Shane...About modern gaming vs. classic gaming...
...you were right.
I've been listening to the older shows, especially the March 2002 show, in which you bitched about the lack of a quantitative merit system, and I have to say, you hit it on the head.
I think the "classic gaming" industry has to break off from the IDSA in order to survive. The classic gaming scene is more at risk than I thought. Basically, all Generation Gimme wants is for the old video and computer games to be stomped into the ash-heap of history.
If the classic gaming scene had a lobbyist group like the IDSA, this might not happen. I think that Generation Gimme might be more akin to playing classic games if the new lobby group put strategically-placed subliminal ads until their tiny-ass minds couldn't take it anymore (ie we could have more classic gaming references in Family Guy and The Simpsons). Most of them have classic NES games, the last (i think) set of people around back when the NES was the cool thing to own, right before the Sega Genesis pwned all over the NES's a$$, is in college now. We are quite possibly the last bastion of hope for classic gaming.
Let's kill any chance Generation Gimme has of killing our classic games.
