Dev: Original Zelda had more in it than most modern games

0

It's very trendy to rag on modern games and say that things were better in the good old days. I've certainly addressed the topic before. Never mind though, because here's a bit more ragging!

"Currently I think that games are kind of depressing," says Love developer Eskil Steenberg. "If you play the first Zelda game -- it’s 25 years old, but you can do more things in that game than most games you can play today. That tells me we haven’t really gotten very far. The games that are closest are games like Fallout, but they are very scripted.

"They are sort of brute forcing it. Instead of making a roller-coaster, they’re making a roller-coaster with multiple tracks and various places where you can switch tracks."

It still gets a raised eyebrow from me when I see a developer -- almost always an indie one -- declare that the state of modern games is miserable and depressing. Maybe I'm too busy having fun to notice how "scripted" and "restrictive" things are but ... wait, there is no but. I'm having fun

I win.
