I feel jaded against all these new games. I look at games that came out in 2013, and only a very small handful even interested me. I think there are great games out there, but there's also a lot of mediocre games. Case in Point: Firefly. I enjoyed Firefly (the show and movie), I'd love to have a boardgame based on it, but the Firefly boardgame was nothing special. It's a good pick-up-and-deliver game, but it's not great. As such, I'm not buying it.
I think that we as gamers can be overly fixated on what's new and exciting. I'm trying to be excited over playing the games I own repeatedly. Repeated plays are where I learn new strategies and can try new things. A game isn't much good to me if I only play it 2 or 3 times. I've said that board gaming is a great hobby when it comes to cost because you can buy 5 games and play them each a bunch of times. Buying a $50 game and playing it twice isn't very good value.
When new new new is pushed down our throats as gamers, good games suffer. There's something to be said for playing 3 favorite games in a night, rather than 3 new games. I still enjoy trying new games, but there needs to be a balance with old favorites.
All of that being said, I'm still going to buy new games, just not as many as I have in the past.
