    I'm on the spectrum, so one might say I'm predisposed to prefer "old" over new. That's not entirely the case, but my mind does like to lure me with photographic memories of the great times I've had playing older games or watching great movies. Much like some people have comfort foods, WoW is very much my comfort game. And since most of the gameplay is repeatable, one might argue practically all of it is old as soon as I've done it once already.

    One great example of how I tend to approach games is the Mass Effect series. I've played through the entire trilogy many times now, but always as the practically identical female Shepard and I always play the exact same lawful paragon character making the exact same decisions every playthrough. I'm not experiencing a new story nor even experiencing the same story in a new fashion, but I'm enjoying myself all the same on each playthrough.

    And the Half-Life series of games is probably my favourite franchise of all time. That's about as linear as single player story based games go, so the story's 100% the same every playthrough, yet I love replaying it anyway.

    As for whether I like old things more than new? Not necessarily. Sure, there are some obvious examples of old being better than new, like Terminator 2 being better than any that proceeded it. But I'm sure I'd love Half-Life: Alyx as much as the previous entries in the franchise if I actually had a VR headset to play it on. I'm also a huge fan of the original Bladerunner, but Bladerunner 2049 is a goddamn masterpiece that in my opinion surpasses the original.

    TL:DR It's hard to make a sweeping statement about old or new being better. It depends.

    Depends on what we're talking about. Just because it's newer doesn't mean it's better, but at the same time technology has advanced quite a bit. It's a case by case situation for me.

    New. I enjoy new experiences over routine. I have a generally unfavorable view of traditions as well- I view them as a kind of social prison.
