Still perfect after all these years

I just had a horrible experience with a game (its title was a play on jack of all trades) and it got me to thinking about how much I appreciate the makers of the Build a Lot series.
You know why? Becuase they didnt actually sit there and TRY to make a game that would be sold for $8.00. They put creativity and effort, care, money, time, etc. etc. etc. into making the BAL games and it shows. They're the only computer games out of the bazillions I've owned over the years that I (and many others) can just pick up on a whim and play for a few minutes or a few hours. They can be put down for days weeks months or even years. Literally.
I'm in some sort of angry-happy state right now as my brain tries to process the difference between the Build a Lots and so many of the other games coming out these days.
I sound like an old woman talking about "these young kids these days...." but I'm far from old. Well, in calendar years I'm far from old.
