Default Gaming has changed!

Gaming has changed. It's no longer about fun, challenges, or storytelling. It's an endless series of point whoring done by gamers on machines. Gaming - and its consumption of life - has become a well-oiled machine.

Gaming has changed. ID-tagged gamers play on ID-tagged consoles, use ID-tagged accounts. Specifications inside their save files enhance and regulate their rewards. Trophy control. Gamerscore control. Parental control. Region-specific differences control. Everything is monitored and kept under control.

Gaming has changed. The age of next-gen promises has become the age of control... All in the name of averting catastrophe from casual gaming and waggle. And he who controls the most features... Controls the console war.

Gaming has changed. When the consoles are under total control... ...Gaming becomes routine.

That's nothing but a bunch of communist bullshit.

Capitalism has changed gaming, for the worse though? Yeah, probably. But there still are tons of great games out there, you just have to look harder, don't follow trends, buy what you want to buy. And about gaming becoming a routine, it's what you make of it, so that's nothing but a bunch of crap.

Let just go back to the beginning at start playing dice and paper role-playing games. They were before computers; the first rpg. They are the basis for games like Baldur's Gate. Great games to play. Try it.

I've never cared much for games - paper or otherwise. I do enjoy certain ones though. I think that the only game that I'm really attached to is Tetris.
