Remember the good old days when no one had nostalgia?


ha.

also, sometimes, when i'm someplace old or see some place on television like that, i feel a weird nostalgia for it, though i wasn't even born until long after that time.

is not nostalgia is the true deal with it: those games were first the new ones did nothing new so first were better

This, right here, is my main issue with the whole nostalgia thing. It's when someone says something as factually wrong as this, that the it ceases to be nostalgia, and becomes rose-tinted stupidity.

Going off of what this says, not even the sequels to long running series from the 80's, that popped up in the 90's, did anything new at all.

Going by that logic, apparently FFIV's ATB, ya know the game that introduced it, did absolutely nothing new. There's no way in hell FF V brought anything new to the FF table with it's version of the Job System. Oh, and the original Metal Gear Solid? I must have imagined all that voice acting and boss battles.

How could I forget that bastardization of a game called Street Fighter 2!? It did absolutely nothing new at all! It pales in comparison to the clearly superior, and far more relevant, original. Same goes for Street Fighter Alpha 3. Don't even get me started with how Resident Evil 3 tried nothing new either. Resident Evil 2 certainly started that trend, since it made no improvements whatsoever.

What about the previous gen? Shadow of the Colossus was so very derivative. Monster Hunter? Child please. It's not only been done before, but better. FFXI, nothing even remotely new here, right? It's not like that was one of the first cross-console, cross-language MMOs, nor a successful one.

And how could I forget Grand Theft Auto III? That gets WAY to much credit. It did nothing new, at all. There are so many games from back in the 80's and 90's that blow it, and it's sequels, out of the water in every way, especially the earlier GTA's! FACT.

/sarcasm.

"SMW is better than NSMBWiiU"

"Ocarina of time is better than Skyward Sword'

"Final Fantasy Vii is better than FF XIII"(different system. same thing though)


It just makes me sick. The mechanics and graphics are so much better today than they used to be.


It's really too bad all of these are true.

so sad when little kids think that just because something is new it's better.


so what about all the hipster music these days and dubstep? what about all the sucky movies coming out of Hollywood these days?

Yeah right, and now you are gonna tell me that Fallout 3 is better than Fallout 2, Deus Ex Human Revolution is better than Deus Ex, Diablo 3 is better than Diablo 2, Resident Evil 6 is better than Resident Evil 2 or that Final Fantasy XIII-2 is better than Final Fantasy 6 and Final Fantasy 7.

I think you are the one blinded by "graphics and mechanics" my friend.

I concur....RESIDENT EVIL 6 is the Gillette of the franchise, IT'S BETTER THAN ALL THE REST!


LMFAO!! *standing ovation* That was a GOOD one!! I haven't thought of those Gillette commercials since Bob Dole ran for president.

To keep it going: "RESIDENT EVIL 6 is the Gillette of the franshise. It's" THE BEST A MAN CAN GEEEET!


Lol now who's gonna quote the Venus ads? (You are my fire, my desire!)
