I think the main problem is, as you get older, you have a lot more freedom with your gaming, so whatever game you get is less special to you. Back in the day when you got FF8, you were like... 14 years old, it was a big deal to you. But you're 19 ( just saying random numbers ) years old and you buy your own games, so they're less special since you can basically get as much as you want.
I mean, I just got 7 games in 3 months, Final Fantasy 3, Final Fantasy 12, Xenosaga 3, Makai Kingdom, Disgaea: Hour of Darkness, Phantom Brave, and Shadow of the Colossus and to be honest... I don't really care.
But don't worry Korriri, Final Fantasy 12 isn't that good anyways!
