for me personally, its that i'm getting older. days are numbered. there are many books i want to read and expand my mind that take up some would be gaming time. and just going out and being more social. but overall i still find lots of time to play games.

Well I still play games that's for sure but I don't have the time (or attention span) to play them like I used to.

The biggest problem I have with getting older is when I look back at old favorite from the N64 or PS and remember it like it was yesterday.

Then I realize that was fifteen years ago.

Time goes by too damn fast.

It's nice to see other people that feel the same way I do. One thing I have noticed in talking to my kids, other gamers, etc... is that the difference between young and old gamers is that young ones feel the Kinnect is a clunky controller with boring implementation but older gamers feel like the Kinnect is a good substitute for a workout at the gym.
