And no,Im not merely negative. I gave props to several other games, while serving the crapware with the attitude it deserved.
Yes, I Am bitter about a certain generation of arcade games, because they were pretty much responsible for the death of the Arcade industry as a whole.
Not just because it pretty much tanked my job as a manager, but because it destroyed the entire experience for future generations of kids.
As for mame, its not hate. Its disappointment and some anger regarding its lackings, and the often poor attitudes that come from within it.
Btw, Im not against these wretched games being preserved. But I could care less. It was merely laughable to me to hear them labeled as "really good games". The equivalent would be like someone saying: "The Cabbage Patch Kids Movie was GREAT". Everyone is entitled to their opinions, and should be free to express them.
And again, if you are a fan of the arcades... then in truth, hating on poorly made games... most always made by clueless & greedy corporate serpents, should make you angered too.
Such poor judgment and control had lead to such bad decisions as Marble Man. The ball being an actual generic cartoon character, instead of an abstract artwork piece. Gameplay, art, concept, and controls... all butchered.
Game collapse of the 80s? Due to an overflow of low quality games that didnt earn the ops their money back.
Of course, games arnt the only things that get me going. Just listen to the extremely poor quality of music today... Its sickeningly sad.
