I agree with the Roast Beast wholeheartedly on this issue.
Finding fault in games that were perfectly fine the first time around seems to be a wasteful use of time. It's like going back and tinkering with all those wonderful childhood memories so they longer exist. It's not the games that are at fault here. It's the players who are going back expecting the same thing they got 5, 10, maybe 15 years ago.
I have many fond memories of games like Final Fantasy IV, Chrono Trigger, LOZ: ALTTP, etc. If I were to go back and play them again, I probably wouldn't enjoy therm as much. It doesn't mean these games now suck(or sucked all along). It means what I look for out of games has changed from what it was back then . I'd rather keep my pleasant memories intact than spend inordinate amounts of time dissecting games to find out how bad they may have been.

I heard daybreakers IS a good movie and we'll watch that next.

The wife and I are horror aficionados. Daybreakers was good, but not great. It was an interesting take on the whole vampire mythology, but fell apart in a few areas. Better than a lot of the junk released as "horror" nowadays, though.

I watched Cool Hand Luke last night. Great movie. Paul Newman was really good in it. Much more than just a prison movie.

Well, you could try planting them in the tilled garden right beside your house. :P

Thanks for making me look and feel like an idiot. Apparently, I am, though, so that's OK. I never noticed any garden area next to my house. The game has yet to mention it, so it simply never occurred to me. I've been getting tutorials for everything else you would think there would be a "how to garden" tutorial or something.
This is intensely ironic, for those that know me outside of gaming.

I think I play-through MAYBE +/-5 games a year. This is actually higher than when I was mostly playing 60+ hour rpgs. I could beat maybe 3 rpgs in a year. Now I play 15 hr action/adventure games and such.
hmmm, what did I play this year?
Dragon Age
Mass Effect 2
God of War 3
Metroid: Other M
Dabbled with Infamous and Bayonetta, but only played halfway through each
played FFXIII for about 5 hrs, then stopped.
now about 10 hrs into Neir.
I am able to play games +/-10 hrs a week. 
Such is the life of a man with a wife, a kid, a job, a garden, etc. etc,. etc.

When do I get to do something with all these seeds I have?

The obvious response is "next to your house" but then I realize "holy fuck, what ARE these seeds for?" and I realize I have no idea what any of this means anyway.

and then I realize that I don't realize shit

and then I realize

I am still playing this game religiously.  What the fuck is this shit?  Swear words+

That.....didn't answer the question.
Soooooo, seeds. What do I do with them? Will the game tell me eventually?

1.Mass Effect 2 - duh.

I'm only 10 hours into Neir, but I can see it ranking high. Good game so far.
Only played about 4 hours of FF XIII. I actually liked what I played. Not sure if I'll get back to it, though.
Haven't played any other rpgs this year. Too many good games in other genres.

2062  Media / General Games / Re: Have you "RPG'd yourself out of other genres"? on: December 16, 2010, 10:47:45 AM
Before the current generation I was very much a rpg player and not much else. Ever since I got a 360, then a PS3, I play mostly non-rpgs. Mostly because so few GOOD rpgs are released anymore. I love a good mix of action with my rpg, and games like ME give me that. I'm really no longer interested in slower-paced, super long, turn-based games.
Unfortunately, I am not very good at action-oriented games, so I have to play them on easy to enjoy them.
Also, like Kup, I focus on one game at a time. This way I actually beat them, and feel good about myself. Playing all sorts of games at once, and never finishing anything, is ridiculously unsatisfying.
2063  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nier on: December 16, 2010, 10:10:53 AM
OK, so I'm really digging this game now. I'm used to the battles and the graphics so that's a moot point now.
I'm really intrigued as to where this whole father/daughter dynamic is going to go. I have some ideas, and most are not uplifting.
Hell, I very well might keep going(meaning after beating it once) with this thing. I'm getting Uncharted 2 next week, but have zero interest in it right now.
When do I get to do something with all these seeds I have?

2064  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: FFIV Complete Collection for PSP on: December 16, 2010, 10:02:17 AM
I'd like to decide how good it is on my own, so I'll still be getting it.
Statements like this are silly.
So do you buy every game that your interested in just to see if it's good? That would be ridiculous. At some point, reviews and general comments by others who have played the game HAVE to come into play.
If a game I am interested in is getting universally awful or mediocre reviews , I'm going to be bummed, but I'll move on. No way am I buying it just to decide on my own.
Now, if renting is a possibility, then that would make sense.

Nier - I'm starting to understand why this game seems to have the following it does.
Now that I've gotten used to everything, I am enjoying it quite a bit. All those silly little side quests are addicting.
The soundtrack is so great. I look forward to visiting new areas just to hear what the music will sound like.
I'm wondering when I get to do something with all these seeds I've got. I want to grow some pumpkins!
Plus, I discovered last night that there is a weapon upgrade system in this game. I played through the Junk Heap scenario. Too bad the stupid game automatically upgraded the wrong weapon.
Tons of stuff to do. I'm hooked.

Kick ass about ME3. Sadly, these are the only games I get genuinely excited about anymore.
I still need to get some of the DLC for ME2.
They NEED to find a new way to do the whole mineral finding thing. Personally, I actually liked the stupid Mako more than the planet scanning of 2.
They need to just integrate it into the regular areas, and not have it be a separate thing.
2067  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The 2011 Thread on: December 12, 2010, 03:09:34 PM
I'm a bit pickier than some of you, but it's still looking pretty solid for 2011.
The biggies for me are:
Dead Space 2
The Last Guardian
Uncharted 3

Plus, there will always be those games that you didn't know or expect to be great.
Heck, I'm still trying to play catch up on the great games of 2009 and 10.
2068  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: JRPGs - Deep, Medium, or "Lite" stories? on: December 12, 2010, 12:11:55 PM
I have almost always preferred "dark" and more serious stories with a little bit of lightheartedness thrown in to break up the tension. Too bad this type is pretty much non-existent nowadays.
I think of the lunar games as an example. Great writing, humor, world ending scenario, etc.
The only games I've played in the past couple years that count are not jrpgs. The ME games, and maybe Dragon Age.
Abyss was good, but still had a lot of cheese.
Nier feels like it may qualify.
2069  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nier on: December 12, 2010, 12:03:23 PM
Some of us barely have time for a first play through, let alone a second. I guarantee you, no matter how much I like it, a second play through will not happen. A game should be great the first time around.
I've only played for a few hours myself. Graphics are weak, music is great(as expected), battle system is clunky, and the story is intriguing. We'll see.

Yeah, she was pretty good in Adventureland. Heck, I find her pretty attractive, actually. But truth be told, I've always preferred the dark hair/pale skin look.
