Lord Mushroom Posted September 12, 2021 Share Posted September 12, 2021 Someone said in another thread that the Playstation Classic failed because people aren´t as nostalgic for the PS1 as the SNES and NES. I don´t think it is that simple. I think there were several reasons why it failed: - Mediocre game selection - Many games were PAL-versions (in places where they shouldn´t be) - Poor emulation - Controllers without analog sticks - High price - Few enhancements - Potential buyers of the Playstation Classic are not as rich as the potential buyers of the others (because they are younger). But I am open to the idea that people being less nostalgic/interested for/in PS1 was a major contributing factor. So, are people less nostalgic for the PS1 than the SNES, Genesis/Mega Drive and NES? If so, how much less? I will go first. I think so, and here is why: - The PS1 is newer. It is harder to be nostalgic for something which isn´t very old. - SNES etc. have some of the best games "they don´t make anymore" (sprites). Whereas PS1 has some of the worst of modern games (polygons). 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
