Analog Addiction writes: "I think as gamers, we’re blessed to currently be in the seventh generation of gaming with the eighth generation swiftly approaching the horizon. Having recently finished the campaign, Naughty Dog’s recent outing, The Last of Us, comes to mind when contemplating just one of many prime examples showcasing how far video games have journeyed in terms of narrative, gameplay and visuals.
Despite such a far leap in gaming technology since I was just another ’90s kid hypnotized by his first console – the almighty Nintendo 64 – there’s a strange pattern I’ve noticed in gaming in this generation. Even with all of these new possibilities gaming holds, we have often ventured back to the past. From HD collections to overhauls to reboots of classic franchises, we still love visiting our ghosts of gaming past on occasion whether it’s sniffing that used cartridge smell or purchasing the latest HD collection of our favorite titles from yesteryear."
