I seem to only play and re-play older games now, I lack the drive to jump on each new mega game as it comes out, I haven't played the last two Resident Evil games and one time I used to wait with baited breath for each new one, I even bought a Dreamcast so I could play Code Veronica since it was system exclusive back then.

I'm a big Final Fantasy fan from years ago but the celebration one that just came out doesn't really interest me and I am not even sure I will try FF15 when it finally comes. Skyrim held my attention for just two weeks whereas Morrowind years ago had me addicted for months.

I guess I'm just getting old and set in my ways.

Moved the PS4 into the family room to take advantage of the big TV, having a smartphone has changed things a bit, noticed how much more I'm using online stories (origin, PSN, steam extra) rather then buying hard copies of games now, how much DLC value and pre-order bonuses are changing the way I buy

In terms of games, less JRPG's, hack and slashes, strategy and shooteers then before. My games tend to RPG's, action/platforming, co-op games nowadays
