Yeah. I think it used to be real simple and fun, but all the items made it a little messy and cluttered. It's just not what it should be about (imho). TF2 ain't what it used to be.
It really isn't, but since I mostly play as Medic, I can still have a quality time every now and then just healing and ubering people like a mad man.
Whenever I play any other class though I'll get bored soon, because as you said, it gets a bit too messy and cluttered for me with all these different weapons being thrown at me. I remember Valve saying they made the characters and weapons stand out a lot in respect to eachother, so you could always clearly see who (and also with what) is attacking you. That was true before, but now with the hundreds of hats and a whole lot of different weapons, it's not so clear anymore.
Still, it's my favorite and most played multiplayer game since ET. And to think I wouldn't even have bought it right away if it wasn't in the Orange Box already.
