Replaying Carlsev Saga for the first time in many years...oh my god. It's really hard to play through your old games, especially when they're noob games.

I find it can be fun to have a fresh look at my old games if it's been several years ^_^

I still have an old RM2k3 game I worked on in like, 2007 on a flashdrive somewhere. It was the great 'magnum opus' game we all imagined making when we were kids that I've had in my head for like fifteen years. I recently figured out what kind of format I'd finally want to present it in. Maybe someday I'll make it. I doubt it though.

Anyway, I played through that old game a couple years ago expecting it to be awful but it was actually only a little bad. I was shocked.
I replayed a bit of Sore Losers when I bought RPGMaker 2000 Value+ and (although some of the dialogue is a bit over-the-top and the graphics really aren't very well matched up with one another) I was pretty happy with how the early sections played out...

... but that version was the somelargenumberth time I attempted to make that game. The early ones were dreeeeeeeeeeadful.

I've been playing some of my first games for a retrospective thing.

I tend to wonder how badly my brain was damaged at the time.

One of my mentors on Wikipedia calls it "strategic distance" - the longer we're away from our work, the more errors we find upon revisiting. Our memory is (usually) fairly limited; the further we distance ourselves from the project, the less we remember about it. We recall less about our logic at the time and simply approach it with less bias. Plus, our skills usually improve over time...

Early contender for weirdest statement I'll read today.

If I recall, Deckiller used to be a mod on Wikipedia, so not as weird as it sounds.
