Thanks for providing an understanding of your personal experiences in relation to your event. This wasn’t entirely necessary but very few people including myself would appreciate measures like these cause it provides an answer that someone with similar experiences can relate to. Although I wouldn’t doubt you created an account solely to promote this event, I truly appreciate your response.
Firstly and personally, I’m not interested in “everything” like I how I was 20 years ago. So it’s not a matter of “it doesn’t matter if it’s something you’re not interested in” because thats totally not the case. Besides your explanation you gave that only someone alive during the peak of the game’s popularity would be able to interpret, that statement alone exactly the opposite of what you wish to accomplish.
What I mean by that is simple, you say it’s about fun but what’s fun about something no one has access to? Nobody (a collector/under 30) has a SNES laying around. Even if one interested enough were to jump through hoops and emulate the rom, they wouldnt have a snes controller. Keep in mind, this is for a once in a who knows event. To say “it’s not person X’s cup of tea” is pure horseshit wasting your imagination assuming a specific person wouldn’t be interested in something that’s not available to them. You claim to be of the retro game type so it’s expected you’ll have the means to lying around.
You talk about fun. I’m all for having a fun time. Always been. Especially when it makes sense. When there is nothing interesting about something the modern day players or even kids were alive to know about.
I’m not dissing the event or what you’re trying to accomplish but I felt the need to use your event as an example to point out how ignorant users here can be by putting down better events. Mediocre events are often of the cause this. They confuse people.
