Advertisers will tell me that everybody wants to be 19 and people aiming to do well should play to that. This also means that some would argue the music you like at 19 will form the style you like from there on, the films you like..... Now I have been looking back at the reviews of games I have done and I seem to cut a certain style/vintage of gameplay more slack than some. However this is not the sort of games that I saw when I was 19. Equally we saw a massive fracture of what gets called popular culture -- it is nothing unusual for there to be 200 TV channels (I remember the introduction of the fifth free to air channel in the UK* and those not that much older than me remember the introduction of the fourth), indeed it is not all that odd to find someone that does internet instead of TV, having a platinum album is actually something special these days compared to being able to trip over then in the 90's. Has this changed anything? *UK TV was something of a running joke in this regard so maybe not the best example.
