Have Video Games Actually Improved Since The Previous Console Generation?
It’s been interesting playing with my old PS2 for the last couple of days. The games… don’t feel old. If I play an old ATARI game, or a SNES game, those feel dated. But the PS2 stuff… it really doesn’t.
Sure the graphics on modern consoles are better and we’ve got some clever new control mechanisms. But that’s surface stuff really. What has actually improved between something like Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance in 2001 and anything released today?
