When you're young, you see games differently, you don't understand them as just a bunch pixels, polygons and textures, you see a world behind them...

I remember playing Nights: Into Dreams and feeling completely immersed into it's world, feeling the colors around me, it was a funny feeling, as if i could smell, see the world as if i was inside the game...

Last time i had an experience was with the movie "Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain", i feel sad for kids that are growing up with games like Call of Duty nowadays, but, well, to each his own i guess...

I miss those days, damn!
