I'd fall in love with some game... Any game... But the games are nothing like what they used to be. I miss the days of what people called cloneloft and their uncharted, FF, FPS, Action RPGs where you paid full price for them and got a pretty dam awesome game.

Now days it's all these free games with different money's, timers, IAPs and online clash of clans clones or some card playing crap.

I truly hope things swing back to full developed paid games. I haven't played a game longer than 15 mins in over the last year and haven't been stoked about any games in the future. Depressing actually. Almost feels like mobile gaming is something of a joke... After thought.

I hear you loud and clear. Mobile games(a lot of them) are going the way of timers, energy systems and multiple in game currencies with bite sized missions. Ie: Unkilled, Sniper Fury, Major Gun 2, Modern Combat 5 to a lesser extent. I miss the days of getting a complete quality game...Splinter Cell Conviction was one great game from Gameloft.
