the burden is finally lifted (i sold my xbox360!!)

I finally did it. I thought about it for a while and now itīs done. I sold my xbox 360 and all the games i had for it. Those were quite a few i can tell you. 
There was lots of digital stuff on there, too, like walking dead, mass effect etc...

Now all the consoles i have left are my gamecube, a ps1, a psp, a ps3 at my ex girlfriends, a ds, a 3ds and my GBA Sp. 
Well, and a MacBookPro with Steam and an few Games from GOG.

I found a box hidden away in the closet with Killer 7 and WindWaker for GC, so those are the games that i replay now. 
I play WindWaker with my little daughter and we both love it. 
Killer 7 is played frequently, too. Damn, that game is weird, but beautiful in itīs strangeness!

I donīt miss the 360 at all. I have pretty much played every game worth playing on that platform and i donīt want to go back. 
My favorites from the last Generation(in no particular order): Pretty much everything from Rockstar (including Tabletennis!), Skate 2, Mass Effect, Deadly Premonition, 
Alan Wake and the Walking Dead.
There were many, many more Games i played but i canīt possibly list them all.

I think about buying an old original Xbox to replay Jade Empire (why isnīt there a sequel??),

There is nothing at the moment that could convince me to buy a next gen box or ps4 even though there are already a few games that are good. i guess iīm over this industry! Fuck online, fuck digital distribution and dlc and all that.
I īm so tried of all the shenanigans the industry comes up with to suck money out of my pocket. Sure there are great people in this industry that that are pushing things in the right direction, but the overall drift is not to my liking.
Iīm totally happy with my "oldschool" games.
i wonīt be back into AAA Gaming anytime soon.
I might get a vita down the line (probably with olliolli and a few other niche games..)
In retrospect the last generation was full of really really great games but sooo full of industry BULLSHIT that it really turned me off from the new consoles.

Now i go back to my Gamecube with the Logitech tft Screen attached to it and play Wind Waker with my daughter
