I am getting older though so gaming isn't anywhere near important to me as it once was.
Hell my first mmorpg was "Meridian 59" ha!
I began in computers at age 11, and have had the tandy 1000, trs80, commodore, amstrad, amiga, the original ps2 (ibm ps/2) that is :P
I'll be 40 later on this year, as a gen x'er I grew up in the era you HAD to know how to program to get your computer to do anything, otherwise it was a boat anchor pretty much, especially in deep south where only software was "PC Home and Office computing" magazine subscription that for a "centerfold" had 2 sometimes 3 programs, usually 2 games and a utility app in basic you had to copy and write in manually.
Was really great times.
I enjoy rpg's though, I put in 240 hours in witcher 3, and have about 180 so far in da:i, they are my favorite. If they go away then my desktops will be for work only as I am a programmer that got lucky enough after 15 years I'm finally able to work from home and make enough to pay bills with debugging work, bug bounty, and random projects where indie companies will hire "temp" workers.
And being in small town I've got the city contract on the city hall network/police dept network/public library network upgrade/repair/etc.
Took damn long enough to get to where I'm my own boss, work from home at least enough to pay the bills, and put a little bit into savings monthly.
If games stop supporting windows 7 and there is no linux equivalent, then I'll game on my android tablet.
The only 3 gaming consoles I have ever owned and still do are a 1979 pong, an Atari 2600, and original nintendo that needs some repairs or swap out the cartridge connector as it bugs out a lot.
I've been one of the stereotypical "anti console" folks dub "pc master race" jokingly. I guess thats it, I just loathe walled gardens. It's why in early 90's after I was running my own BBS with Fidonet support we got local numbers for Compuserve/Prodigy but I had a SLIP dialup account with my college.
btw configuring SLIP dialup in Windows 3.11 could be enough to put you in an insane asylum :P I was so glad when PPP became the go to method. But eventually MCI offered PPP dialup direct to internet, no walled garden and it was before AOL released the "noobs" to the internet, ha!, as they were still stuck in the walled garden.
Anyhow im nostalgic rambling, excuse me, I could ramble forever being a reclusive hermit :P
Point is, I've seen things come and go, protocols obsolete...
For example Banyan Vines networking prior to the popularity and ease of tcp/ip, configuring that was a beast, and the assholes charged extra for tcp/ip support:
or pppoe replacing pppoa, etc.
So if games stop supporting windows 7 then I'll game on linux / android tablet or play the classics while I write my own for nostalgia purposes. :P
