Quote: “The reward for this modest budget and effort is warm-and-fuzzy
nostalgia and the ability to buy and play any older game that you’d
like rather than just those available on GOG. I’m no longer reliant on
digital downloads for my classic gaming experience. I can buy a
90s-era games and enjoy them. There are plenty of these at thrift
stores for just a few bucks each.

And it’s not just about fun – it’s also about preservation. When I buy
these games, they are mine, and I will always have them unless the
discs are physically destroyed. This sense of ownership is something
that I no longer obtain from modern games. ”
