You know, there's a lot of times where one has to ask why we can't just have a minigame of some sort while ****** loading? The answer is that some asshole patented it already for the sole purpose of sueing anybody who does anything interactive with their loading screens

Noooooo? It isn't? Because otherwise people wouldn't be begging for remastered versions of stuff like Okami, Grim Fandango, Day of the Tentacle or Red Alert. Anoyne saying that Goldeneye still lives up to current shooters is either deluded or trolling.

There were no between-level load times because more often than not the entire game was loaded up and running in the console. Games with little enough art assets and code to be entirely loaded up in that potato of a system, games that forced blind jumps and relied on nothing beyond level memorization.

So, no, thanks, I'll just play my 1-20+ GB games with lavishly crafted worlds, well-made sound assets, non-satanic level design and endure the indignity of 20 second loading screens per level.

(Not stating that all current games are good, much like not old games are good, merely that nostalgia doesn't mean quality.)

"man look at these textures. it's an entire 10 pixels!" old school games are fun, but that's just stupid.
