    That's weird because when I was first introduced to FF, it was at 7. I then enjoyed the earlier versions as well, as a true gamer I like to see how things developed and how ideas were presented.

    It's not about old and new, it's about appreciation (I find there are very few people whom enjoy all aspects of a franchise). The gaming community as a whole went through a shift in perspective, and it happens every so often.
    Creativity is certainly about not being constrained by rules or accepting the restrictions that society places on us. Of course the more people break the rules, the more likely they are to be perceived as ‘mentally ill’

    I miss the times. There’s no two-ways about it. 🥺

    There is though, I don't miss the times, I miss the feeling. I enjoy being smarter and able to understand and engage in conversations and issues that plague society today. You can say it was a simpler time, sure, but I don't miss those times.

    With my brain injury I am constantly reminded of those times in great detail, the pain I felt, but that doesn't stop me from remembering the enjoyment. You can miss those times, but you can look toward new times and better experiences, unless you enjoy reminiscing over the past.

    There is also the fact that, for people who got as invested as I did, you can be nostalgic for the times that you could come to EoFF and pour out all your problems and talk about the people in your life because nobody knew them. However, over time, EoFF became my life and EoFFErs became those people that my life interactions were with, so talking about my problems was airing my dirty laundry in public and I lost that kind of feeling that I could be open here. And that is a shame, but it is also an inevitability.

    Thankfully I still love this place, even after all the years, and I still get nice feelings when I am able to stumble into a thread such as this.

    If you log in like once a year, the place is actually very active with all the new things.

    I'm tempted to delete these last three posts and just make this thread Christmas posting once per year for the rest of time.

    With a little perseverance, we got three new posts (excluding mine) in a couple of days! The members here are pretty active, maybe boomers take a year to read and another year to post. Spare a thoughts for the elderlies here!
