Do you ever feel like computers aren't as much fun as they used to be?

The performance jump gap narrowing certainly has a huge impact. We hardly have any serious groundbreaking technology between so-called 'generations' anymore and everyone just focuses on capitalizing whatever being successful at that moment. Back in the 90s and early 2000s almost every other new tech item could interest you in a different way.

I see computers as tools, how excited are most people to use tools? Using tools usually means you are doing work.

Maybe not just age but i think its more of a been there done that situation. The internet was newer and more exciting and largely unexplored. I could have the time of my life playing slingo on aol.. My first real taste of online gaming. Now i would never go back and play that game.

it does seem like we did more with less back then. I think computers are fun still after all this time. I just found other things to do. I really want to game for 14hours a session and spend my weekends lost in a game or two again but I don't. It just aint the same because I've changed.

I love playing classic games and Steam would be a great platform for them

Sounds like you need to get away from the computer. If it is boring you then you probably are using it to much.

I'm less impressed with GOG than I am Steam.
