Of all the recreational activities that have improved since the 90s, playing video games with your friends has to be near the top of the list. I’m not talking about the entertainment level or playability of the game, but rather the act of getting your friends together and playing a game that you all love. If you’re too young to remember when Sega and Nintendo were the only options in town, then you have no idea how convenient your gaming sessions are now.
