Alright, gaming buffs, let's crack this riddle together—why aren't our beloved vintage video games making a free grand comeback? Well, first up, remember that creating games isn't a charity gig, folks! Studios need the moolah to keep churning out those awesome adventures we love to dive into. Secondly, there's a neat little thing called licensing—imagine trying to untie a hundred-year-old knot, that’s what sorting out old licenses feels like! Lastly, there's the question of compatibility. Our devices today are like millennials at a 70s disco—just can't vibe with the old beats without a little modern remixing, and that ain't free, my friends!
