Familiarity in Game Realities

Gi - Hey, that’s not just a nice rhyming title, most of the fundamental aspects of games released today have been around since kids sat in caves playing crank powered log consoles like Fred Flintstone. Atari in the 1970′s, Yabadabadoo. This wide range of weird ever present aspects are familiar yet unnoticeable to most players. Signature tropes embedded so deeply and consistently in our gamer psyches that despite how peculiar they may actually be, they don’t even see how strange they appear anymore, often they never did. These quirks are almost like DNA running through so many game genres, getting passed down like genes, and getting all worn out like er, …jeans. (Culture)
