I always live in the present. It is very important for me to remove old stuff and create a new idea. I thought about my active time on Newgrounds and I have the feeling that I lost the passion for flashgames since the shutdown of Nonoba. Of course you cannot expect that everything is enjoyable when you want to reach a high ranking in the medal stats. You will have to fight with genres you maybe don't like or games which go far further than just difficulty - luck related, grinding, farming, etc. . But I have no fun with the medal games and that for quite some time now. I am sure that the viewers on Twitch already noticed it. 

I have played a few games now which teached me to have fun with a game again:

Cool Spot (Genesis), Final Fantasy I (NES), Mega Man I, Donkey Kong Land III,  1942 (NES)

As you can see these are some old games you can easily reproduce in a flashgame. Munguia just proved it. matt-likes-swords can even create something better than this old RPG as well as Lan14n. Igmon showed a Mega Man -esque competitive game and SinclairStrange just creates them in a timespan like it is no work at all. AdventureIslands could easily outsmart above Platformers and we have already seen better SHMUPS than 1942.

I don't want to miss this here on Newgrounds and like especially Munguia showed there are also new people who can create a high quality standard for games, but there is also the stuff that cannot compete with it. I will stop hunting medals and only focus on the games I can have fun with. I will still continue recording every new released game in case the competition in the rankings outweigh the game quality again. But there are a lot of other games released in the last few years I have just missed because of World of Warcraft and Medal hunting. And that will take some time.
