Right, whereas I didn't see anyone say much good about it until the kids of the 2000s came of age. Before that, Heroes was usually seen as the point where the series' downward spiral (which had arguably been happening for several years) became inarguable. Which backs up Laura's point, it seems like in broad strokes, most of the people who really like it played it when they were little. That's not unusual, and you shouldn't dare argue that somehow makes their affection for it any less valid when we're ALL adults talking about a children's video game series and MOST OF US probably love a game we wouldn't love were it not buoyed by the context in which we originally experienced it, but I definitely think that's the reason for the split in perception. More to Laura's point, that's sort of what I said, too!
