New NES sites
Sorry if the title was misleading, as much as I'd like to rave about Donny, Joey and the rest of the gang, this rant is about NES sites. Particularly the ones made in the last 8 months or so. You know, it really chaps my hide, some self proclaimed "scene veteran" will come along and say "look how things are deteriorating, just look at the quality of NES sites today" without ever elaborating further. I for one am saying "yeah, what about them?". How do you think it makes someone like me with a new site feel to see this being said? The truth is, the great new sites out-number the bad 6 to 1. They are often the most updated and most willing to go off in a new direction. Why don't we take a look at some of them (not even touching on my own site):
Willymans NES Games Page O Wierd
Well, its not exactly all that new anymore (it was made in March), but it is a wonderful site. Substantial reviews, fair mix of humor and serious NES coverage, and it's updated frequently.
Again I ask, where is the problem? Another excellent site that's updated at least twice a week, has such original sections as NES site reviews and everything is written well enough that it keeps me reading (which is more than I can say about most sites).
Dan's NES site
OK, those previous 2 were givens, but this site is greater than it appears. It has a lot of unique sections, it just has a personal touch that lets you know this guy really likes NES. For some reason I just gotta laugh at that NES world war thing. Unfortunately, he's been having problems with his account and cannot update :(
This Old NES
This site is updated EVERYDAY, more or less, and features some of the funniest things you will ever read, the Katieholmes76 prank calls, plus a lot of great stuff to download. Keep an eye on this one.
So there you have it. Now could anyone tell me exactly what is the problem with new sites? I am just not seeing it.
