Where are all the games?

Talking to my brother the other day, I realized I hadn’t used my Wii in about 2 years, my 360 in well over a year and sparsely use my PS3.  Even my PC games are limited (though I play them more for the mobility).

Here’s a list of the PS3 games I’ve played in the last 12 months.

  • Uncharted 3
  • Batman: Arkham City
  • Infamous 2
  • Deus Ex

The kicker is that they all came out within 30 days of each other.  I did get Skyrim on my PC (the bugs on consoles and lack of mods is annoying) but other than that, I can’t think of another PS3 game I would want.  I dislike FPS games and CoD is one of the worst offenders.  I won’t by any more EA games, so Mass Effect is off the table.  Kingdoms of Amalur is an EA game too and sounds pretty good but it’s cut.

I’m left with indy games and MMOs.  SWTOR was a breath of fresh air while leveling and then tried to compete in a saturated market at max level.  Rift is solid.  WoW has some crack thing going for it, where everything just works.  Grimrock is crazy solid fun.  Remanum has a nice market game (and I love numbers).  There just seems to be less to look forward to, though perhaps it’s just nostalgia.

Good Old Games has made a lot of money off me, simply because the games there are almost all AAA quality, take hours to complete and really contrast the crap that we have to wade through these days.  Odd that I look forward to the past.
