This got me to thinking.  Thomas, in your opinion, what are the modern games
like, in terms of coding style and sophistication, compared to the games
from years gone by that you've actually had a good look at the code of?  Are
modern games more complex?  Better written?  Are the old games (in general)
poorly written and sphagetti-like?

Just curious.
