Nostalgia

Nostalgia is the thing that makes you hate changes. Because you remember that long ago things were better and now they suck. The thing is you usually just remember the good things about stuff and forgot the bad thing. Example when you played game 10 years ago, all you can remember how good the game was and how you beat the final boss. What you don't remember is how you spend 4 hours trying to beat the boss with tears in your eyes. I downloaded loads of old ps1 games because of nostalgia only to notice that they sucked. It's simple as a kid everything were much funnier and you usually enjoyed those games because they had flashy stuff in it. Some of things might have been better long time ago, but most of them isn't. What would you do without your computer or how would you like to watch tv from 10 inch screen. We just keep everything we have now granted and keep looking back because we think everything was better then.

Lol yeah, people always think things were better in the good old days. saw a guy online the other day say the 1500s was better than now. i was like ok, enjoy your 35 yr life expectancy back then

That's so true. Although not all games from the past are bad, some have real retro value, but many of them are just like you explained.

Yeah most of them are bad but there are some pretty damn good games too. It was just example.

I know the feeling of games not being as good as you remember them all too well.

"He also talked about a deeper bond with a product: nostalgia. It’s delicate, but potent. Sweetheart. Teddy told me that in Greek, nostalgia literally means the pain from an old wound. It’s a twinge in your heart, far more powerful than memory alone." -Mad Men

Yeah, nostalgia is tricky. I think fondly back on times I know were tough and miserable, but memory tends to gloss of the negative in many cases.
