@neon good post. My only issue of trying to buy games is just getting someone at Walmart to open the case for me. Which is why I sometimes go to Best Buy or Fry's but I have found that I get helped pretty quick at Walmart when I go at 4am or so.
My biggest complaint is the emphasis on online play. It is getting hard to find a good single player game specially when it comes to FPS. It has gotten to the point where I just stick with certain titles. BioShock, Fear, KillZone for FPS and Final Fantasy for RPG (although Final Fantasy has gone down hill in my opinion from the days of Playstation.) I don't really like playing online because there are enough rude people that they ruin the experience. I don't care if I get told I stink cause that is usually the case. I just want to have fun and I don't want to listen to some kid talking smack cause he sits at a respawn point or somebody that makes me have to mute because they are blowing a horn into the speaker. On top of the people I do not have good enough internet to play without lag so there is no real point.
So that is my problem I don't want to and can't play online but there is no real point in buying many of the games because so much content or gameplay is online only.
What happened to the days of just fun games to play? (Super Nes I'm looking at you.) Because of these issues I'm most likely not going to buy any next generation consoles.
To end on a good note though, that would increase my spending money for things like Anime.
