Whenever you see someone gripe about how uncreative the game industry is, the 'observation' almost always seems to carry a hint of nostalgia to it. It's almost as if people want to suggest ~the good 'ol days~ were so much better.
Gaming used to be so much more original! Right? Hmm. Judging by this picture of an old gaming mag tweeted by Frank Cifaldi, maaaaybe not.
Excuse me. I'm going to go pick out a game from my library of vintage Pong clones to go play now.
