Games...are they missing enjoyment?

Is that the best way to explain this post?

Last Sunday I went to go and see Transformers : Dark Side Of The Moon. BAYGASM!!!! Now this was my introduction to the Transformers series, although I sat through half of number 1, then fell asleep though not by choice, and forgot everything that happened.

My friend and I went the whole shebang (is that one word?). 3-D, Imax, 7 popcorn etc etc. I was utterly astounded. Fine the story wasn't great, and the acting was average, but watching giant, CGI, robots that transform halfway into robot from car, than back to car, gave me a sense of enjoyment I haven't felt in a long time.

Not since I was playing Rayman Advance on my GameBoy Advance did I feel this pure, raw enjoyment. I was like a 4-year old chasing fireflies...I wonder if kids still do that. My mouth dropped and I felt a tingle...no not a tingle, a shock run through my body for two-thirds of the movie, and not just when Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was on (I apologise for any female readers, but forgive my primitive, 14 year old, male instincts.)

Randomness is so awesome.

Anyway back to buisness, if you call the moronic rantings of a 14 year old boy who has longer hair than his sister, buisness.

Where's that feeling gone? That delicious, incredible feeling that makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside when you get something that is someone has poured their soul into and so, you appreciate it to the fullest extent that exists?

When I was young, I don't remember moaning about patches or bugs or poor enemy AI, I took the game for what it was rather than what it could be. I guess that's the main problem. Maybe I just expect too much.

I don't know. I'm really confused. Maybe I should just start playing RPG's more.

Alright, let's try this again.

My name is Alex. I'm 15 and I hide in my dark corner of the internet writing a so-called "blog" here on Destructoid. I think far too critically of myself which has reflected on my personality, as I'm cyncical and highly critical of...well a lot of stuff.

Anyway, games. It was all about the GameBoy Advance when I was young, and have grown up on an unhealthly diet of portable gaming (GBA,DS,PSP), a recent introduction of console gaming , lots of fictional media, and yummy food.

I'm lazy and very day-dreamy, non-committal and kind of temperamental. Plus I get distracted easily...I'm really painting a rosy picture here aren't I? Still, if you stick around, (I'm hoping) you may find something of quality here, and who knows, I don't think I'm THAT bad, right...right?

So yeah, vidjo games.

Deus Ex Human Revolution
Batman Arkham City
Portal+Portal 2
Mafia II
Total War:Shogun 2
Rayman Advance
Pokemon Crystal
Jurassic Park:Operation Genesis
Super Mario 64
House Of Dead III

Also, I have twitter now, even though I now feel like a complete sell out. Follow me and see how uninteresting I can be.
