Holding On To Old Games

Posted on August 31, 2016 at 5:38 pm

For some, once a game has been played its done with and there’s no reason to keep it. For others, a game is a piece of art and should be kept in a library like a important novel. Whether you hold onto old games is down to a personal preference. However, holding onto them can actually be an investment. Both for money and even for the sake of history.

Video games are becoming mainstream now. Like anything which becomes mainstream, it has to have had come from somewhere that was not mainstream, this means games used to be something special, something that doesn’t come along often.

Many people don’t realise it yet but video games actually hold a creative love that is only found in the greatest examples of art and literature throughout history. Games such as Metal Gear Solid and Ocarina of Time were made in such a way, in a certain time period, that they can not be recreated. Not least in a medium that bows to mainstream thinking and service.
