They say all good things must come to an end. But, while some things age well, passing on into their later years as a fine wine, others pass off in an instant – ephemeral.
I had come to this whole thing expecting the former; surely, good games age well. We still have our Tetris, our Marios, and our Warcrafts, embedded into the psyche like a marketeer’s wet dream. This was clearly the next big thing! People loved this new toy, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed as they were, embracing the worlds it spewed forth like newborne babes grasping their first mobile.
