Well, paintball is fun for other reasons. Namely the chance to inflict a little bit of pain (in good fun) to my buddies, lol.

So true!  :)

My feelings exactly. I wonder how John feels about so many of us putting our ridiculously high hopes on his back. Posted Image

Don't feel much honestly. I will do what I can and hope that people feel satisfied. If not, then we will take their feedback and make adjustments where we can. :)

But that's the problem, I don't find any of these typical first-person shooter tropes enjoyable...

That is the key point here. We all find different things enjoyable and for different reasons..... and there is nothing wrong with that. I haven't bought or played a R6 game since Vegas (I actually had some fun with that one) because nothing looked good to me.

Siege looks like a lot of fun in the way that I would have fun playing a weekend of paintball with friends. Realistic? No, but an enjoyable time.

To me, the argument here is simply 1) Those that like that sort of gameplay or don't and 2) Those that can see past the R6 name or can't.
We each fall into 2 of those categories. ;)

That is my only point really.

........except apparently as i age, my tolerance for bad games doesn't get any higher

And there in-lies the rub.... "good" and "bad" are subjective. ;)

In general, I don't feel like I get my $60 worth out of most games these days so I don't buy many. But most of the games that I do buy I get way more than $60 out of entertainment from. I don't care where it comes from or what name is on the box really. I watch videos, read people's opinions and rarely buy anything during the first week of sales. And I never pre-order anything. I do my due-diligence on a product before plopping my money down on it so there is a fair chance I'll be happy with it. Sometimes I'm not, but for the most part I am.

Pretty easy way to live. :)
