Sean @ FG: It’s time for the “Well, actually” brigade to lay off our gaming nostalgia.
What about the people who do want it? I'll admit the shenmue remaster could do some work but none the less its hype for people who haven't played it and new generation of gamers also people who wanna play it again. Im hoping for legend of dragoon. The sequel that was announced that was cancelled back in the days
I want "more" Nostalgia games
It's more the opposite actually. It's nostalgia gamers giving shit to newer games/entries. The "They don't make em like they used to" mentality. Well no shit they don't. For one the hardware changed several times over!
Most gamers I see don't do that on a regular basis. They complain about individual titles....like COD is a prime target....but most of them still accept that many new games are better than a lot of older games...or at least different.
The thing about reviews.... they are normally 1 person's opinion. So depending on who reviews it, it'll either be glowing or a sack of crap.Even worse.... if you only have fans of a certain game or genre, the review will be skewed in 1 direction. Have people that don't like or hate it, the reviews are skewed in the opposite. That why things like metacritic scores become helpful, but 100% of a game's true worth. Now let me enjoy my classics on newer hardware as my older hardware slowly dies
Nobody has to be a d*ck about it.
Older games are by far better than today's garbage. Occasionally a good one will slip in.
And yet people on here keep complaining about how Nintendo games get by on "nostalgia". Interesting.
Yeah, one of my friends linked this to me saying the same thing. She thought it was pretty funny and hypocritical as all get-out as well. The hypicrisy just knows no bounds around here though. As we're just fine with nostalgia whenever we're talking about games on certain consoles or that they hold dear like crappy crash bandicoot & others that will remain anonymous as I don't want to hurt people's feelings. And also...give me a damn break man. Especially when we're okay these days with people shitting on other gamers personal gaming choices. So dumping on that is fine, but lordy don't crap on someone not feeling a shenmue or crash bandicoot game that aged horribly. GTFOH with that lol.
Unpopular opinion I think people need to grow thicker skins, there are plenty of people who sh*t on nostalgia games that I personally grew up with but I just ignore them and move on.
I remember no tech trees , gun unlocks , crafting , blueprints, tag customization and personal .It is a shame most games are open world and have become bloated menu sims.
