Though video games have made enormous leaps in quality over the last 10 years, the problems people have while playing them haven't gone away - those everyday problems simply changed with the times.

In a 12-panel comic strip published by Estonian artist Mart Virkus, creator of a webcomics blog Arcade Rage, the dilemmas of gamers in the '90s and early '00s are compared to those in recent years in a hilariously minimalist cartoon drawing style. The ubiquitous advent of Pokemon Go is most certainly referenced. Day-one gamers will find these relatable comics and the contrasts depicted all too real.

Have a look at these hilariously funny comics, have a walk down the memory lane, and tell us in the comments how your gaming woes have changed.
