Nice article from Slate on how many current video games lack decent game play and how vintage titles like Pac-Man and Space Invaders are making a comeback. The basic point of the article is that you can have all the CGI in the world but if the game is no fun to play, it likely won’t be very memorable.
I’d like to play Joust again or Dig-Dug. Or, best of all, Gauntlet (“Wizard. Is about to die!”). Any favourite games from back in the day that you’d like to drop a quarter into again?
