But does this mean no more Iphone stuff in the magazine?!?!
Are you serious? How is it complicating things.
I have no interest in others' high scores - I don't go in there
I have no interest in Retro Gamer Website - I don't go in there
Podcast & YouTube - never go in.
I have no interest in reading (on here at least) about 360/ps3/3ds/wii/iplod's or whatever.
I'll go to a dedicated site for those things. You can't cover all bases and be good at it all.
Retro Gamer - stick to retro games and do it to the best of your ability.
High scores are high scores.
Retro Gamer website is Retro Gamer web-site.
Youtube is Youtube.
But what IS retro? When is it next gen? I mean, discussions on ONE series of games spans retro and current - so which is it? Resident Evil for one. Pacman another. Even CoD.
So, to enjoy reading peoples opinions here on gaming, I need to go to two place. I won't bother. Its like having to buy a newspaper, then go and collect the sports section from another counter.Its pointless. I buy a newspaper and don't like sport, I don't read that section. I give it away or bin it.
Someone else added how its the people that make this forum & I agree completely with that. Other forums that are current gen are usually full of kids, where as here, its mostly the more mature gamer, who enjoys retro from when we were growing up & enjoy current AND retro now we have less hair and carry more pounds.
And the mods will be endlessly moving stuff around. I'm a member of another forum and they spend much of their day moving threads from A to B, when the subject header is all anyone needs to read. Don't like CoD, don't read it. Simple. Why make it more difficult for those that want retro and current?
