Man, this NES roundup is a beast — I spent all yesterday morning compiling the thing. Basically, it goes to prove that 1990 was an amazing year for the NES. Look at all those great games, most of which were entirely new titles rather than sequels! I don’t know that there’s ever been a year so dense with good, original works, and I can guarantee there certainly won’t be another. Originality is much, much too risky with game budgets being what they are these days. Not that sequels are inherently bad, unless they’re terrible, but I do miss the days of going to the store and being surrounded by dozens of new creations and knowing that I had even odds of taking one home at random and being satisfied by its offerings.
Blah blah blah, shaking cane, yelling at kids re: lawn, etc.
I’ve also tweaked the format of this article style, so this entry looks a lot better than the past few. But man, you can just forget about me revamping the existing posts to match.
