I spend so much time modifying the games I want to play that, by the time I get them to a playable state, I no longer want to play them anymore. It's a frustrating experience. I think I need to just upgrade my computer and kiss off a load of older games (ESPECIALLY Grim Fandango) because I'm really fed up with incompatibilities and limitations of archaic design.
Just needed to vent. Having the ability to install mods is nice and all, but I hate that for some of these games it's an absolute requirement to spend about an hour googling the right mods.
