One thing I love about modern gaming is that I can afford better pizza than Pizza Hut.

I love that you don't have to buy CDs anymore. Though I keep some just because they're like relics to me, for instance, the Lineage 2 CD and all that.
But being able to download anything and have all your games in one account is very handy.

I can afford better than Pizza Hut, but I moved away from NYC so all the other pizza up here sucks, so I wind up eating pizza hut anyway.


On topic: I also love that modern systems have a longer shelf life, PS4 came out in 2013, and we are in now in 2019 and still no release on a PS5.

PS3 had a life of about 10 years when all is said and done, so I like the way they really have time to figure out how to squeeze every ounce of power out of a game system nowadays.

Oh I remember 2004 when some classmate gave me those Lineage 2 CDs.

One thing I love about modern gaming is how when you post on forums a bunch of people come and advertise their shitty MMO to you endlessly in a tone deaf manner as if we can't tell it's happening.

If it makes you feel better those posters were advertising bots/sock puppet slave labor accounts for Lineage 2 Classic that invaded the site a few months ago.

Even so. That's akin to someone trying to sell me their MMO and then screaming the N word.

Odd sales tactic lol.

Yeah, it’s an odd choice of terms for the community.
