lol @Goldrock 1. Because the majority of games that are coming out nowadays are carbon copys of the ones released in years past. Look at Call of Duty and tell me that hasn't been copy/pasted to death. Other series are plenty guilty of it as well that's just one example, but its all part 2,3,4,5, and 6 nowadays no one makes anything original anymore so why should we be excited, and who cares.
2. Because people are steadily watching the quality of life around them in the real world dwindle so they are starting to un-plug from the matrix, and the same old bullshit that came out last year isnt getting them excited and that's not a bad thing, but if your happy to continue sitting there, so be it.
