Re: Missing the
It's almost like you're treating the past of video games like a religion, that you should pay it due respects.
Super Mario Bros. 3 doesn't give a shit if you never play it again.
Metroid 1 wouldn't care if your foot got ran over by a bus this morning.
Bad Dudes doesn't give one crap if you play it, don't play it, own it, step on it, trade it for a bump of crank, melt it down to make your mother a sex toy, or eat it
"o i c wat u did thar"
It's amazing how far we have come with our technology and technological needs, so far to the point we barely even have time for using "pen & paper" anymore.
It seems almost as if people have given all hope on our past (except for us here of course and a few others lurking about), rejecting it and always pursuing the more "advanced" future.
Although, I do have to be fair... I admit that today's newer games are really "amazing" in their own way; but no matter how much I enjoy games like:
-Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
-Modern Warfare 3
-Resident Evil 6
-Pokemon: Black & White
Plus many other games that I actually haven't played yet (I have only played maybe 4 games of today's generation, but I have managed to see others play these games).
With all due respect, and I know this seems a bit "harsh" as well as "narrow-minded"; but if it wasn't for our past, today's modern gaming wouldn't even exist.
In my utmost humble opinion, I believe it is only fair to pay our respects and give a few plays in return to our past on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.
How about the rest of you...? Which is better in your opinion, or are they "technically" equal?
[Whether or not you agree that the retro generation is better than the modern generation doesn't matter, I still firmly believe that both generations should be experienced and respected nonetheless]
