PSXE Poll Update: Classics Can Compete Even Today
It's always an interesting debate. Can classic games, which have long since been eclipsed in terms of technology (and artistry, in some cases) still stand toe-to-toe with modern interactive entertainment?
Well, according to our poll, the vast majority say the classics are classics for a reason. Most say there are exceptions, of course, but for the most part, titles like Tetris, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Super Mario Bros. remain fun even to this day. Some will argue that our industry has lost the innocence and purity of the golden age; we at PSXE always like to claim that we've definitely lost the innocence, but purity endures in the hearts of hardcore gamers that just so happen to be developers. They want us to have fun at all costs, and that's where our purity lies, regardless of how advanced our preferred form of entertainment becomes.
This week, we want to know if you plan on getting Deus Ex: Human Revolution. It's a very big release for late summer and for fans of the franchise, they've been waiting quite some time for a new installment. We'll be giving you a review later on Monday, but have you already decided? Or are you waiting to hear what we - and other sources - have to say? For the record, I'm approaching 15 hours and I will keep playing. For the full analysis, stay tuned...
