Hello everyone! I’ve had a topic on my mind for sometime around the subject of games being ported to newer platforms. I certainly have my own opinions that’s changed over time, and really falls into a grey area.
This initially got triggered from the last Nintendo Direct, which showed off alot of ports coming to the Switch. As I took to twitter, I noticed alot of opinions about this, and many people were cool with seeing games ported over, while others were not.
Alot questions come to mind regarding game companies porting older games. What would you rather have them do instead if you’re not okay with it? Do you want to see more new games instead? Do you think it’s a cash grab, or necessary for those who have never played certain games? These things could change from game to game.
Of course I wouldn’t be posting about this unless I was really curious what you all thought of the subject. So I ask you…
What are your thoughts of older games constantly being ported to newer platforms?
