...I tend to have a different attitude to gaming now that I'm older (a little over 40) than when I was younger.
What I'm getting at is - that I'm quite happy to play quality games, almost regardless of age (within reason - as I'll admit I do enjoy good quality
I also tend towards games that involve of a large investment of time - so you can play them over a longer period of time.
RPG's, FPS, FPS / RPG hybrids, simulators, strategy games and racing games are probably my favorites - plus I have a decent collection of arcade games
So in response to your post - I suggest that if there isn't much appealing over the last year or so, then expand your horizons and look into some
older / classic games and also consider emulators.
You don't mention PC gaming in your post, so I'm going to assume you're a console gamer ...?
...if you've got a gaming PC, then I could probably suggest a few things to have a look at - but I personally find consoles a bit limited...which your
post is seeming to confirm.
What sort of stuff do you enjoy ?
re: Mass Effect Andromeda - I actually enjoyed it. It's a "light" RPG with a focus on combat, but i found it about on par with the first trilogy. I
also had no issues at all with the animation - regardless of the numerous complaints. From what I read, the focus of those was the female shepherd
character(s) - so playing as male minimised any complaints in that area.
As a random suggestion - have you played either Metro 2033 or Metro Last Light ...?
both are available on PS4 and I'm a fan of FPS/RPG hybrids.
