IMO videogames peaked in the mid 2000s. The only games I still play from time to time are nhl 05, gta san andreas, and some tony hawk games. underground 2 was the best. amped 2 is also the best sports game of all time.
also I didn't read op.
new video games are pretty much fucking gay though except for skate I guess. and gta V is gonna be the titties
