Technology is the biggest change . I see the future full of micro transactions and DLC .. SADLY

At least old gamers will drive at like 90 mph.

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.
