I have an IPad and some of these games are frustrating as hell.

For example Madden Mobile, or Madden Mobile 18 football game. For me, I just want to play football on the thing, that's it. If and when you get to the football game, it's a fun game. BUT there is so much bullshit you have to wade through before it allows you to play the game. Cards, coins, virtual money, trades, the "shop", upgrades, all this horseshit. It also makes you pass their tutorial before you can play the game, and I am stuck on a level, and won't let me play the game. I already know how to play the fucking game, let me play it.

There are so many buttons and what not also, and many of the games tell a story, which requires more reading than what it's worth.

For me, I don't want to register, give you my personal information, log on to Facebook, give you a review, none of that. It seems now that companies and whatnot want to know who you are. Annoying (I'll bitch about this later).

Exactly! I don't play these modern games for that reason. I NOT going to read a 50 page textbook on how to play a fucking game and then put up with the bullshit as you just described.
I am not some kid that is going to sit and waste hours playing a silly game. I MIGHT pick up a "device" and play for a few minutes at a time, maybe while waiting for my clothes washer to finish a cycle or something or my dinner is ready to take out of the oven.

Oh my..... I would LOVE playing them!!!

With the exception of Microsoft Flight Simulator 3.0 (198, I've never played old video games for hours. I just didn't find them that entertaining. I upgraded to FS2004 in 2005.

There was one I bought in 1996 that was a lot of fun, a sort of FPS game about piloting a space exploration craft through an asteroid.

Around 2012, my son asked me to buy him Minecraft, which I did. I was intrigued by how much time he spent on it, so in 2013 I bought a copy for myself and learned how to play it, mostly because he lived with his mom and playing Minecraft with him while on the phone, later Discord, enabled us to spend hours together exploring and building things. Yes, it was a virtual world, but we were still spending far more father and son time together than we were able to before then.
