"Why the hell aren't games FUN any more?!"
I hear Old School gamers make this statement all the time. As fun as what? Look, I'm as "old school" as they come (Who actually owned an Odyssey? This guy!), and I'm telling you that a lot of this old school nostalgia is being seen through rose colored glasses. Most of that @#$% we played as children was @#$%. Step out of the haze of youth and take an objective look at most of those games. I dare you. Like, 90% of the games that came out were balls! Later, if time permits, I'll sight some particular games, because you shouldn't make so bold a statement and not provide some specific examples.
