We all know how stunning and well made retro games were. That’s thanks to the many game testers who worked on each game before their release. Let’s talk for example about the classics from our childhoods, like Nintendo.

As far as I remember, I never found any kind of bug in most of the games that I’ve played when I was just a small boy, perhaps they were mostly present in games on non-Nintendo platforms

Now game companies only count on their sacred updates and free help from thousands of gamers who are willing to provide their feedback.

We all know that nowadays game publishers tend to focus on graphics as their major audience is teenagers. Many modern gamers are fixated on high-quality graphics. As such they’re willing to buy them at premium prices.

Yes, new games have a totally brand new engine and they are 3D, some bugs are totally acceptable but it sadly seems that the love for game development has gradually faded.

Most of us know the feeling of playing retro games and feeling the developers’s passion. That’s something that I’ve never felt when I’ve played “next generation” games.

Sadly we have to accept this fate (gaming poetry from the bottom of my pixelated heart) and we just have to hope for indie games, the only ones mostly made with the real passion for gaming.
