    It's not an endearing term.

    Even decline tards recognise the continuing decline:

    The Decline of Gaming - YouTube

    To this..."person", Bioshock, Oblivion, Half-Life 2, Halo 3 and Skyrim was peak gaming. He argues the past ten years have been decline. While pedestalizing those particular games is incredibly dumb as they were variably decline incarnate in themselves, things have declined even from that incredible low standard. Even this mediocre gaymer recognises patterns of decline, providing clear evidence such as constant remasters, endless rereleases, microtansactions, corporatization, buggy releases, and stale shit formulas.

    If this low standards dullard can recognize patterns of the decline, what is your excuse deniers and enablers of the 'dex?

    Edit: wow the vid has 4 million views and general reception seems to be in agreement. actually shocked.

    The Codex is full of millennials. Are you surprised that they have terrible opinions on things?

    I heard a lot of post gen X just chuck games away after they're done eith a single playthrough. That can't be right or a majority. That's Bourbon Legend right? I'll ask SamDrunkard.

    The same exact thing applies to codex except they're older milennials so go back about 5 years to Morrowind, Half-Life, and Halo.

    Well, people wrote about the general decline of gaming as far back as in 1999. Check out this article from Adventure Classic Gaming (admittedly, changing "industry trends" hit adventure games at least as hard as RPGs, if not harder).

    Why bother playing old adventure games?

    Complaining that adventure games don't require typing anymore. Good. That was shit and I'm glad it's gone.

    Interestingly enough, in 1999 (end of '90s and early '00s) there was a real reinassance of text based adventures (that at this time changed the name in "interactive fictions"). This wasn't just a nostalgic fad, but a significant evolution from the classic era. A real explosion in both quantity and quality of games. Paradoxically this was possible exacly because IF shifted completely outside the commercial attention and the "industry trends".
