    It's like 3-4 AAA titles being released yearly and that's that.

    Welcome to Earth 1. On our Earth we have lots of AAA titles released per year. I'm sad to hear that on Earth 3, there are only 3-4 titles per year.

    Developers don't want to release games at the end of a console generation

    Seems in the future upgrading PC will be only worth to run emulators to play old games.

    Instead of buying a new game you can buy multiple 2-3 years old games in a discount.

    Those links were kinda TL;DR for me but 2012/2013 had GTAV, BioShock Infinite, The Last of Us, Mass Effect 3, Dishonored, etc. A bunch more AAA games being released compared to now.

    It's exactly what I'm doing with my new PC, mostly emulating 3DS stuff.

    Fall has been pretty depressing. Ancestor's Odyssey failed hard, Greedfall and Outer Worlds were both dull as rocks, Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC seems pretty mediocre so far... Only Disco Disco has delivered, but it's a fairly short game, so ... On to April.

    This is the longest I've gone without an upgrade in my 25 years of putting my own computers together.

    My processor is now 8 years old (i5 3570k). It's not a money issue, but a lack of interest issue. Big-ticket games are all shit and, even if I were to like shit, they still run well enough on my rig (I do have a 1070). Technological stagnation coupled with a lack of ideas and a bottom-feeding "indie" development scene has led me to an all-time low interest in playing computer games. I'm also getting old, pushing 40. There are (too) many older games that I still haven't completed, not to mention emulation, which is probably what I spend the most of my very rare gaming time these days.

    Whenever I think about dropping a couple grand on an upgrade some better application for that cash immediately springs to mind. Some small improvement for my apartment (a new door for the bathroom! a new couch! etc), even spending it all taking my girl out for dinner seems like a much better proposition. I don't see that changing anytime soon.

    Developers don't really want to release games at the start of one either. It's why people end up buying shit like Knack and Ryse Son of Rome.

    I've largely become apathetic to new releases, being far more interested in older classics, so I don't see much reason to upgrade for the foreseeable future. My vidya fund has become my whiskey fund.

    Indeed, if I were to upgrade, it would be for emulation.

    Rimworld was released late last year and I just got it. Some indie games are great.
