I'm tempted to try FM after a two year hiatus but not sure...

I'm not enjoying it at all so far. Not sure if it's the game or me

Yeah, I don't enjoy my big club games much anymore. My Newcastle game is what actually got me to go past the summer of 2016. When I get done with this one I think I'm going to have a go with Leyton Orient.

I actually find there is too much to do.

Press conferences before and after every game, the amount of detail that can go into training, speaking to players, meetings etc etc.

But the issue is, if I play a simplified version I feel like it's not realistic because that stuff is missing.

I agree with every word of this. I just can't help rushing/skipping over some elements, but then I feel I am underperforming, but I'm just not a guy who likes to take weeks real time over a season. And yeah, I also don't want to do touch bexause then I would feel any achievements were like kiddie version achievements. It also runs quite slow on my laptop

I sent my assistant to handle most press conferences.

The game does run slow on my laptop, I think there are more mid-week news items and pauses this year than in the past. A lot of times in previous versions I could really go game-to-game extremely fast if I wasn't in a transfer window. It's harder now.

Plus the matches on extended highlights last me over 10 minutes, which is a little excessive I suppose.

Yep, that's the annoying thing. So much between games it seems.

I go key highlights, then look at stats unless my tactics aren't working, then I go extended for a bit.

I suspect Key highlights could really speed up my game. I think SI has slowed down the non-highlight game speed. I used to be that minutes would fly by and if there were no highlights you could finish a half in maybe 30 seconds or less. Now it seems like it advances very slowly and ticks every 15 seconds off the clock.

Yeah, I've noticed that too. It seems to be ages between highlights even on key.

I switched to key tonight and the games are cut in half, which is speeding up the process, but the game is still slow.

This is exactly the sentiment I've had with FM over the past 2-3 years. It's probably the most important reason why I don't play anymore, besides getting a job and a girlfriend.

I think SI know this - which is why they have the classic mode, and the touch mode etc.

The issue is the psychology of knowing the game has more depth, but not doing it. You should be able to switch mid games. Like during transfer windows I might go to the full detail mode, then during season I want to skip all of that stuff and just go simple mode. The remainder is auto-piloted - but not "done by my assistant, which then says I'm a hands off manager etc.

I've hardly played at all, actually regretting the decision and feel I wasted my money
