Re: Old space game

said by Deo85:

When was/is the golden age of gaming?

The early 80s. Gaming was new and exciting. Every mall had an arcade and every time you went in, there was something new to play. Home gaming machines were in their infancy but those that had an atari or intellivision had a constant stream of friends coming over to play. Every little tech innovation made people marvel.

Games are certainly better now, with huge development budgets and much better tech, but there is a lot of retread material out there. The feeling of seeing something you haven't seen before is really difficult to come by these days.
