Quote of the Day: Nostalgia black hole

“I hadn’t realized that perhaps in both my old(er) age of adult reflexes and the fact that I’d gotten used to more forgiving, time-saving mechanics in modern games that I had fallen into a nostalgia black hole trying to get back to old school games […] I don’t really say this to state that we’ve gotten soft as we’ve gotten older and games have gotten more forgiving (I can’t tell you the amount of times I had to watch poor Lara Croft, 2013 edition, get destroyed because of my mistakes), but to say that games have evolved a bit with respect to how respectful they try to be with the time gamers have to play.”

    Appreciate the pingback! This reminds me that I need to get back on your blogroll since I’m in the midst of a blog-once-a-day-for-a-year challenge 🙂
