The best era in gaming and so many new ideas and IPs back then. Tech advanced so fast. Sonic 1 on Genesis to Sonic Adventure is 7 years apart. Mario World to Mario 64 just 5 years. The industry as a whole was still young then, Growing. Shareware was a thing. Expansion packs were just that. Smaller teams and even sometimes 1 person would program a game. The industry is now a corporate monster. Risk-averse. Cares nothing about creativity. Of course, any industry is always in to make money. Today it's about bleeding the customer dry and taking ownership away. Industry wants total control.
