Been watching Ouran High School Host Club, and yes it's goofy and over the top, but it's hilarious!  And it's got Vic Mignogna, Junpei from P3's VA, need I say more?

Now you're tempting me.

I finished off Martian Successor Nadesico a few days ago, now I've moved on to Cowboy Bebop, which I'm up to episode 8 on. Good show, but hard to watch multiple episodes in a single day.

Tropes.  They're everywhere.  Sadly, some are to make things more exciting (why is amnesia cool?  It just isn't the same unless our hero feels the surprise like the audience) - but fuck it, speak your mind.

Anyways.  Pick anything.
I'm going with a rather recent one that needs to stop before it gets worse.
I HATE it during a 3D film or trailer when some object deliberately comes at the viewer to "show off" being 3D.  It doesn't feel like an artistically creative choice, more like a good idea that gets moviegoers to brag.  Ranges from stuff like the film title swooping in, or flying debris.  Its soo cheesy

This. A Thousand times this. I hate it when 3D movies do that. It was fun the first time, but I've seen it so many times it's long since drove me bonkers!

I also agree that the reboots need to stop.

Beat Age of Zombies earlier. Now I'm trying to figure out what else to play. Probably just more AoZ.

Thanks for the heads-up.

Super Meat Boy is super fun! Too bad I've only played the demo.

Age of Zombies is also super fun. Got it last night and I'm halfway through already. Hopefully I'll finish it before my ADD kicks in.

Exploring Carnia in Strange Journey. Glad I got back into this. I also started a new game in The Dark Spire and a new party, just so I could test out the classic mode. I kinda like it, but the music's not as good. It's also tougher to tell what I'm highlighting so I end up choosing the wrong thing.=(

I still need to beat Dark Spire. I made it to the 6th floor, then stopped playing.

If you haven't yet good luck trying to figure out how to unlock the subclasses without a guide. It's pretty much impossible to figure out on your own.

I've gotten halfway through on my first playthrough, and I can honestly say much of this game is impossible without a guide. Luckily I have no quams about using one. It's better than being frustrated, IMO.

Oh, I see. Well, I can't say I disagree, but...I also feel as if it doesn't really make a difference one way or another. You know?

I suppose not. But it's still annoying. It's like the kid who eats too much of his favorite cake then complains it doesn't taste good anymore, like it's somehow the cake's fault. No, it's still the same cake. He was just stupid and ate too much.

If I could comprehend that analogy (seriously, everyone I know either paces themselves or eats their favorite food every day and never gets sick of it!), I'm sure I would agree. I know part of the reason I don't like Pokemon is because I beat it too many times. Still, I don't enjoy it anymore because it doesn't provide what I look for in an RPG. The same with The Legend of Zelda - I never beat any Zelda game, but I now find it lacking compared to RPGs, plus I no longer care for the boring puzzles that I always needed a guide book for...not to mention there's never any story until Wind Waker and Twilight Princess (which I still kinda like). Much of what I did like about them are done better in other games.

True, but again, most people aren't posting things because they're tired of it. They're posting them because they don't like them anymore, mostly because of problems in the game that they were able to ignore the first time around.

Which is why my stance is controversial. I'm basically saying the problem isn't the game. It's the gamer.

Really? Then...I'm confused, what's wrong with that? Or rather how is that in any way a confusion? (Now I'm really confused...)

Haha, it's cool. There's nothing wrong with getting tired with a games, especially if you play them too much. It's natural and totally expected. But you don't have to stop liking them just because you're tired of it. That's my point.

My point was that you are confusing "enjoy it anymore" with "play it anymore."
Believe it or not, sometimes when you play a game enough, they lose the charm they once had.

Ding ding ding ding ding! We have a winner. I'm glad we agree.

^Aw, how nice.=)

Got my Bottom kicked in Blaster Master. I love that game, but it is hard, and I'm outta practice. Meanwhile I'm really into Strange Journey, I think I'm going to finish off Carnia tonight so I can move on to the next area.

This wasn't actually what I was angling at even if I mentioned "overplay" in my own post. I was more looking for "I loved this game otherwise but it has some huge freaking problem and now I can't enjoy it anymore."

My point was that you are confusing "enjoy it anymore" with "play it anymore."

If I don't want to play a game anymore, it's probably because I'm not enjoying it. That's why I listed Pokemon and Zelda, for instance - every time I play those games, I fall asleep because they're boring as hell. I don't know what it is I liked about them before, but I don't like them anymore. Believe it or not, sometimes when you play a game enough, they lose the charm they once had. Sometimes your tastes change as you get older. Sometimes you notice the flaws you didn't notice the first time around.

From my perspective, I don't see how anyone here is associating finishing a game with enjoying them. I think a lot of people here just really aren't enjoying those games anymore.

Did he seriously graffiti "V" on the wall like V for Vendetta?
