The new games are still fun, but they feel 'tinny', or less substantive than I'd come to expect for millions of ducats dumped in to a piece of software. With many modern shooters, I feel like they are evolving into a caricature of what a decent shooter would be.
Also, I think as the PC gaming generation gets older fewer newbies (In all due respect of course!) back-fill our ranks. I hope I'm wrong. Anybody got stats on our rate of attrition? LMGTFY yada yada
It might be worth noting that Google originally rejected copyleft in favor of permissive licensing in the name of giving OEM sand carriers more control over Android on their devices.

Lastly, if any of you have ever used the word Phablet in conversational English, we need to have a serious discussion between you and my 12 gauge.
The Nuremberg Laws targeting Jews in Germany were enacted in 1935. Germany invaded Poland in 1939. We did not enter WWII until two years later in 1941, and in that case our fucking military base at pearl harbor was attacked. Get a grip bro.
Both Moses and George Washington used spies, and Benjamin Franklin opened other people's mail for intelligence purposes. Do you think it is too much to ask that the US and its allies be allowed to use them in our age to prevent a surprise nuclear attack, and maybe the occasional 9/11 or bombing? Or is that just right out? Is the only "ethical" thing to do simply carting away large numbers of bodies after an attack and rebuild the airplane / stadium / city, assuming there aren't new overlords at that point who prevent it? What about the rights of the victims? Isn't the right to life the most basic right of all? What would you do for them, to prevent their being killed? Or does that not matter? Would you even approve of Thomas Jefferson's actions to prevent Americans from being taken into slavery, or as hostages?
Your strawman needs new clothes, he's becoming very recognizable. Not drinking enough of the koolaid? Or is that you COINTELPRO?
- First, all major government websites require usage of this.
- As more and more brick-and-mortal government offices close, more and more people start using the id.
- VISA, MasterCard, et al begin requiring these for all online banking.
- Taxable web transactions somehow get tied by law to having to use these.
- Soon, ISPs require you to log in with it periodically, (remember AOL internet 'sessions'?)
- All utilities, bills and such paid online start requiring it.
- Social networks require it for 'think of the children' safety.
