Also are there no simple fun games anymore that don’t require you to spend weeks completing endless boring tasks or learning to get to grips with your character, car, ship etc? All I require from a game these days is to kill a few aliens, zombies, race my kid around a Mario type track or score a goal whilst not having to learn the latest crappy step over etc.

I’ve not paid full price for a game since I bought Donkey Kong Country 2 for the SNES when I was about 8 for £50. Fifty whole pounds.

There are plenty of games like that available Derek. 

I think video games have only got better and there are some really masterpieces out there. Red Dead Redemption 2 blew me away, it was excellent. The Witcher 3 was another masterpiece.

Games lose their value very quickly. Give it a month or so and RE2 will be 20-25 quid.

I've not got time to mess about trading games anymore. When I didn't have kids then maybe, but with a family with three kids under 10 £50 is way too much for one game that you have to give up hours to play. Any recommendations for simple shoot em ups, fighting games would be great.

I don’t think anyone pays 50 quid for a new game anymore, even brand new games on release can be picked up for 35-40 quid if you shop around.

If you want a simple shooter the Doom remake is pretty damn good and can be picked up for pennies, maybe not one for the kids though.

I tend to wait for offers on Amazon prime or go to CEX, second hand games are much more friendly on the pocket.
