    I still love FPS and Racing games, also enjoy exploring games but Always go back to the original Tom Raiders 1,2,3.

    Recently I've started Death Trap Dungeon on the PS1. The game gets a bad rap but I'm enjoying it so far.
    That's based on the Fighting fantasy game books, I loved reading through those it also used the Tomb raider game engine.

    Re: Has your gaming taste changed as you've got older?

    Most definitely. For me my reaction times have worsened as I have become older, so I prefer less and less fast paced, twitchy shooter type games and more relaxed, strategy type games where I have time to think. Stellaris and Oxygen Not Included are great examples of this, where as when I was younger I would play lots of games like Counter Strike and Call of Duty (1 and 2, the only CoD games that exist in my mind).

    I also have less interest in PvP games with the exception of Rocket League. Due to my lack of reactions, I am no longer any good at PvP shooters and losing all the time to 12 year old kids who scream down their mic's causes me to get irate due to years of severe depression I have yet to overcome. I can still get like that sometimes in Rocket League, but I have learned to control it in that game because it's just so much fun, and I now mostly play with a good friend who gets the best out of me and we play around Diamond 2 level (still trying to push for Champion, but I doubt I will get there).

    NO.
    And the even stopped making games i like ( simple FPS games ), so really i should have flipped and be playing the garbage they make now.
    But as it turn out i have integrity, so i am not playing and waiting for something to change.

    My taste in single-player games haven't really changed much, but the multiplayer games I prefer now are kinda the opposite of what they were about twenty years ago.

    I used to play a lot of fighting games, deathmatch/objective shooters, and generally competitive PvP stuff. Now I'm a lot more interested in co-op PvE type games and just screwing off.

    Weekends no longer disappear in a blur of Champ Manager.
    Shooting enemies on D-Day beaches (COD) is a distant memory.
    Conquering Europe in medieval times has long gone (TW)
    In fact i rarely ever game on my PC anymore and if i do its typically a single player flash game.
    Most of my gaming is now on my phone, with Empires and Puzzles occupying most of my gaming at present.

    Re: Has your gaming taste changed as you've got older?

    To some extent my tastes have had to change as games have evolved since my first Spectrum 48K, and new genres have gradually appeared. But I’ve always leant towards the more simulation/realism type games. I spent a fortune playing Hard Drivin and Race Drivin in the arcades in the early 90’s, as I loved the realistic handling and polygon graphics which were way ahead of anything else at that time. I even ending up buying a working Hard Drivin cockpit about 8 years ago, but sold it on after a few years as it needed regular maintenance to keep it working well.
