Well after listening to a couple of flame posts by opposing fan boys I realized that these kind of people are
the reason that gaming as an art form hasn't seen it's Citizen Kane. Think about it films have critics so that
can be something that discourages someone from seeing a certain movie. But if its new some people are going to go see it just because. But being a Fan boy is basically closing your eyes and ignoring everything that comes out for it based on the fact that you don't own a certain system. Video games like any other art form should be taken as subjectivly as possible because they have different effects on different people. An
awesome example would be a widow or widower's reaction to Passage as compared to some 13 year old kid. The way we look at the world changes as we get older and experience different thing. We are the ones as gamers who are ultimately responsible for the industries out right sometimes pandering attitude. They make
the games that sell.
It is a given as a business that they are here to make money first and foremost. The
reason I think retrogames are making such a come back is because the companies are now pandering to the
kid inside all of us 20 and 30 somethings that remeber these games or these types of games. I forget the
Qoute I want to use so i'l make another post when I get home but it basically states that that when it comes to
anything the only way to begin something is with an open mind, otherwise you will eventually miss something
that might have been the most important thing in your life. I don't know what I would have done if I was a
nintendo fanboy and only played nintendo during the ps1 and ps2 life cycle. All of the games I would have
missed . And that is the reason I probably still play games because it made that leap into survival horror and
puzzle games that have kept me here for this long not to mention fighters. Three words: Marvel Vs. Capcom.
Any way let me know if you agree or disagree. Peace love and 8 bits
