    old games are good for serious gamers and casual alike. I always feel like with modern games there is a huge learning curve period where you get owned mercilessly.

    Old School, hands down. Nowadays, kids are way too spoiled. They need to have a save point every 2 seconds…AND they need it to do it automatically because they can't be bothered to do it manually. Also, awesome graphics does NOT make a good game. Take the Final Fantasy series for example. I've stopped playing it because it's just a movie now. I think FFX was the last one I tried to play. I shit you not…an entire HOUR went by of cinematics and I STILL didn't get to hit any gameplay. Cinematics used to be the treat you got for doing something awesome. Now, gamers won't play a game if it doesn't show something exploding in hi-def every other minute. What a sorry bunch modern gamers are. 😦

    MMO designs need a kick in the arse, but unfortunately they're getting so costly to develop nowadays that developers aren't willing to take chances with innovative ideas, and we end up with multiple variations of the same type – the level based theme park where you rehearse scripted fights until you get the next shiny piece of armor, which is rendered obsolete with the next content patch. Boring…

    I'm still waiting for someone with the money and talent to build a worthy successor to UO (and no, DFO and MO are crap and don't cut it)

    #6 No way in hell is that GT5, more like GT2…

    Depends on the game, some modern games are so much better, some old school games age well (others age terribly).
    Just look at Uncharted 3, the technology that has gone into that is phenomenal, that just couldn't be possible a decade ago, and if it came out a decade ago it would probably be terrible as well.

    games rock doesn't matter how old you are or how old the game is

  • Honest Bob

    Stupid question. That's like saying Bach or The Beatles.

    Both great, in their time, and I'm sure in another 20 years we'll look back on the wii and get all mushy.

    Some old some new, punch out ftw!

  • Dave

    sorry , no input. Work, life, and my wife keep me to busy to game. Oh, and The Chive of course

  • katie

    #3 Golden Eye will forever be awesome
    #4 Zelda- Nintendo 64!!! I am currently playing again but the new looks good- just have not played
    #8 Do I even need to say it? Mario, there I said it

    But for the most part, new is better.

  • Jason Z

    Goldeneye changed everything. One of the best games ever made – hands down. And fudge all of those racing games…..F Zero all the way!

  • MylesofStyles

    I played Galaga for three hours straight last time I got stoned, so I'm easy.

  • 0_0

    Can't decide give me both

    I think that you really should have compared more games to their next generation counterpart. LIke why compare marble madness to portal? And why not compare old school mortal kombat to the newly released mortal kombat? As opposed to soul caliber? Just my little 2 cents…

  • Bob

    I think it all comes down to the type of game. If you're talking about any game where the objective is a high score, then I don't think it really matters (Asteroids and Super Stardust HD are essentially the same game, but SSHD has amazing graphics). But if I'm playing a game for a story (God of War, Silent Hill, Fable, etc…) then the new generation games got it all over the School of Olde. My basic logic is if I'm paying money to be entertained by the content, then it better be top notch all the way around.

    #3 Easily Goldeneye amazing multi player. Where's ocarina of time? The N64 ruined my grades in school!

  • Dr. Science

    IGN wrote a great article about this, people feel a great feeling of nostalgia about old school games like goldeneye, Final Fantasy VII and super mario, but to play them now is really quite boring. I mean old school games had vast limitations in their size, length and graphics so to make them replayable they were (n the case of 8-bit NES games) quite difficult.

    People just like the feeling they get thinking back on the age when tese games came out. For me I will never forget sitting in my buddies basements playing Goldeneye and Starfox64 for hours (and probly gettin stoned……)

    Classic games for the WIN.

    the mind numbing gaming, the hours you would spend with the game, you connected to the game.. it was a bond that would last for a lifetime.. still to this day I think about the classic games, and now I purchase them to relive those days of playing them.

    Now you get a xbox/ps3 game and you beat it within a day, what happened to making the games difficult, I really don't give two shits about the cinematography between levels, WHICH they focus on way more then the game play… COME ON MAN.

    Final conclusion: Remember how mad, funny, good, you felt when you would be the person who would blow into the Nintendo game and Finally got it to work?
