I was thinking back to the old days, and I suddenly realized I
enjoyed the games more when I understood the hardware LESS.
Games seemed more like magic, especially things like an
unexpected voice sample, or real music from early cd-roms...
Now that I understand the hardware more, it seems I nitpick too
much. Worry too much about how my video card might cope or
frames per second, etc.
I tend to think ignorance is bliss as far as hardware goes.
Or perhaps instead of ignorance it was innocence.
