Dont be putting words in my mouth.

I got 'lost' in that I didnt know what to do with the lights, electricity, power generators, doors, to get me to the next place (in other words, stupid puzzles) in Alien Isolation (I think thats the game).

And, for the record, I have never said I like non-linear games.
I prefer old school First Person Shooters and Racing games, which tend to be more on the linear side.
Even when they are linear, I still prefer multiple ways to get to the objective though.

Lately, I have been branching out to MMO's (still shooters, or mele, but are way more open world), and other games that dont require twitch reflexes, because I am getting old, and my hand eye coordination has slowed, and the meds I am on make me stupid like a cut down tree trunk.
But, even with these types of games, I let others lead, as I get 'lost' or lead the wrong direction or do something stupid like lead us off a cliff to our deaths.

So, no, you are wrong.

Even so, people change. I used to mostly play first person shooters, but nowadays I'm more into RPGs or any game with great storytelling and atmosphere.

Yeah, strategy, card games, turn based, and pixel games I stay away from, religously.
I doubt I will ever enjoy any of those game types.

As for people change, yes, thats true.
But, for me, it is the gaming industry that is changing, trying to meld (sometimes for the better, sometimes not) genres together, to make more of an audience play, for more $$$$
Cant blame them, but grr, I still want my fast paced old school games.

Seeing the Hexen games and Strife, the gaming industry was always trying to meld genres, and it didn't make games much slower paced.

And every game in the Hexen/Heretic series and Strife were all designed in the previous millennium. Back when gaming was reserved for basement nerds and the game industry as a whole was still getting on its feet.

Dave has a point, today the cost of games has driven publishers to try to appeal games to as broad an audience as it can to turn a profit. In turn this means that it takes a lot of elements from different genres to appeal to anyone, and this means that pure single-genre niche games are getting rare. A lot of existing game franchises suffer from being mainstreamed in a bid to appeal to a bigger audience. And it may or may not work, but it alienates the core fanbase. Dave considers himself part of the core fanbase of the arcade shooter genre, and I get how he feels alienated.

I get what the industry is doing, I'm just saying that genre melding really begun so early back in the day. Just because there are genre-bending features in a game, doesn't mean it automatically must become slower.

YouTube Video: Watch Teens play DooM (1993)


I don't know why I enjoy watching these videos so much. But... damn... this makes me feel old. It's hard to fathom that we live in an age where people have never heard of DooM before and don't know what a floppy disk is

It's scripted and fake. Everyone knows that teens these days would say it "looks fake as fuck and plays like", then tell me to stop bothering them while they're playing Minecraft.

I don't think this is just confined to the US, but teens everywhere that are exposed to Minecraft at a young age.

How do you use minecraft? Can it excrete feces? So many unanswered questions.

Brutal doom 2 sucks, like its predecessor.

The quick weapon switches in this vid remind me a bit of Quake. Is it just me, or doomguy runs faster in sp than in the beta versus?

It hit 200 FPS? Jesus Christ. The 1080 should be called the perverter and defiler of PC games. Get your GeForce GTX Perverter and Defiler of PC Games May 27th for $599 MSRP.
