You mean being a gaming purist? Being a gaming purist is the very personification of awesomeness.

Purists like you got us the exact same shit for 10 years now. We get nothing, but reboots, remakes and the same f%cking game mode with 20 different names now. Literally entire market is getting stagnant, cause people are tired of seeing same shit over and over again.
If for you being stagnant and not moving forward is awesome, then good for you. But I'd like to push the limits and see what's behind the veil, not sit in one place like some depressed 40 year old dude who spends every evening looking in the mirror and reliving his glorious past, because he is too scared of looking at the present and the future. Anything to keep his thoughts away from that balding spot.
Change will happen one way or another. You can scream, you can throw tantrums like a baby, but life moves on. If you refuse to change and improve then... you will be left in your glorious past. A relic.
