The golden age of gaming
Todays landscape of gaming is understandably the most surreal and visually appealing. But sadly the games today never seem to recreate the nostalgia of my childhood. While TF2, Starcraft 2, WoW, MW2, and Halo are all great games, I never get that same level of excitement that I consistently did when I was in my younger days. With the anticipation of a holiday and no school, spending the day playing Mortal Kombat, Mario Kart, Killer Instinct (lot of K's in there) or a Final Fantasy game nothing to this day can trump that feeling. WoW does come a very close to this but I guess adulthood has stripped that away. What were your best memories of gaming? Or is the scene today what gives you the best feeling?
