With all the various sales going on with Black Friday and all, I couldn't help myself and decided to pick up Burnout Paradise. It wasn't my favourite Burnout game, but at such a low price I thought "might as well". When I first played the game back in 2008, I found it annoying to constantly check the map during a race or time trial event, which was a common complaint amongst some Burnout fans. Yet, upon playing it now in 2022, this issue isn't as big of a problem as I remember. This is likely down to the fact that I'm relying more on the game to tell me when to make a turn, and the result is that I'm actually quite enjoying Paradise far more than I was expecting. A similar thing happened to me with both Ico and Demon's Souls (and I really hated Demon's Souls at first), which just goes to show you how a few years can drastically change your outlook on something.
So to you, person reading this, have you gone back to a game you once disliked only to be pleasantly surprised?
