Default RPG games nowadays..

I used to play RPG games like FF7, 8, 9 and my favorite RPG is Suikoden, the storyline, the gameply, the mini game esp. the cooking game in suikoden II.. wow! i could play the whole game like 5 times and still be obsessed with it..

But now.. i couldnt play RPGs, seriously come on, look at the graphics, its beautiful, who woudnt wanna play games with graphic that looks "surreal" ...but still, to me...nope.. a waste of my money, couldnt even finish the game.. i got half way through the game only if im lucky.. after that.. nope..

im wondering what happen to me? is it that because im getting old? or getting tired n too stupid to play complicate RPGS..? i missed the old school RPGs.. and now here i am playing Ace Fishing... its nice...

Your not alone. I played all those games and Suikoden is also my favorite console RPG.

I dunno if its an age thing but my attention span certainly have diminished after i hit 30

Thankfully there are RPGs on iOS so i can wet my appetite when i feel like it.

But i seem to be playing more and more non-RPGs

and now that i have fully switched to ios gaming i play a lot of different type of games.

Even though RPGs are my favorite genre its a good thing to try different games.

For me with so many apps at my disposal i dont want huge great complicated RPG's

Aralon/Ravensword/9th Dawn are great for me, offer a lot of depth but not overly complicated. All remind me of great RPG's from the past

rpgs are so much.. i never got into those jrpgs too much.. for me it was eye of the beholder, wizardry 7, ultima series, might and magic, lands of lore.. but I understand and sympathise with you, we come from a different world even though our preferred rpgs are somwhat different.

ps: ultima as in black gate, serpent isle.. not that ultima crap they insulted us with some months ago.

modern day rpg's seem to be hit or miss for me. I'm totally with you on the psx rpg era being amazing, but there are still ones worth playing nowadays. One's that come to mind are Persona 3+4, Bravely Default, and Stick of Truth (not for everyone)

Back in the day I campleted the Baldur's Gate games, FFVII, and Secret of Mana: all long winded RPGs. I completed Fallout 3 and Mass Effect but that took me over two years

I still love RPGs I just don't have the time for them these days.

My issue is I have no desire to play anything even remotely anime. So that knocks out a ton of RPGs. Seriously, I wish I could revisit the gold box D and D games.

I have to agree with the whole "the older I get the less time I want to spend playing any 1 game in particular". I do about 99% of my gaming on iOS nowadays. I have a PS3 with games like GTA 5, The Last of Us, The Stick of Truth, Borederlands 2,and many others that even if I have the time to play them it really feels like more of a chore than fun. It just feels like such a huge time commitment to play console games. And to think just a handful of years ago I was playing WOW almost exclusively and for many hours a day, every day. I think the most time I spent playing WOW in a 24 hour span was 16 hours. It makes me cringe to think about that lol.
