Re: My declining interest in modern video games.

I appreciate all the attention my little article has generated. It seems I am not the only one who feels this way about video games. Although I am assuming that most of you who share my sentiments are likely late thirties up to mid forties? I am 45. I'm 43. For me it started with the 2600. I then k...

Re: My declining interest in modern video games.

Welcome to the forums. What you are saying is understandable, and I often feel the same. Time becomes more important the older I get, so it's hard to justify playing for long periods of time. The newer games can take a long time to learn, and even longer to complete. Besides, if every adult played v...

Re: Best and Worst Console Designs

I like the idea. You may have your hands full, since many consoles have multiple models. You'll also have to consider whether being "big" is a good/bad factor in design. I personally like the Atari 2600 light sixer, though the controller may hold it back. Also the Genesis Model 1 (without ...

Re: No quality control

Critic, I think you have become so scorned about "online" that you are connecting dots that aren't there. We have had TV programming "as a service" (Netflix, Hulu, etc.), but the quality hasn't suffered. Have you seen Stranger Things? Modern games have bugs because they are compl...

Re: Game/Movie collection tracking app?

Good topic. I collect for EVERY system. I have tried many, many dedicated apps, but I found them all very slow to use; both in logging my collection, and in using it to search my collection at the game store. What finally worked was Excel. I just make a spreadsheet of games I already have/seek (1 ta...

Re: Vita Games?

I got about halfway through Gravity Rush, but got bored and never completed it. I know I'm in the minority, though. Also keep in mind it was remastered and released on the PS4.

Re: Vita Games?

Killzone is awesome. The online multiplayer servers were still up last time I played, with plenty of players to play against.

Re: Billy Mitchell's Scores Removed, Including Donkey Kong

There are probably a lot of other records still left in the books that are suspicious. Perhaps they may want to consider removing them all, and starting over again. Now records could be recorded with more accuracy since people can record things easily now. Then again, there have been people who were...

Re: Baseball in Decline?

I used to be a huge sports fan. I ran football fantasy leagues, listened to the Reds on the radio, and collected baseball cards. However, once I learned what sports does to people's brains (CTE) I quit pretty much cold turkey. It is morally wrong to pay to watch people destroy their brains. I've com...

Re: VGC Pro Nintendo?

I have been following your site for probably a decade. I don't sense you are slanted toward any one company. After all, you have reviews for pretty much ever system imaginable. However, you seem to have a dislike for the Internet (regardless of having a website), and as a result, you are biased agai...
