This is what happens when you delude yourself for two decades. You scramble to find one scrap of evidence that justifies your behavior. This game is the best game ever! At least, I thought it was and if you’ll just let me show you this one thing, you’ll see why. I never found that thing.
The sad reality is you don’t really miss those old video games. You miss your childhood.
Coincidentally, I downloaded and played the game earlier today. And I had almost the exact same reaction. And that seems to be the case over and over again when playing these old games. Chris Dixon is right — it’s not about the games, it’s about us.
