I wouldn’t so much call myself an expert at gaming, but I’m also not a noob. More of a experienced-basic-sometimes good-lucky-noob-did you see that!? gamer.
Anywho, I’ve been watching a ridiculous amount of a YouTube series called “GameGrumps.” The channel is all about retro gaming and rage playing (experts know what I’m talking about).
The channel has really given me a new outlook on retro games. Because, you see, when I was a “thought I knew everything teenager… ugh,” my brother tried to explain how the older games are better. How is this possible? Of course I interrupt, “well what about the graphics and the 3D interactions, blah, blah, blah…”
But since watching Game Grumps (Go watch, right now, GO!) I can totally see my brother’s outlook on this subject matter. So I believe it was around 2-3 in the morning and I ran into Egoraptor’s channel with an explanation of Game Design, WHOA!, it BLEW. my. Fucking. mind.
So a public apology for discrediting my brother about retro gaming (Nick, I’m sorry). Check out Sequelitis, and educate yourself of this traditional gaming style and let EA know how much we despise them!
