Hindsight, The Ultimate Game Ruiner

When Games Move As Fast As They Do, Can Games Hold Up Under The Scrutiny Of Hindsight? (BioShock: Infinite, Culture, Grand Theft Auto V)

Hindsight has ruined more games for me than anything else. The games I have recently gone back to are Dynasty Warriors and even some classic PS One and Two titles.

nostalgia plays a big part too - I can't believe I played Enter The Matrix and thought it was good at the time

I don't really reflect on newish games to the extent that they become ruined. I just enjoy the experience and move on to the next one.

It happens a lot with games I loved as a kid, though. All the little problems become really obvious when you play them again. Fond memories destroyed.

And if something wasn't broken from the beginning, like ME3's ending, FF13, there wouldn't be that much player hindsight going on.

Infinite sucked since they showed the "gameplay video" from e3. Only game reviewers trying to show how far games have come can overrate a game that generic in gameplay.
