After an argue amongst friends we started to discuss the value of "re-experienceing" consumed media. To clarify I mean media, such as books, films, games etc a second time around. Is it worth to go back and revisit these places again after you've finished them, or is that just a waste of time? One of my friends argue that once you have gone through a film/game you have already seen it and as there are constantly new amazing things being created you should focus on what lies ahead. As if we just keep going through the same old films and games, as good as they might be will be missing so so many new experiences that are being created each and every day.
Then my other friend argue that just because you revisit media which you already may have consumed might just help you. Going back allows you to grow a stronger bond with the material, see more details that you might have missed the first time as well as knowing that you will get a good experience. Just because you go back to old things doesnt necessary mean that you miss out on new cool stuff.
So I ask of you dear allies, where do you stand in this question? New is always better? or should we not forget old experiences that we might have had in awesome games and films?
Would be interesting to see where you all stand!
