Whenever I notice myself getting too caught up in the changing face of gaming technology, I boot up the 8-Bit beast that is the NES, and that always seems to put me in check as far as what gaming really means to me. But that's not to say I don't think the 360 is a piece of green liquid turd, cause it is.....AAHAHAHAHHAHA

You get disagrees for your 360 comment, but I think you make a good point.

I know people who play games for a number of reasons, and I know almost all of them started on an NES. No matter your reason for playing, you could find it on the NES.

Play for bragging rights? Drop that 60 hour game you're playing now and beat Ghosts and Goblins on your old NES. No AI makes any game near as hard as that old beast.

Play for fun? A 5 minute session with Mario can make you remmeber fun isn't measured in polygons and frames per second.

Play to explore? Play Zelda again, because the first Zelda feels every bit as big as most games made today.

Just as sometimes a basketball player just needs to work the follow though on his shot, something so basic, we, as gamers, need to go back to our first system, play out favorite game, and remember why we love video games. People do look at technical things too much. That's not why anyone loves gaming.

We can only hope this age will end, and we can all enjoy playing games because we love them, not because they run 60 fps.
