Nostalgia. This word evokes a joyous familiarity felt when we indulge in something in the present that we really enjoyed doing in the past. The game is no different. Everyone has games that bring back memories of what we think are better times. The recoil is a bit like the snob that says what you could have done. The retreat tells us that our childhood may not have been as bad as we thought. As adults, we know how the world works. When we grew up, we never really caught the world. In retrospect, we learn that these times were better, safer, less complicated. Games that arouse nostalgia bring us back into a child's mind. It allows us to feel safe and protected. Humans naturally tend to want safety and protection. Especially adults, because as adults, we know how fast the world can go from one day to the next to a horrible day. As players, we are looking for security in games.

I started playing very young like most players of my age. I grew up playing Super Nintendo and Nintendo 64 with my mom and sister. Super Mario, Kirby and Mario Cart are some of the titles we played. Zelda was perhaps the biggest game we played. My mother has problems with fast games like Call of Duty and other very graphic games. So we played Super Nintendo and what the weather was! Zelda on the Super Nintendo we beat several times. I say "we" but it was my mother who did not play me or my sister. Even thinking about it while writing this, I'm starting to get nostalgic. We kept getting closer to the end and then, the match erasing our backup, we started again three times. It was good time. It was at the age of six, seven or eight years old. Long ago. Nostalgia gives us hope for the future. It tells us that if good times have happened in the past, other good times will happen in the future.

Later, I started playing alone. It's hard to think of the game that comes next in chronological order, but they all had one theme: the solo strategy. A wide game description that can hold a lot of games. Games like Pharaoh and Cleopatra, Age of Empires II and, of course, Civilization III by Sid Meier. I was not allowed to play shooters because they had vulgar language and were therefore limited to solo games. My parents were very protective and games were not as prevalent twenty years ago as today. Pharaoh is a city builder who places you in ancient Egypt. The goal of the game was to build big cities using the resources at your disposal. It was a challenge for an eleven year old child. Age of Empires II is a real-time strategy game completely different from Pharaoh. You have to balance the collection of resources and the production of troops to eliminate the AI ​​or other players. Civ III was probably my favorite game growing up. To this day, I still play Pharaoh and Age II Empires.

Think about what nostalgia is for a second. It's a feeling from a memory. A memory of "best times" that may or may not be accurate. The games we played a long time ago, bringing back those memories, might not continue to be fun. Civ III I played for hundreds of hours when I was younger, it's not as much fun now that I'm older, so I do not play that much now. Sometimes nostalgia resides.

In conclusion, nostalgia in games is a good thing. This allows us to relive moments of our childhood that we would otherwise have no reason to go back from the depths of our minds. Many people say that video games lead to antisocial behavior, violence and declining educational outcomes. Video games teach us how the world is. When you play multiplayer in any game, you will usually find people just toxic. He is preparing to face the worst social problems. Human beings are subject to violence. The first murder took place when Cain killed Abel in Genesis. I'm pretty sure they did not have video games at the time. So this point will always be debatable. The only point that makes sense is the drop in grades. It takes a lot of discipline to do the school work on video games. He builds the character of this discipline. So, the next time you feel nostalgia, take the time to stop and feel the memories. Immerse yourself in the thought of a better time and hope that good years are yet to come, no matter what the world tells you in the present. That's what nostalgia for video games teaches us.
