or do "young people" these days don't appreciate anything older then 2000? Today I talked to FIVE people, between the ages of 18 and 26, and none of them had seen Point Break. Or Casablanca, or Easy Rider. At this point I don't have any hope for the future, and I'm 22!

"Hey, what's on the wall today?"

"Paint."

"Awesome, I missed Paint yesterday. I hope I can still follow what's going on."

I can't remember the exact sequence, but in a class last year I started discussing the corridor fight scene in Old Boy. No-one had seen that, which is fair enough, albeit a criminal shame. I suggested that perhaps The Usual Suspects might be an English language equivalent in terms of the quality of story telling. No-one had seen that. I kept on going for another three or four films before ending up discussing John Williams's scores and finally having to use Harry Potter which at last most people had seen.

I understand I'm a bit of a movie buff, but there were a lot of films along the way that were fairly mainstream and that are informing developing media. I think games developers will be a bit out of touch if they aren't aware of them... Then again, when I was in my late teens I probably hadn't seen enough of the useful cultural touchstones to talk about them either.
