Believe it or not, these so called next gen consoles (PS3/PS4/Xbox 360/One) is killing the gaming industry, while greedy companies such as EA and Activision earn a lot of revenue from console sales, they're dumbing down games for the already dumbed down generation (no offense to those born after 1995).
The new generation is wired very differently! Consumption has to be on demand, no patience or restraint. This is reflected even in video games. The satisfaction of winning is very easy and repetitive. Sure older generations have bent a little from the advancements of internet and technology, but they are not affected nearly as much as those grown up on the tech.
If you want a more open mind, start reading books. Instead of searching every word on google, try using a dictionary. Memorize your phone numbers! When you provide yourself with this restraint you mature differently. No offense, but growing tired of the 'younger' generation ;)
