I think the problem lies with an overabundance of technology that has left most of us feeling jaded when it comes to video games (which also gave birth to the hipster generation). In the early-mid 90's you were either on team Nintendo or team Sega. Nobody had both unless their parents were filthy rich. Today there are many many people who own two consoles or are apart of the PSWii 60 club. The internet has played a large role in bringing content to us instantaneously and with it our desire for gaming has become more and more spoiled. Ever hear your grandparents complain about how spoiled kids are? That's because it's true. I could play TMNT IV: Turtles in Time on my SNES again and again and again and never get bored. Now I can't even collect 100% of my trophies without feeling the need to move onto something else. As we get access to more and more content faster and faster with our own money, we no longer feel as passionate as we did 10-15 years ago. Because back then all we had were a couple games untill your parents bought you a new one around your birthday and Christmas. We were more fortunate with what we had because it would take much longer before moving onto something else. Today we have so much! A console provides us with so much more than simply running the game you inserted into the top. And it's turned us into spoiled, jaded gamers.
