"I haven’t had fun with video games in a long time. They’re almost a chore to me."

I understand the complaint, and in some ways I agree with it, but I feel there are still very much FUN games around.

Usually though, these days they seem to be found on PSN and XBLA. Games like Joe Danger, Trials Evolution, Super Meat Boy, and Motorstorm RC. Games which are both challenging AND -FUN- to play.

if they aren't fun, don't play them

I agree with what he's saying about "realism", even a really nutty game like Borderlands or Alice: Madness Returns can be designed in a way that makes sense but when you have this deadpan, serious tone all the way through the game, with "emotions", "political intrigue" and "choices" people will inevitably get sick of playing. You'll notice that the most popular programs on TV, like CSI aren't "realistic" and they mix humour and seriousness together, it's not just grinding misery and violence like in the Witcher or Mass Effect 3.
Personally I generally prefer games with little or no story or open world games where you can take off and just mess about and do story missions when you feel like it.
I thought the criticism of FC3 was a bit unfair since that's one game which does mix up humour and drama and it lets you off the leash to play the way you want to.

If they feel like a chore you are playing the same game for too long , play in small episodes and add some variety to the mix. And give some ' franchises ' a break for a year or two.
