Migrated Nostalgic value of Games
What value can you place on a game, if all it has is nostalgic value? Well, since games are toys, if it’s fun and nostalgia expands on that, then I would say it’s priceless.
I say this mainly as the justification I need to spending my bill money on a Nintendo 64 yesterday.
I sit in a lonely place right now, I may be homeless in a month, but still my ill devised plan is not going as it should. Why?
Nostalgic value has a higher place in a lot of hearts over technical appraisal, I would have a lot of difficulty justifying this to a modern gamer that has never played it. But this game has had a huge impact on me. This game is the reason why I play invert. It’s the only reason I ever started playing shooting games.
I loaded it up expecting to “wow” my housemate with my awesome skill and swiftness from aeons past. Instead I was met with shame and regret as my new-found skills in shooting games appear to have overwritten my skill at this one. I really am rather devastated at this as I was ever so looking forward to Perfect Dark on Xbox Live.
I suppose this also means I will be terrible at Turok 2…
