Long time lurker, 5th time poster. My first 3 posts were in the excellent FFIV-Ultima thread in the personal project section. 8-Bit-Fan's work there is really bringing me back to the smell of my SNES and the basement I played it in during the early 1990s in rural South Dakota. The excitement of going to the video mania in Sioux falls, all the SNES and NES carts flattened and laminated, sitting in bins ready to be flipped through and rented. You even got a token to spin a slot machine (which would net you free rentals if you won, actually nailed it one time for a cash prize but couldn't accept it because I was 7, so got 10 free rentals).
I remember the first time playing FFIV, watching the redwings fly through the sky, the music, I can remember the way the air tasted. Then memory flashes to the party screen with Tellah, Cid, Yang and Cecil in the tower of Babil and waking up at like 4am before school on Monday (they day the game had to go back) to play it more.
It's a feeling I thought I'd never get to feel again (as I never managed to get a physical copy), but then I found emulation a few years later. Fast forward 25 years and I am in my early 30s, and found myself with that feeling all over again playing some of the amazing work on this forum. We have an opportunity no generation before us really does, to take the works we enjoyed and to make them even better!
(You could try with the Beatles music or Van Gogh's art, but something in that form isn't really conducive to being "enhanced").
Somewhat long intro I suppose, but I truly wanted you random strangers to know that your work helps me achieve a level of child like excitement that is rare for any adult to feel.
I hope to get the opportunity to sample and support some other works here in the future.
