Yeah, people can like whatever they want in a game really. Most people aren't complaining about new gamers as such, but rather that new games are being dumbed down to attract a broader audience. The problem isn't with the audience but with the games themselves. What makes it a shame, is that companies have no faith that people will enjoy their games if they are too smart. But we've seen this poven false time and time again, just look at how popular New Vegas was and still is. If companies thought of their audience better, then maybe they could think abit more critically about the games they play.
