    I think old games are better because:
    A) They were more original.
    B) Developers tried a lot harder, you don’t see much easter eggs or hidden rooms anymore.
    C) Gameplay was put above graphics.
    D) Instead of being made purely to sell developers tried to make the game as amazing as they could.
