Video games go through different trends over the years. For example, the industry is largely caught up in the First Person Shooter trend that started a number of years ago. It just seems like we can’t shake this genre, as there are new entries almost every day. Surprisingly, the most refreshing games are turning out to be the retro-styled ones.
There’s no denying that the industry is currently taking a look back at where they came from, and realizing that perhaps all the avenues weren’t explored. We’re seeing old-game ideas with new twists, retro-looking titles with mechanics of today, and old-school ideas with prettier graphics. If anything is going to help push the FPS flood down a bit, it’s going to be classic gameplay.
