People need to STFU about nostalgia.

People who use that word only use it because they don't understand why their opinion is in the minority that the newer games are better.

Example.

Say 2 million people like Symphonia and 1 million people like Xillia. Someone says people only like Symphonia because of nostalgia but people who like Xillia like it because it's actually a good game. In their view, no one actually likes Symphonia because it's a good game but 1 million people actually like Xillia because it's a good game and therefore their opinion that Xillia is a better game is fact.

If you like Xillia, that's awesome cause I like it too. But don't whine and make excuses like saying we only like Symphonia better because of nostalgia when the game you like better isn't as well received.

But of course the only logical reason people like games like Symphonia, Ocarina of Time and Final Fantasy VI is because of Nostalgia, not because they're, you know... Good games or anything that are still worth playing? No, of course not!

ok? doesn't mean nostalgia doesn't play a factor.

there's no real way to prove it either way also how to prove what's the "majority" and what's the "minority".(you gonna take a world wide survey or something? yeah tell me how that goes)

It's dangerous to go alone. Take this.

Hence the out of place bolding.

GameFAQs really could use a "Sarcasm" tag.

Hence why I edited it to get the sarcasmic nature across properly.

Still better than you hitting the Edit Limit.

Some old games can be masterpiece even compared to today's games.
Some old games can be terrible just like some new games are.

There are people that genuinely like old games.
There are people that like old games mostly because of what they remember of them when they played them when they were kids (aka nostalgia).


There are so many variables, so it doesn't make any sense to say "this game is this!", "this game is that!" like they are absolute truths.
