It's amazing. Back when this site started (today, 18 long years ago…), this hobby was regarded as extremely weird. After all, the general opinion was, why waste time with ugly, boring old games when you can just play the latest 3D shooter? Nowadays, the whole "retro" thing is in full swing. It has even turned into a viable market again, for better or worse. Almost on the side (by now), there is also a dedicated community of enthusiasts who create new games in old style and for old systems in their spare time. Is it a golden age for people like us? Considering the annoyance of our valued hobby being reduced to a Pacman logo on a shirt in many cases, maybe not. Though there can still be a lot of "pure" enjoyment – as in Mine Cave!
