I thought I did too and a friend gave me Pokemon Eevee for Christmas last year and I played it for 30 minutes and decided I didn't actually miss Pokemon, I missed being 13.I miss Pokemon sometimes. I kinda wish I still had a DS. No idea what happened to mine. Maybe I gave it to a cousin or something.
Eh, I dont blame you for that reaction. I bought it too as something Jun and I could play together since it was a watered down version. We didn't last too long either. I still think the mainline games are worth a buy.I thought I did too and a friend gave me Pokemon Eevee for Christmas last year and I played it for 30 minutes and decided I didn't actually miss Pokemon, I missed being 13.
On the flip side, I played something like 300 hours of let's go Pikachu after not playing since x/y, most of that time online battling, and loved every second of it. Sword and shield come out and I get bored of it within an hour, maybe I just was burnt out by thenEh, I dont blame you for that reaction.

Something I haven't like about newer pokemon games is how long it takes to get through the tutorial and get to the meat and potatoes of what makes pokemon fun. And the meta game is so extensive now that it's not fun at all to fight with pokemon obsessive randos, a reset and a tonal shift would be good for this seriesOn the flip side, I played something like 300 hours of let's go Pikachu after not playing since x/y, most of that time online battling, and loved every second of it.

This is a bit outdated, but it might give you some of what you're looking for:I need a guide for exhausting cards with the Ironclad I think. I'm not sure how to make it work right.
I played during the beta with the usual suspects, and I came away from it really not liking the deckbuilding part of the game. I understand it's there to increase replayability, but I just don't like it. It seems to me, also, that the so-called L4D creators forgot what made L4D so great was its casual accessibility. You didn't have to manage different kinds of ammo for different kinds of weapons. There was barely an inventory system at all. You may not have started with the best weapon but at least what you had was serviceable and upgrades were easy to find and all over the place.Been playing Back4Blood.
It's the Left4Dead creators taking what was good about Left4Dead and updating it into a new game that has the same first person action awesomeness you can expect from the Left4Dead series such as swarms, unique areas, and great character banter. But then it expands on all of it by utilizing a sort of leveling up system that you have full control of, giving you several dozen different types of weapons you can find and upgrade with modifications, a looting system that allows you to purchase items and team upgrades between levels, and 8 choose able characters, each with their own bonuses.
Downsides that I have found are
* The mutation ridden (this world's version of special zombies) are not as unique as the ones in the Left4Dead games. Boomers, chargers, spitters, etc were all very distinctive in those games. These ones seem to have 4 types but each shape has 2-3 different sub-types but they all just kinda look the same. Tall Boys and Crushers for example are both these tall lumbering zombies with one giant arm, but the only difference between them seems to be the tallboys smash you with the arm and the Crushers grab you with them. I'm sure there are some visual differences but they seem so close it's really not obvious to me.
* There are three difficulty settings (Recruit, Veteran, and Nightmare) but so far myself and my friends have only managed to survive Recruit. Veteran is such a drastic increase in difficulty we can't even imagine how much of a mess nightmare will be.
I dunno if this is still a thing that happens but if you had your fps cranked up in Skyrim or Fallout 4 previously, it completely fucked with the physics engine. To the point where whenever you'd enter a room everything that could be moved would go flying like you were the personification of a hurricane.So I installed a load time enhancer mod and I don't know how to make it work without Vsync being on, which even at 60 fps (why is this a hard limit Bethesda? FUCKING WHY?) is like watching a slideshow compared to the gsync 165 hz monitor I'm used to.
Last played that years ago in early access, sounds like I should give it another chance. Usually with survival games I'll fall into a tedious routine to stay alive and I'll quit when I get bored of doing the same things over and over all for nothing. Cracking up and losing everything when I spiral sounds like a good timeInto a Darkest Dungeon fix right now after watching some streams of Darkest Dungeon 2 being played.
I've always enjoyed the game but would lose interest after a few in-game weeks as my teams would utterly destruct due to stress and then my Hamlet to bankruptcy. I just wasn't very good at stress mitigation.
Getting back into it, I've had a blast checking out some other folks playing on Twitch/YouTube (OldManSethus, ShuffleFM) and working my way through. The Steam Sale put the price right down to dollars so I picked up all the DLC as well.
The art, music, narration, animation - just all so good. Lots of hard choices to make too.
