  1. I miss the challenge of puzzles and figuring your way around the game. Take morrowind for example. I had to listen, ask people for directions. Get immersed. Nowadays it’s all bout following the arrow blindly. I loved some old games with puzzle element where you had to find or give things to people and there was no easy way of finding answers. Maybe your friends knew? Maybe you had to come back to it after few days and get that shot of dopamine after finally figuring it out. On top of everything what others said already too. But also I miss the good reps of companies that gave in to the shitty business models and unreliable deliveries. I used to get excited about new bioware game, or bethesda or ..some EA…and few that have gone away as well with time. Been a while since I got really hyped up about a new game or series.

  2. Dlcs back them were called expansions and were actuall expansions with like one fourth or one fifth the size of the base game.

    Microtransactions were non existent

    Games that had campaigns, freeform singleplayer and several ways of playing multiplayer.

    A lot less focus on graphics over gameplay

  3. Games were cheaper to make which meant developers could do more creative things with them. Also you typically had to wait 2 years between releases. Nowadays you get one Elder Scrolls game per decade

  4. PS3 XBOX360 era when many cinematic games like Assassin’s Creed, Uncharted, Red Dead Redemption, etc, were released or in development.

    Now they are making a lot of remakes and sequels of such games, I’m not saying those are not good or anything, but I just don’t get the hype anymore

  5. Might be a little more than 10 years ago. But I miss not being able to google something whenever you get stuck. I remember my friends and I would be stuck on a level or not know what to do next for literally a month. Now if I don’t know where to go I google it in under 5 min.

    It was a simpler time.

  6. I was in high school 10 years ago so I miss everyone having the games and playing together. It’s not quite the same when there’s no friends to play with
