We don't always have the same love affair with the same genre. Our tastes can change over time, so have you abandoned a category you once adored?
Sad that JRPGs never truly matured. In fact now the genre's been taken over by Moe.
their is still Atlus and the MegaTen games. "Moe" is keeping me away from the Atelier games. but if it is game with "all age" charm like NiNoKuni then I can try it out
Getting back to turn-based would be HUGE. That was the majority of what I used to play. Now, I'm left with nothing but sports games, the occasional action-RPG, and my huge backlog of old games. I just recently played Dragon Quest 1-3, and Phantasy Star 1. Playing Phantasy Star 2, and Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon, now. Seriously, the massive amount of time to dent my backlog is the "best" thing about this generation. I really don't see things changing next gen, either.
really beginning to outgrow hack n slash. back in the day there was not a single game on ps2 i loved more than the God of war series. flash forward to today and i couldnt even bring myself to finish beyonetta. Still working on God of war 3(though that one, im still kind of a sucker for). Havent even thought about buying MGS rising, in spite of the fact that Raiden is my gaming HERO! Ive also bought ninja gaiden 2 multiple times, promising myself that ill finish it up before trading it in. Never seems to happen. Being a former hack n slash junkie, i can see why people have so much fun with it. but theres just something about the high speed adrenaline fueled gameplay that....totally doesnt activate my gaming-boner anymore.
