Personally I enjoy games that do this, the likes of DOTA 2, CS:GO and DayZ are only a few that focus on this, but, for some reason I always come back to the first encounter I had with a PC. I remember patiently waiting for my dad to get home to see what treasure he may have gotten from work, from one of his IT friends. He would come home and I would eagerly wait for him to open his briefcase and show me what he had retrieved from work. Booting the PC up and waiting for Windows 95 to start so an evening of fun could start. The ironic thing is I never really played at that age, I found it more intriguing to watch my father play the game. This was my first experience, a game by the name of Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis. I would sit there and try solve puzzles with my dad, watch the story unfold and just have fun, even if it did get frustrating with certain puzzles.

What I have started noticing is that the current games don’t seem to have this challenge or at least the story is not at all on the same level. Games have moved to this area where they have become simplistic and well boring. I find myself owning 100s of games on steam yet I have hardly finished any. I find myself jumping from game to game, not because it gets boring but I follow the trend my friend take in what they play. I think developers have seen this and I can understand the trend of involving gamers in a game versus just playing on your own.
