When i think back to all the good times i've had playing games i sometimes really get sick from nostalgia. I LOVED the good old days... the games, the game computers, the video games and during the early years of my life i have owned:
I was born in 1972 so my point is this... games were better before. At least it felt like it at the time and because i have so strong emotions and fond memories of them, this must still be true? Hands down - too me - the most important game machine EVER, was the Commodore 64. But if you think at it from an "artistic" point of view, todays games do offer so much more in terms of great game play, story, immersion and graphics. So howcome the C64 had such an huge impact on my life - is it because i was younger and more "inexperienced" at the time?
When i'm at work (delivering bread and cookies), almost daily i get a vague sensation of nostalgia that overflows me. I can't explain it, it just happens and they are almost always very hazy, not tied onto any special moment or game experience, just... well, a nice fuzzy feeling and a longing to return to my childhood days of video gaming. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that gaming was a rather new form of entertainment, maybe this is why it still has such a strong affection?
