There are still games that I find fun and exciting, just not that many of them.

Oh yea, it can still happen. I was completely blown away by Red Dead Redemption when I played that the first time. Got absorbed into the world.

I think most people's standards just get way higher once they get older. I know I played the shit out of games when I was a kid that were honestly pretty bad. I just didn't really care back then.

I would attribute the excess of FPS games to the rise in popularity of gaming in general. It's no different from Movies and Music where they got so big that there were these specific demographics that you could pander to and make a ton of money off of. That demographic for gaming is the FPS games that emphasize, somewhat, fast paced multiplayer gameplay.

A funny thing, though, is that there was only one PS4 game shown during the announcement. The other games were a puzzler, an action adventure game like crash bandicoot, another Infamous, an RPG, and what looked to be a Skyrim-esque RPG.

I'm tired of FPS games, they're all identical, heres your gun kill the badguys teabag them and cry when you get shot because your the best player and are invincible....

Bring back the fun stuff like Ps1 and early Ps2 had.

So branch out and try the games that aren't 'bro games'.

Stuff like Heavy Rain, God of War, Uncharted, Dark Souls, or one of the many indie games that are available on console. If you're a gamer with a console and can't find a 'fun' game to play, you're not trying enough.

This so much.

Anyone who complains about a lack of "good games" these days either isn't looking hard enough, or they just don't like games any more.
