But what keeps it going is that only a few good games are released every year. Not every game is the same. I mean once you play one fps, that doesn't mean you've played em all.

For example, how about that robocop? I don't know anyone who bought that game, yet, other fps are bought by my friends all the time. Why? Well, because robcop sucked. They genre may stay the same, but gameplay changes all the time.

Games are for those that enjoy them. In the past I would think they were meant to be for kids, but now developers are trying to get games to appeal for the older audiance, which they have and always will do. Some lose interest, some don't.

HAHAHAHAHA! What a topic to have started on GCW, the center point of almost every gamer in this world lol.

Yes Bounty I am prolly the biggest Graphics whore this world has ever seen, and I think I deserve to have my cake now, and eat it.
I have been waiting for my whole life to get the eyecandy into my gaming world (38 now) But sadly yes, I do have to agree with you about the same old gameplay in nearly every new game release.

BF1942, GTA vice and a few others have stepped out of the first person shooter syndrome to include the use of vehicles, this is good and gives the gamer some variation. But the kill, kiss or trade with em' style of game is still very much the same. Hmm there is a game that does change the rules a bit and i'll just type hint here --- Postman with a black coat lol. Not for the kiddies.

MA+ rated Gaming is most definately designed for older kids like us and then its up to us, the parents to decide the viewing for our kids. I would never let my 6 & 11 yo girls play GTA vice without me present - they drive around in the cars and bikes but do not play the story line. Then they go play Zelda and decapitate a creature or two lol.

Just my thoughts - every one has thier own gmaing view I suppose.

I found postal 2 the worst game I've ever played. Other than the long walks with no action and long loading times, the game is the most boring and repetative swarm of crap I've ever played. not to mention the shotty graphics. Went to IGN and they pointed out everything I hated about the game specifically.

1. bought game
2. installed game
3. played game for 2 hours
4. Unistalled game
5. Give to friend for free (even a dollar would be ripping him off)

Postals' 2 features are funny, but only once. After you've tried everything this game is simply boring.

yah, when I first got it, i was just lighting people on fie and pissing on em. Then played catch with the dog (using a head) for a while.

Anyways, after I got to the "cash check" part, the game completely sucked. After standing in line for 15 minutes because it kept glitching out or something. The banker kept telling me to go to the end of the line over and over when I finally got up to the counter. Had to stand in line around 6 times.
After I got to that part, the bank gets robbed. I either had to sit there forever and wait until it was resolved, or try and stop them...which the police would then go after me instead of them if I did. The game wasn't worth that much of a hassle, since the market was just the same as the bank. Plus the random back shots from the amazing appearing rioters. (I admit though, the restroom was pretty funny)

Postal 2 cannot even be considered a game. It's so horrible. I have to admit though, I don't know many people over 30 that play games. So, I guess if you consider anyone in their 20's a kid still, i'd have to agree.

I can honestly say that in 10 years, I probably won't play game nearly as much. But I still don't think all games are meant for kids.

OMFG! what a nasty topic this has turned into lol.

Qual, in 10 years you will be playing twice as many games because;
1. The money will be in greater abundance at that age.
2. You will be way to hooked to give the habbit away.
3. 4 out of 5 households will own a PC and 'gaming' will be the worlds favorite lesure time.
4. When your 30, you will see the world through a 30 year old's eyes, this will change everything that you are - attitude towards older people included.

I played postal2 through and had no probs in the bank, no glitches with the game play(after the patch) and found many ways to get through a level --- like walking on powerlines etc.
However, the game has no replay value and the mod's available are not worth a complete replay. But the pure sickness of this game compelled me to buy it anyway. lol.

To finalise my comment, I do think games are for kids BUT! only the ones that are rated so. If the game is rated MA-15+ or R, then the target audience was never intended for children.
My local game retailer & game hire store ask for ID to rent out any MA or R material - I was very pleased with that attitude.

Ps. Ive been playing heaps of online' Freelancer lately, not bad - any comments? Post away lol.

I might play a game once a week, now. The only game I can see myslef play in the future are multiplayer online fps's, or rpgs. There are only a hand full of rpg's that I will play.

I personally am one of the elders of these forums and I dont feel insecure in saying that I like to play console games and the occasional PC game. I like games that have good stories (like some RPG's) and I also enjoy seeing what this particular year has brought to us with graphics.

I have also found that PS2/Xbox Parties are always great fun. Especially with a seemingly endless supply of beer. Mix in a nice BBQ and your all set.

I kinda get the feelin that maybe Bounty's wife or girlfriend may have a hand in his sudden change of heart. If not, then do as you like man, but I dont think your right.
