^What games are you playing that that's a problem? I honestly don't think I've ever heard anyone say that modern games have *less* story unless they're talking about Ubisoft exclusively AAA sandbox games.

I like the general aesthetic of old games - the graphics, the sounds, the music. There's like a spectrum in my head of how aesthetically pleasing video games are from the old days to now. Games can look and sound pretty in 8-bit and 16-bit. Then you get into that awkward phase when everything was blocky as we ventured in to the 3D realm. Things don't feel aesthetically pleasing for me (i.e. Final Fantasy VII). But then we got better and things are really pretty now in the 3D world.

I feel like the only person on earth who likes blocky graphics. Idk, they're endearing.

there were a lot of games for the n64 that are still aesthetically pleasing, especially some of Rare's games

I didn't say that modern games have less story. I meant it more like games where you can't effectively change the plot with your decisions. Skyrim, Mass Effect, etc. Not saying I don't enjoy those games. Just saying I missed when every game had a specific story where you couldn't change certain outcomes.
