Do you remember the old games that were used to play? If we have lived long enough, we can probably remember standing around in the video arcades dumping mass quarters into video games.
We may also be able to remember the old videogame systems, such as the Atari and the games that we would play on it. Video games are much more complex now and it seems that more complex games are coming out all the time. Many of us still enjoy playing those old games from time to time, however, so what is the difference between old games and new games?
The older games were really played at a time in which the videogame technology was very new. Even by the time a home video game systems came onto the market, we still were very used to playing the old games and thrilled at such titles as Breakout or Space Invaders.
I can remember sitting around at my friends house and spending an innumerable amount of hours playing these games. They were extremely enjoyable and were an excellent diversion to life in general which can get stressful from time to time.
The new games are all about graphics and action. Yes, there are still plenty of word games and puzzles that people play but the newer game systems were built with the thought that people enjoy playing games with a lot going on in them. This is true and you can certainly tell that it is because of the type of games that are coming out that are wildly popular. Even the game systems that are coming out are being updated almost on a yearly basis. As the videogame technology grows, the games need to grow along with it.
It doesn’t matter if you like new games or old games, it’s always good to play something fresh. Some gamers would never think of playing something retro, such as the Atari but the fact is that, for those of us that have played it when we were younger, it’s still a lot of fun. It’s hard to find those old games in the store anymore but you can still find them on eBay. In fact, many people look on eBay every day for the older games and find out that they can get newer games at quite a discount. It’s a great way to build up your video game library without depleting all of your money.
