We're a generation that grew up with 8/16bit consoles, and by our teenage years we're slap bang in the middle of Moore's Law ramping up graphics and gaming experiences exponentially. Game budgets, quality and therefore our views of them took quantum leaps every 2 years.

Since then, the whole thing has slowed down some what. The big PC franchises aren't shipping in the numbers they used to, Mobile and Social is where the money is, leaving the hardcore gamers expecting but never getting that quantum leap.

Also, a 12 year old is much easier to impress than a 22 year old.

I'm pushing 30 and barely have time or the energy to invest in a game... and I loved Max Payne 1 & 2. Max Payne 3, I've enjoyed. I thought it would be worse. But I like it... and that's OK.
