Things have changed, but are still the same...

I've been thinking about things that have changes in my life lately...

I used to the be the biggest otaku fanboy ever when I was a teenagers and still was up until recently, but when my sister got married, I had to save lots of money to buy her a present and a suit, so I had to cut down in manga and anime, but it was soon replaced by webcomics, now it seems the "veil" has lifted and I don't worship everything mildly oriental anymore, now I can actually see what is actually good and what is just fanboy bait... I no longer consider myself an otaku even though I still read manga, and watch a few anime shows, like One Piece..

But it appears to be a bad time NOT to be an otaku, US comics and toons are getting more "manganized" each day, maybe the fact that we are having an anime "invasion" was also part of the reason. I'm not much of an otaku anymore? When I was a kid, I loved dinosaurs and wanted to be a paleontologist, then came Jurassic Park and the Dino Mania, and I got sick of them...

Also, reading webcomics has got me used to more plot driven stories, and not action packed adventures, if I don't "connect" with the characters I soon lose interest...

Game-wise, things have changed too, and yet are also still the same...

Being an otaku back then, I simply adored japanese games, and console games, but now I prefer US PC games...

I used to adore japanese RPGs but ever since Square started making their games teen angst fests, I slowly switched to americans RPGs...

Have things really changed? I still read comics and play videogames, but I don't play them for the 3 "B"s anymore: Boobs, Blood & Boomsticks...

Things that haven't changed at all? I still hate sports more than the villianess from Sport Billy...

Things that have changed? I've become more cranky and moody, but working in a @#$% job and waking up at 5:30 AM does that to you...

PS: For the second time, I've bought a movie thinking it was horror one, and for the second time, I thought it was a marvelous movie and was actually moved at some point, the name of the movie? "The Village"
