I'm self-aware enough to realize nostalgia is a huge part of why I like SNES, PS1, and PS2 more than PS3, PS4, and PS5. And this includes the gaming culture as well, which is the magazines. I know they're antiquated now. But there was something so magical about buying an unofficial Playstation Magazine (PSM) and then reading it, and getting pulled into the hype for new releases, seeing the screenshots and wondering how the game felt. It was also a unique snapshot of time where one could look into the future releases and have hindsight of knowing which games turned out to be classics. Like PSM would do their top 10 upcoming games and it would show a time period where FF7 was released but FF8 was getting hyped. Or just some incredible years like 1998 where Resident Evil 2 came out and then Metal Gear solid that same year. And you might get both of those at Christmas. Also PSM had lots of pervy drawings and original art and even did swimsuit editions with game girls. And I always loved the top 10 Game of the Year editions.
It's hard to imagine zoomers will be nostalgic about playing Fornite and Minecraft and yet, they will bc that is what they grew up on and will become bonded to. Also hard to imagine anyone forming nostalgic bonds about PS5. "It was so great when we played that game on PS5." There aren't enough original games to even get nostalgic about.

Sega Saturn has three 32-bit processors (that's two more than Playstation), which means better gameplay and better graphics.
This was probably just marketing hype but I wonder if there is some truth to this and the Saturn's extra power was tapped into. Or was it a case of a bottleneck somewhere else limiting its power so the power was never truly realized.
You know how it is when you were growing up. You never had enough money. You wanted more games. The idea of paying a monthly subscription was a bit much if you're broke. Or you'd get it and then it'd expire.
