
That's called a signature. It's not supposed to change with every post. It's a little quote that GameFAQs adds automatically to the end of every post you make.

This should help clarify more: http://www.gamefaqs.com/features/help/entry.html?cat=18

Gaming is better than it's ever been.
We're finally past the phase of coming up with building blocks and are finally making what games should be, immersive experiences.

I said it's better than ever not perfect just yet.
And I've noticed most people on this board who talk crap about modern gaming don't even play those and have no clue what they're talking about.

I see last of us for example being called a linear movie full of set pieces and all the other usual criticism that is hurled at every game.
While the fact is that last of has zero set pieces, the levels are open and have a lot of ways to get through, shooting is optional and discouraged, the game has 2 hours of cutscenes and is easily a 15 hour play through.

This board is stuck so far in the past and so blinded by nostalgia to enjoy all the great new stuff that gaming has been building up to since it's inception that I feel sorry for them.

It's evolved for the better. Remember when comicbooks were for nerds only like 'gaming'? Fortunately for me, SF wasn't like the nerdiest crap out there, it was the manliest 'game' and still is. I used quotes because it's more than a 'game,' it's a way of life. The fighting spirit flows through my veins. It's a passion none of you will ever experience.
