Game types that are rarely made anymore that you miss the most.

Lots of games types which were once common have become rare if not outright extinct: Survival horror, collect-o-thons, Japanese RPGs for consoles, etc.

I'm just going to repost what I posted in one of my previous topics:

This gen has led to the downsizing of quite a few genres. The most tragic loss for me was the 3D platformer. Games such as the Prince of Persia Trilogy and the Crystal Dynamics Tomb Raider trilogy are among my favorite games ever due to their focus on climbing, jumping, and puzzle solving as opposed to combat.

This generation has seen a severe downsizing in it. Much of the platforming is simplified, automatic, and dumbed down (Uncharted, Assassin's Creed) or only reserved for cinematic moments (Uncharted again, Tomb Raider reboot) as opposed to an integral part of the game. I hear in later Assassin's Creed games that you virtually press one button and it climbs an entire tower for you! Jesus Christ! It's like they consider climbing something to get rid of instead of part of the fun (which it is).


Games I miss:

Prince of Persia trilogy, reboot, Forgotten Sands
Tomb Raider Legend, Underworld, and Anniversary

For a pessimist, I'm pretty optimistic

I think I'm indecisive, but I'm not sure. Brubalities are the future of Mortal Kombat.
