That's true, they were probably planning to sell the more interesting stuff later on as dlc and microtransactions.

@RogerRoger This was a good idea about the trophy data, I had to look through an old account, but my trophy data states that I

Started Skyrim
Played MGS2 & MGS3 HD
Finished off Arkham Asylum
And dipped my toes into Doom 3

Slightly better than I remember along with the other titles in my previous post, and one thing I noticed I used to start a lot of games and never come close to finishing them.

This would have been in the year after I left uni. I'm trying to think what I would have been playing that year but I don't think it was much to be honest. I believe I was well into my year long marathon of the entire star trek series at this time.

I remember I had a diddy CRT TV hooked up to watch Star Trek on (just so I could get the full experience, I got totally lost in that little tube).

I think the only game I can remember really playing around that time and on that TV was Links Awakening DX, the GBC version on the game boy player on GameCube. I played it from the beginning and finally finished it that time. I remember I got stuck on it when I was a kid but I'm glad I revisited it as a proto-adult because it was so good.

This was in my final year of university so probably a historical low for me regarding interest in gaming.

That said, I did manage to get some mileage out of my Wii, DS and PS1:

  • Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword was probably the biggest new title for me at the time.
  • I was likely still playing a large amount of Pokemon White and HeartGold from the years prior.
  • I frequently played Mario Kart Wii and Mario Party 8 with my housemates.
  • Some university friends and I had some great times attempting to speedrun Final Fantasy VII and VIII.

Previously "timleon" and "HunterLeon"

Currently playing: Pokemon Brilliant Diamond, Shin Megami Tensei V, Ghost of Tsushima

i was playing BF3 with buddies, i was above average at it. never any good at CoD and saw many a cheater, too. but i put in close to 5000 hours or more maybe, in left 4 dead series. it got to where i quit playing versus mode because a) with that many hours you're gonna be good and i never lost a match, b) ppl rage quit so often that ppl quit out by mid-level two lol. was the only game i was "really good" at and that "pro player" experience has now transferred well to the new Back 4 Blood game.

i was also tinkering with minecraft when it first came out on xbox 360. i was still playing terror hunt in rainbow six 1 and 2. i was play the ghostbusters game and the sega genesis collection. until i got ps4 in 2014 and then traded it to a game store for a new ps4 pro in 2015 if i recall.

hate to say it, but.. i was having more fun with gams 10 years ago as opposed to today, to be honest.

The Nintendo Switch is the only console that predicts its own future... after 5 years of nothing but weaboo games, you're ready to switch to another console!

@Pixelated Terrorist hunt in Rainbow Six Vegas 2 was a bloody good time. Used to play it all the time with my brother back then. We don't see many games like this anymore these days, which is too bad.

It was my first year working as a doctor and I was living in hospital accommodation at the time where I couldn't hook my PS3 up to the internet (although I later found out a way to do it..)

So off the top of my head I can remember two games from that time;

Skyrim - other people have already mentioned the game but I remember it from that time as I wasn't able to download any patches so had awful issues with the game where the save file grew to a ridiculous size and the frame rate would completely tank during the game. I also remember I was on my second rotation of the year in a surgical job not long after the game had come out and I woke up one morning feeling awful, vomited but then felt fine so went into work. One of the nurses instantly sent me home and I wasn't allowed back for two days so got to play the game instead

Mass Effect 3 - again, being unable to get online meant I couldn't get the full number of "war assets" to get the best ending for the game.

My trophy list also seems to show Portal 2, Rayman Origins, Dishonored, and Journey. I remember playing some of the co-op of Portal with my housemate but wouldn't have remembered any of the others from that time particularly.

i feel like games have gotten worse in the last decade. they wont make another game like the R6 series, either, apparently. they wanna keep ONE game stagnating for YEARS and then make a stupid zombie R6 game? lol huh?! i was having way more fun back in 2010 with games, to be honest. last game i played here recently that really drew me in and made me excited to get home and play it is "Deep Rock Galactic"

@Pixelated I think one of the main issues with games these days is that developers are under the assumption that they have to make them more and more complicated. There are so many various progression systems and different mechanics integrated in games nowadays in order to keep people's interests up instead of just making simple experiences and having people play them because they're, you know, fun.

I have nothing against this as I enjoy more depth to my games, but I definitely miss when games were more simple and pure fun.

@LtSarge Great comment. My personal feeling definitely aligns with your thoughts there. đź‘Ź

@LtSarge right... contra on the NES is still more fun today than slogging thru a 60 hour assassins creed lol. to me any way. they want play length time, they want eyeballs on the game for long periods of time so they can slip in their micros and now NFTs. instead of making multiple games, part 1, part 2, etc.. seems they want to keep ONE game then bolt on crap to it for the rest of the console's generation.. 5-8 years. they've been doin this with r6 siege for years now and its ridiculous. i was excited about remakes and remasters.. but now.. im tired of them. i want NEW games and.. we're hardly getting any.

@Pixelated Although I wholeheartedly agree with your sentiments there about these crazy long games as a service, never ending microtransaction laden sink holes, I must say that there are plenty of new game experiences too. Yes, there are a ton of these huge GTA Online wannabes and Fortnite clones, as well as oodles of remasters, remakes, and sequels. But don’t forget we do actually have boatloads of new IP of all varieties — Kena, Returnal, Bugsnax, The Pathless, Hades, The Pedestrian, Deathloop… and not too long ago end of last gen - Ghost of Tsushima, Death Stranding, Disco Elysium…
And coming soon - Forspoken, Project Eve, Sifu, Elden Ring, Babylon’s Fall, Ghostwire Tokyo…

The sequels, remakes, and licensed games get a lot of the press, but there are new experiences to be found if you look for them.

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.
