I discovered Ponies late so I am still fresh to me. But as >>141043
mentions. Enjoy the reaction images, and once in a while start from Season 1 and binge a little MLP until you reach an appropriate point.
For gaming I have sadly drifted towards doing more casual gaming that I can play a little, enjoy and leave without lots of effort. But I used to invest a lot of time in FPS, Real-Time, and Turn based Strategy games, and Adventure games. But for my sake today's games are more or less all MMOs. Single player have sadly fallen into more or less obscurity. More or less it is only a short training mission to learn controls these days.
tl;dr; game makers should start focusing on single player again
So to regain the joy of games I think visiting the old games from the golden age of gaming. Install ScummVM and enjoy some excellent adventure games. Try some old FPS games like Soldier of Fortune. But we have also become spoiled with good graphic so I think mostly only the adventure games really stand the test of time (graphic wise). But as graphic quality increased gameplay suffered greatly. I still wait for the industry to get back to focus on the player and give the player something to loose himself/herself in.

Like newest Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, I don't know how many people pleaded to the creator to actually give the player freedom. In the old game you could drive around freely in the town, find a police car and start a chase. You could then choose whatever route you wanted to drive, gathering speed, memorizing routes, perfecting the skill to dodge. The new game has select race you want to drive, drive from start to end (or if you mess up start from the beginning); rinse repeat. There is no freedom, you can't choose to drive at night or day, that is pre-selected for you on the race you choose to drive. The game would have had infinite replay potential if it had given the player freedom to drive in a fictive town starting chases. But now you are lucky if you ever find back to the stage you actually liked (and even if you manage to find it, it is limited how fun it is to drive a predefined route every time).
tl;dr; FUCK YOU Electronic Arts
