"I hear a lot about how many gamers go back and play their favorite game from the past, old school games from the NES and PS1. It’s cool to be nostalgic and all, but I can’t bring myself to go back and play the games I once was so passionate about. Paper Mario, for example, was released almost eleven years ago. And even though I have played it to hell, even now I’ve got an urge to go back and experience it once again. However, about ten minutes into a new game, I shut off my N64. It just wasn’t the same. It wasn’t how I remembered. Have I been so influenced by this new era of gaming that I can’t even go back and enjoy many of my favorite games? Pokemon Snap, KoTOR, and Stronghold are forever out of my reach now without putting unnecessary amounts of effort into forcing myself to enjoy a classic."
