No this has nothing to do with Michael Jackson, unless your fond of Moonwalker for Genesis…
I pose a simple question to our readers out there. First off, let me start by saying I was listening to the music from Legend of Zelda – Link to the Past today. I thought to myself…”I remember playing this game like 10 times throughout my life and why is it that I blow through a game as quick as possible now when back in those days I would play one game over and over and then maybe a year later play it again. so on and so forth”.
I ask you fellow readers, what is it about today’s world and the game economy we live in in that gives a game a short life span, and doesn’t allow us to have those same feelings as we did when we were younger?
I still get that feeling today, but its so rare and occasional that I feel that the part of my life when nostalgia was so integral and common has all but disappeared from the way things are now. I remember a few instances from my childhood when a purchase was more than a stop at the game store, it was an experience like no other. Let me share a few stories from my childhood that I remember vividly with you and then hopefully you’ll share yours with us.
