I sort of relate to this video — because I'm a grumpy old man who doesn't like change. 'Retro gaming with a modern twist' takes aim at all the concessions we've made in our gaming: day one patches, pointless DLC, obtrusive advertising. As someone who is literally too scared to turn on their PS3 for fear of all the updates — I can relate.
But at the same time, I get that this is a little harsh — I don't think that in game advertising is anywhere near as obtrusive as this clip suggests. And I don't mind waiting for the odd patch.
'We didn't stand for it then,' says the video. 'Why do we stand for it then?' Well, to be honest, most of us were too young and dumb back then — we would have stood for anything. I paid full price for Jurassic Park on the SNES for God's sake. And the equivalent of $140 for Street Fighter II.
Anyway, maybe I'm thinking too much about this. Everyone just watch this funny video!
