If you have grown up in the 1980’s or 90’s, you are sure to miss out on the good old world charm of retro gaming in modern BandarQ era. It’s true that games today are more technologically advanced. But there are certain amazing things about old-world gaming that a retro gamer longs for. The post below lists down the 5 things we miss about retro gaming.
No wait for online installations
Back in the retro gaming era, one only had to go to a game store, purchase his favorite game, come home and start gaming immediately. Things were very simple. But today, with modern virtual gaming, you have to wait for hours for a game to get installed in your device. It’s because modern games carry elaborate data sets that eventually claim prolonged deadlines.
Gaming controls were fairly simple with retro gaming that kept the fun intact and enabled players to concentrate more on gameplay. If half of your time goes in finding the right arrow, how will you enjoy the game? Unfortunately, this is what you will mostly see with modern games. Most of the games today come with button sets that players have a hard time to master.
Demos of games
Ask any retro gamer what’s that one thing they miss badly with contemporary games, most of them would mention “demos”. Yes, demos so exist even today but not in its previous glory. They have been replaced by play & beta tests that are useful to publishers but not exactly to players.
Retro gaming was fundamentally local and the local arcades were the hotspots of gaming sessions. They were not only great for gaming but also for fostering new friendships. You will hardly find arcades today.
No matter whatever game you choose today, you will have to shell out money for in-game purchases as otherwise you can’t climb up to higher levels. But with retro-gaming, there was just a one-time purchase and no in-game purchases.
