I don't know you or anything so I don't want to make any assumptions, but I don't think it's laziness so much that once you get to a certain point (late 20's/out of college/career, etc) that things meant to entertain (games, comics, tv shows, movies) cease to be one of the biggest pillars in a persons life and, instead, revert back to what they were meant to be, entertainment. I think this might be the case for most, not all, but most. I do have a friend, same age, and he's the 'remake/item x destroyed/crushed/wizzed on my childhood' types to which I tell him I wish I had his life growing up if that's the BIGGEST thing he had happen to him to tarnish his childhood.
Way back when all of Michael Crichton books were being made into movies (middle school), I realized no movie will ever resemble the book and I should judge based on medium not source material. Made life a lot easier and has prevented me from beating the dead horse of 'book is better'
