Extra Punctuation The Nostalgia Factor

Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw:

The various things I've said about the new console generation and their respective hardware gimmicks might have given you the impression that I'm some kind of stubborn aging neophobe who insists that everything stay exactly the way I like it forever. Nothing could be further from the truth, say I. I am fully aware that all things must go through a constant sequence of change and evolution, it's just that I can recognize an evolutionary dead end when I see one. But just to even things out properly and argue on the side diametrically opposed to neophobia, I'd like to talk to you today about nostalgia. (Culture, Retro)
