Why, Back In MY Day...
« on: August 19, 2010, 06:25:16 AM »
I think we all had these moments once in a while. When people use phones to actually speak to them. When people got up to change the channel, When people have to settle for dirt for dinner.

This is not supposed to be a bash on the new generation. It's just... well... did you ever had these moments.

It seems that the new generation of young gamers(less than 14) are more interested in mature games, wrestling games, and hip, trendy stuff. When I show them a gameplay of KOFXI for PS2, they looked at it in disgust and called if fakey and didn't like the sprites.

Is it me or do kids of this generation show no respect of classic gaming?

Lol, I say "Back in my day" all the time. Its a bad habit. My friend gets angry at me because were the same age and I talk and act as if I were like 80 years old. XD

Also, it depends on the person i guess. Some respect it, others are too busy with their Halo and Gears of War and space marines to care. And anything else is crap to them. :B

Well, back in the day Controllers only had 6 Buttons and games were usually more simple (If more Vague, due to programming).

Doesn't mean I can't adapt. I'm not like my parents who stopped playing fun games in '94 to start playing those Casual games.

If that counts as a hint then a truck crashing through your wall counts as subtle.

Back in my day, Controllers had WIRES leading back to the console!
kids these days and their newfangled wireless controllers!

Also, who remembers those things they used to call "Memory Cards"?

Back in my day we would get games for free with our consoles that weren't crappy budget titles, tech demos, or Demo Discs.

Nowadays we get a few little trials to make you pay to play the full game.

Hey, I meant hard mode and such. Now you need to pay for more difficultys. It's kinda dumb.

Back in My Day Bonus Stages weren't properly labeled and you kinda had to guess where they were to finish the game 100%

Now, remember, this isn't limited to just video game. I did mention telephones.

When I was you age, Japanamation was new, unique, and good to look at back then.

Back in my day Donkey Kong Country had to be fully completed at 101%.
And Donkey Kong Country 3 at 105%. (actually, I think the first 3 Crash games had a full completion percentage over 100% as well)

Back in my day, the internet was still young.

Ah, you catch on Quick.

Back in my day, we had Super Size.

Nowadays we just drop a size inbetween and call Super Size "Large".

That is all.
