Do you ever feel like computers aren't as much fun as they used to be?

They're not as fun because nothing on the horizon is good enough, we are already at 4k and even the next iteration of graphics cards won't be enough to properly max it. There's nothing to look forward to

I enjoyed PC gaming more in the 90s when it was different from consoles.

I enjoy PC gaming far more now that it's the same as the consoles. It actually "just works" most of the time, most games have native controller support (and those that don't can be brute forced with Controller Companion), and I can play on my TV without a bunch of obscure adapters.

Conversely, I can't stand console gaming now that it's largely the same as PC gaming.

No, but I do feel that the (other) people who use computers aren't as much fun as they used to be.
Logic is the antithesis of faith, else why is it that faith defies logic while logic denies faith?

It's just how discovery works in society I imagine. I can see cavemen discovering fire after a lightning storm, assigning someone to always feed it,protect it, love it. It's a sacred deity to them, they don't understand it really, but they know it's something amazing so they pick up things about it in time as they have great interest. Society goes on, they build a nice little stone altar to it where they keep it going, the fire of our fathers.

Romans master the hell out of it with oils, they use it to light their streets and public crap houses, paying no nevermind to it, it's a tool to serve man, takes a little time and skill to setup so they aren't so modern in disrespect for it, but it's not a big deal if you want to put the torch out to ease guilt for a dark bedroom orgy experience with slaves,wives,goats,bath boys, senators,whatever Romans were up to in those colorful murals.

Now fast forward to current times. Strike on box, roll a little wheel, you match it with the twitch of a finger and you don't concern yourself with it's keeping at all. It's on demand, and you will never love it like the caveman or be as pestered as that perverse Roman in disposing of it. Knowledge is the death of wonder.

All technology will share the fate of fire.In future, It won't be surprising to see a 5yr old with a holographic computer on their wrist ultra comfortable with it saying, what this old piece of junk? I so wish they'd buy me a new one. Appreciation goes right out the window with wonder. If it became commonplace for humans to shoot lasers out of their eyes and hover around like fin hummingbirds, I promise you with time, society would tire of that too and it would go out of fashion. The appetite for the next great thing is insatiable, so tech will alaways be moving forward because the market will never stay satisfied with what it has forever.

Over saturation of technology, programs, ease of use and plain old use.
Computers and the internet was once a hobby but now it's basically life for everyone.

Yes, because they aren't.

I still love the old 90's games, sid meiers colonizatino 94', panzer general, fantasy general. I'm reluctant to get into these remakes, and they tend to be better graphics with less options. Simplified games which is not what I would have expected when I grew up in the 90's. I had hoped that Colonization 2 would've had more features and less technical limitations but civ 4 colonization just doesn't seem to be what I was hoping for. And the remake of sid meiers alpha centauri doesn't seem too inspiring.

For me I kind of goofed... I have to turn on like three different speakers, undo my controller, sit on the couch, hope I have a good time. I mostly buy co op games and just work and sleep, so most days I just grab the wii u and BS in zelda and then sleep. If I had a expensive laptop I could mess with wherever I'd give pc more love, but right now I'm just lazy.

It doesn't help that my friends only like like 5 games... all online only
