I've read some articles about the evolution of video games throughout their history, and a common trend that I noticed in the comments, was how video games now aren't as "fun" and creative,
although the graphics have advanced greatly and multiplayer has greatly enhanced and extended to consoles as well.
Do you think that video games of today are not as "fun" as they used to be? Why or why not? Vote on the poll and answer as detailed as you wish, giving examples if you so choose. 8-)

Honestly, i think they've become a lot better frankly. A lot of focus is put on bad examples like Call of Duty and what not, but gaming has come a LONG way as something beyond just something you did every now and then at the arcade. Today, gaming has become one of the best mediums of story telling there is. I mean games like The Last of Us have the most immersion I've ever seen human's manage to create when it comes to telling a story. Even the games without any story like Civilization V allow you to create your own emergent stories each and every game. The kind of mechanics and processing power that are possible today make games more interesting than ever. Graphics honestly help with that immersion.
The only issue is when a company puts more focus on graphics than they do story or gameplay. That's a legit problem today which gaming studios need to work on... But by and large, i have way more fun today playing video games than i ever have. I think when people think of the past, they just have a tendency to get over nostalgic of the old games they use to play, and i think that's largely due to the fact that their lives overall was easier/better back then, so they attribute some of those good feelings they use to have to the games they use to play, not realizing that part of why they enjoyed those games so much was because it was their first experience with gaming, and things came kinda easy back then in comparison to now. But really, i think gaming as a whole has taken great leaps forward.3
