Stuck in Gaming’s Past: A Response Post

When I was reading Cary’s post entitled “I Am the Future of Gaming?”, I couldn’t help but see myself.  For me, too, the future of gaming couldn’t be further from the truth.  Forever stuck in the past, I will often find myself buying a new console just before its predecessor is announced.  More often than…
