They just don’t make things like they used to. I think most of us who grew up in the golden era of the 90s can agree that many of the products today, from the munchies to the toys, lack the originality and imagination that they once did.
It’s 2013 and it’s all about click, click, next. Sure we get our information and entertainment in just a matter of seconds, but where can you find the lesson and experience from that?
It’s like we are regressing to a time where no skill, creativity or thought matters. And this can be seen by the products of today. Sure they are as technologically advanced as ever. However, for the users, it’s not so much.
What happened to the days of Lincoln Logs or Connect Four? Those were games that involved some strategy and made us think for a damn second. Now we just press a button and burn our eyes out. Great.
