I do love some of the games i grew up with. My first system was the SNES. I was to young to play NES before the Snes came out. I was around 3 or 4 so that was like 20 years ago now yes im old.
I feel Retro gamers hype old games so much more then they deserve. Yes they were fun and i do agree gaming has lots some of its charm. But Gaming today is way better. We get some much more for the money. Deeper stories,huge worlds amazing graphics and so on.
Yet people like the game over thinker act as if gaming today is awful and soooooooo much better back then.
What i think killed consoles most for retro gamings would be the XBOX. IT really pulled in lots of FPS fanboys and got ports from the pc. After XBOX live it seemed everyone had to play fps games.
What do you think will replace the FPS? I feel the reason why devs love it so much is due to it being easy to make then being original and they know thats all western gamers care about these days.
Do you feel that old games are so much better then today? If so why do you feel this way?
