dear retro gamer

Paul rose’s (aka mr Biffo) point about com­ing of age when com­puter games and mid­dle age col­lide with each other has hit the nail on my head and could ex­plain my re­luc­tance not to be at­tached to the lat­est games. as Paul pointed out what’s hap­pen­ing now is that games are just an­other mass en­ter­tain­ment medium along with movies, mu­sic and tv, throw­ing ev­ery­thing all at once at us rather than mak­ing some­thing that’s akin to get­ting ex­cited as watch­ing your first movie in the cinema. to cut a long story short, my rea­sons for agree­ing is ba­si­cally that i miss the ef­fort that was made in mak­ing a game and its art­work from scratch.

thanks for get­ting in touch. a lot of it prob­a­bly comes down to age if we’re hon­est. when you’re in your mid-for­ties like Dar­ran is, it’s hard to get ex­cited about the lat­est

[Xbox One] Games like Red Dead Re­demp­tion 2 high­light just how much work goes into mak­ing them.
