Layton Shumway: Growing up means less time for games. But it also means new and different gaming experiences. And that's a good thing.
I'm all for shorter games. They're quicker to complete, and they slot better into a busy schedule. Plus, I feel like they can be a bit more experimental, as they're generally a small investment for game companies.
I'm in the exact same boat. When I was younger, I used to love JRPGs...and RPGs in general. Nowadays, I don't have the time, but I've also discovered new games because of that. I'm playing a lot of Tilt to Live on my iPad these days, cause I can do a game in 2-4 minutes....
...Wait, why are you on N4G? .....
Wow....Minecraft has gotten more popular than most retail games. xD I've been playing Minecraft since before he had the difficulty toggle. >_> I'll second "I hate when real life gets in the way of my gaming." Ever since I started college, I've practically forgotten all about my PS3/PC games. I'm gonna die when Black Ops comes out.... But I totally agree with this article...... I threw an emulator on my PSP to try to finish up FF2(J) during one of my 3 hour breaks between classes. I wouldn't have been playing FF2 if it weren't for college.....
My work and my girlfriend are killing my gaming life
Ah yes. We all feel this pain. But it does make the time we do get to spend gaming just a bit sweeter.
I would play MMOs if I had the time.
