Now I try to put myself in the shoes of Flash or Baby. Flash is 15 years old: He was 5 when SC was released. I don't know about the rest of you, but I hardly remember more then random snippets of my life before I was about 8. I certainly don't remember more then a few key memories from before I was 5. I absolutely wouldn't remember the release of a new computer game, no matter how big, at the age of 5.
So I am going to speculate that, essentially, Flash never knew a world without SC. Much in the same way that I never knew a world without Baseball or Soccer or.. or computers. Computers is a good one: they have existed since the day I was born. We have always had a computer in our house for as long as I can remember. Being on a computer is as normal to me as walking, but it is not so for my parents. They witnessed the introduction of computers into society.
Essentially I have some sort of comfort level with computers that they can never have. Even today, because they were around before personal computers really existed, computers seem.. Less natural. Less obvious. It seems to them much like they truly are: a man made creation that the world can exist without.
But to me the idea of a world without computers is hard to really wrap my head around. Obviously I know it existed and I can try to think of what it was like, but I can not really know for sure. Computers are simply a part of my world. They are as natural, comfortable, and automatic as lakes or trees.
Now try to put yourself in that mindset for SC. Flash has always known SC. It has always existed.. It is as natural and automatic for him as walking.
That is why the new generation players are going to be impossibly strong compared to the previous generation players.
