Nostalgia in Gaming

        Have you ever sat thinking "Maybe I should hook up my NES and see if Mario Bro's works..", or even your PS3 or XBOX 360! Nostalgia plays a big part in our gaming preferences and publishers often play off of it to market remakes or even new IPs. Reliving our childhood years and playing old games is something we all want to do, and most of the time, it is good from a nostalgic standpoint, though some games don't really age all too well (I'm looking at you, Nintendo 64 collect-a-thon games!) Even if they don't age too well, it's still fun to go and see how you remember the games and how they hold up. These games, though, aren't always as good as we remember them, and we have to realize that though some of the older, childhood classics we loved didn't stand the test of time and that the majority of new games are better than old ones. This isn't the case for every game, because a lot of old games still look and play beautifully, and really have held up.
