The internet is changing. Text based games just aren't as popular as they once were.

Not only that DL... Games need to change to keep the interest in them. GA nor MR have had any changes for years now. It definately doesn't help older players to stay interested in the game, and a game with no to little veterans can't attract rookies. Both together cause the steady decline.

But it's of course true, that people these days want eye candy that's why visual games are much more succesful, and text based games last too long as well.
Personally i changed my taste to RTS/MMO games where i know i can start and finish my fights on the same day.
With work and sleep, you can't truely update decently in text based strategy games.
i've grown past my crazy sense of lacking on sleep just to update frequently on these kind of games.

Money isn't an issue for me, I'm just so absent minded that I always seem to pay things last minute. I'm too damned busy.

Ah, that sounds more like me as well smile.gif Always helps having someone to help remind you of stuff like that.
