Oh yeah....I'm sure this has been thrown around a lot in the past couple of years. There's absolutely no problem with having a preference toward the older games or the newer games. However, I feel the reality of the situation comes down to some of the older games being better in some aspects than the newer titles and vice versa. Imo, probably one of the biggest pros of the older games was that it was much easier for a person to insert themselves onto the characters in some shape or form. I recall trying to give each main character a voice back when I was playing FFVIII. This in itself could contribute to a better experience than what may have been provided otherwise. The downside though becomes that written dialogue can be interpreted differently, which may lead to radically different viewpoints on how a character is just in general. Newer games, on the other hand I feel do a better job of displaying characters. What I mean by that is that it's much easier to tell the emotions of the characters, understand how they sound, and tell body language easier. I believe because of this, more people are able to accurately define characters. However, because the characters have more detail to them, it becomes much harder for a person to insert themselves onto that character. That's just my thoughts on it. I understand this has been covered a lot already, I thought I'd just share my thoughts on it. Thank you.
