Many of us have been playing games for decades now, which means we’ve seen a lot. Huge advances in computing technology, the evolution of controller schemes, the rise and fall of Gex the Gecko: there’s been a lot at which to marvel. Bryan Rumsey from Gamer Jockies wonders whether we’ve reached the point where the capability of games to inspire a sense of wonder has diminished.
