  1. I think that modern games have much better gameplay than old ones. I’d even rather play the lastest milquetoast, cookie cutter Far Cry game than attempt to play anything released for the NES.

    Basically the made the games too hard to navigate, and I HATE those where the fuck do I go type of games. Also they didn’t have save points where you would want them.

  2. Shinra is absolutely right in ff7, outside thier strange mako/human whatever stuff. What ya want? Turn off the power and let everyone sit in the dark?

      You could find sources for power that doesn’t literally kill the planet

      You do realize it’s the exact dilemna humanity is going through right now right? Hope you don’t live on a coast or you’ll regret trusting Shinra in 20 years when your house is below sea level

        Yeah, fusion has been 20 years away for about 50 years now. We should be building fission reactors right now till fusion is ready but greenie times are pants in head retarded.

        No one in ff7 ever suggests an alternative energy source, it’s never even mentioned. I’m really trying to remember but does using mako to make electricity even proven to be harmful? Sure they fucked around with the human/mako hybrid stuff and that had terrible consequences but just using mako to keep the lights on seems benign

  3. I respect the false belief that Retro gaming means platforms launched in 2001 and earlier. It’s stupid and ridiculous but I respect it.

      • One can respect something without subscribing to or actively endorsing its validity or intrinsic worth; I assume the poster in question means that he acknowledges the position, while disagreeing with it for being limiting and arbitrary, and does not seek to infringe on or contest the rules as they have been established.

      • I’ll try, but you might not be able to grasp the concepts. A long time ago in a world far, far less woke, people tolerated, and even respected the beliefs and opinions of people who hadn’t been programmed to think exactly how they had. Many even respected and obeyed the rules, even if they didn’t disagree with them.
        If none of this makes any sense ask your gramps to explain it to you.
