I have to agree with this! My old games connect me to the past and I like to maintain that connection. Is it sad that a lot of my happy memories are centred on videogames? So, even with my modern 4k HDR tv I still have ALL my consoles connected up. Being able to fire up a PS1 game in a few seconds somehow keeps the memories more alive and more real.
Playing Timesplitters with my newborn daughter asleep on my lap.
Ico (and many other games) with my wife.
Quake II on the PS1 with my sister and her boyfriend.
Endless Tekken with a room full of student friends.
A Christmas playing Final Fantasy VII.
My mum watching me play Tombraider.
And now my two daughters and hours upon hours of Mario Kart.
Is that just me?
(Before you worry too much, I don't just play video games, and I do have other pleasant memories!)
