Don't use the internet
Turn off autosave
Actually enjoy a game rather than worrying about other people making memes out of it
Graphics are fine
Multiplayer shouldn't make or break a game
Be smart enough to leave your controllers in a memorable playce (I.E charging dock)

There, that should fix it...

Also why is this content focusing so much on Bethesda? Someone extremely butthurt over them?

You can really tell this was created by a nostalgia fag, i played a lot of games when i was younger and not one of them was able to immerse me like modern games, like how on fallout new vegas when i found those two guys kidnapping families and children then selling them on as sex slaves. I made sure i killed the two guys then i used their sales book to find every ****** who bought people from them and murdered them. Old games were great but for immersion modern games have old games beat hands down.

Gaming technology has improved and the gaming community has opened up and started sharing experiences.

Graphics and textures are starting to follow the uncanny valley, leading to why people hate them so much
#75 to #72 - defacedcreeper (12/29/2012) [-]
then you hit the Uncanny valley, the big drop in the graph. This is where you get stuff that is trying too hard to look realistic and you can clearly see through its guise. This would be like Call of Duty textures and such. I think this is self evident. But then you start climbing out of the uncanny valley. Like the ultra hi-res Skyrim graphics. They look like nature and as if they where never in a video game at all.

This post seems to be complaining about the advances in technology now. I don't look at these new games and think "meh" I think that the world of video games has reached a great point.

I don't know about you, but when I didn't know what to do on my games back then, I was stuck for weeks. If I was lucky, i'd have a friend who knew exactly what to do. Multiplayer shouldn't be the factor that decides if a game is enjoyable or not, and there is a difference between Online and Local.

As for the one about saving and passwords? What the **** does keeping a notepad about your passwords have to do with autosaving? Regardless, when I used to play my old pokemon games i'd save every 10 minutes, just because I thought i'd **** something up somehow.


Tl;dr
Nostalgia fag, shut the **** up.

I consider myself a true gamer, been playing since my parents bought me an NES when I was 4 and I haven't stopped.  These things may be true for younger gamers but as an adult allow me to respond to each individually;   
   
• I only resort to using the internet for the answers to puzzles when I am desperate, just like buying a magazine or players guide back when Nintendo Power was the only game in town.   
   
• Ya, I'm sure I'm guilty of this.   
   
• Man do I get immersed in games, it's what makes them so fun.  I enjoy developers that create a game in witch I care about the characters and world.   
   
• I am constantly impressed with the visuals of modern games and continue to play retro games.   
   
•  Multiplayer is still only fun when you play with friends.  There are still far too many idiots and assholes among the masses of players.  The fact that there's no consequences for immature and disruptive behavior in games as there is in real life those people use it as an excuse to get away with douchbaggery.   
   
• I lose my controllers so much that I have three, that way i have options.   
   
TL/DR: Might be true for young gamers, not so much for adult gamers.

Maybe the developers realized that people were feeling accomplished for sitting in front of a TV for hours on end playing video games instead of doing something useful. So they made games easier so you wouldn't feel some undeserved sense of reward.

I too cried the day every N64 exploded, rendering them unplayable.

...What, you mean that didn't happen? You can still play old games? Then the **** is the point of this post OP?
