he never said that older games are better. rather, he wishes that the kids at least showed some appreciation for the older consoles, instead of outright trashing them for lower graphics, bulky design, etc. one kid went so far as to say he'd throw the console into the trash the moment it's given to him. that's how much they regard older consoles.


Nice try, but I have no reason to rewatch a vid that I've seen months earlier. I was also spot-on, regarding the alienation and insult-hurdling towards the more youthful. I have never been impressed by that sort of behavior, and will not start now.

nice try at what, exactly? everything i said is truthful, and you can verify if you even so much as bother to watch the video and read his post.
but of course, you're too important to do that, aren't you? sigh...

Once again, you assume I'm not familar with the vid. Did I not say that I've seen it before? You spout on about it being so important to watch the damned thing, and assert that I'm not familiar with it's contents, hence the "nice try." Is it so unheard of for me have previously viewed it? I follow the channel.

You expect me to approve of people taking the behavior of a few and using that as a "prime example" of millions of unrelated individuals? No. I will not. If this thread regarded my mother and grandmother's generation speaking about those your age taking their technology for granted, my stance would be the same.

That said; you're awfully determined to insist that I'm disgustingly self-important, even downright stupid. I don't expect that we'll get anywhere. I will not back down from my view.

Kids these days only know of iPads, Minecraft and whatever the hell the "modern gamer" is into. They don't appreciate the classics, they can't. No need to go through the trouble of making them.

I would want to expose them early to difficulty to make them approach gaming with a bit of tenacity and to also do problem solving. I'd also think it would be beneficial to have them manipulating camera controls as soon as possible as that tends to be the greatest barrier for most people.

Perhaps Demon's Souls would be a good starting point?
