Old Games For The Win.

edited June 2007 in Games and Technology
So there's a thread that's going on trying to shoot down the OP's... opinion (arguably) on how old games suck, and here I present to the good people here a thread to discuss old games on all consoles, the good ones, the bad ones, the painful ones. Undeniably, most, if not all of our fondest gaming memories in gaming has to do with old, if not ancient games, and while I don't consider myself old by any means, I've played a fair share of old games through Freeware releases or bargain bin buys; although some of the old games are honestly becoming a little bit unplayable.

I just bought myself Starlancer which in my opinion is mindblowingly awesome with Co-Op, downloaded both Hidden & Dangerous and Ground Control [both free to download], rebought Final Fantasy 7 and 9. These are a few examples of the huge amount of awesomeness that old games hold, if one is willing to overlook innovations or graphical improvements that has conquered the gaming world (sorta). [Though honestly, H&D is bordering on unplayable with its limited draw distances].

Anyway, old games still rock. Some of them suck. But most of them rock.

Discuss.

    I have a confession to make. I've never played Super Smash Bros. Melee, but I regularly pull out the N64 so that my wife and I can beat each other up in the original.

    Also, I didn't play FFVII until I bought a PS2 (my brother and I had an N64 instead of a PSX), and I liked it, but I think playing it late took away some of the wow factor. 3D wasn't new anymore, and as early 3D games go FFVII is pretty ugly.

    The retro games that I continually go back to are the old school platformers. Super Mario Bros. 2 and 3 (I've never beaten 1...World 8 can fuck right off), Super Mario World, and Sonic 2, 3, and Knuckles (I loved 1 when it came out, but I miss the spin dash when I go to replay it).

    Why aren't platformers as good now as they were then? Don't get me wrong, I loves me some Sly Cooper, but it's not quite the same. And I liked Jak and Daxter and Ratchet & Clank, too, but they're more about gunplay than platforming.

    I'm stuck with a chinese computer system for atleast the next 10-12 weeks that doesn't have the ram required to run windows (224 megs). That and it has a onboard S3 video card as my only option. Old games are all I have to pass the time while I save money.

    Also, some old games never got new games that made them obsolete. Xcom is a perfect example because even xcom Apoclypse screwed up the formula that was genius from the first two IMHO of course. Every Xcom clone thats come out in the last 3-4 years, and there have been alot, have all had glaring differences that subtract from the experiance, and didn't make me think the game was really all that good, just another half assed attempt.

    But yea, my current play list right now is Xcom: TFTD, Age of Wonders: Shadow Magic, MegaMek.Net (woot BAttletech), and an online game of Sorcerors Crusade I am playing with friends back in the states via ventrillo and OpenRPG. I don't believe in Oblivion you can be a Playboy Thief that uses Time and physical magic to finance his fake noble background, while stopping evil forces and their various evil plots.

    Ground control free to download? Really?
    I bought it back in the day. Great game.

    Anyway, I play a fair mixture. I'll still hold Planescape: Torment, Fallout 2, Sonic 3&K and unheard-of classics like Giants and Sacrifice over many games.

    Some old games get way too much respect. I'm all for reverence but Metal Gear was a pretty shitty NES game even in it's hayday.

    FF9 though, which was mentioned, is easy in my top 5 all time for excellent games

    I thought FF9 was the worst of the PS1 FFs.

    Also, I've been playing Wolfenstein 3-D lately. Up to ep4. Still pretty fun although i miss the traditional mouse and keyboard setup of today's FPS. Xbox 360 controller for the save!

    Despite not being that big of a Nintendo fan, I will replay Ocarina of Time and Super Metroid just about every year, and I will so but Super Metroid again when it comes out on the VC, and I'd probably buy OoT DS if it came out next year. (It would sorta make sense, 10th Anniversary and all.) I love them so much.

    Also, despite them being ported to everything under the sun, I've only recently discovered the old Resident Evil games, and I'm having a blast. Too bad Umbrella Chronicles had to go the route it did.

    I think the problem with platformers now is the prerequisite that every game now needs to be 3D, because "teh kidz" don't go for 2D graphics anymore. Games like Ratchet and Clank and Jak and Daxter excel as examples of the genre in recent years, but they focus more on combat than difficult jumping/navigating.

    I don't know about you, but a common complaint I hear from people about 3D is that they have trouble judging perspective and/or distance in a 3D landscape, so the harder jumps and obstacles in games like R&T or J&D give your average gamer more trouble than they might have in a 2D game. I think this might be what forces developers to concentrate less on platforming and more on other aspects of the game to flesh it out.

    I was a sucker for PC adventure games from LucasArts and Sierra. Add to that Frederik Pohl's Gateway; the Myst series; and KEMCO's Shadowgate, Deja Vu, and Uninvited; Burncycle; and hell, The Legend of Zelda.

    My favorite platformers where the ToeJam & Earl games and E.V.O. though I guess E.V.O. isn't really that old.

    Then for flight(ish) sims, there's the Red Baron/Aces series from Dynamix (Sierra); the MechWarrior games (which I thought had unbelievable 3D at the time); Star Wars: X Wing, Imperial Pursuits, and B-Wing.

    The only FPS I can remember playing were Wolfenstein, Blake Stone, and eventually Doom. There was a great star wars FPS called Dark Forces or something like that, but that didn't come around until later.

    I didn't notice any poor production values, but Wiki is right that the compilations were fairly bare-bones. I didn't mind though because I had versions of some of my favorite games that worked on modern computers. How anybody could bitch about lack of extras when you get 5 or 6 games, though, is beyond me.

    To each their own I suppose, but if you're a fan of the various Sierra adventure series I think you'll have a good time with the compilations.

    Most NES games are kinda meh to me these days, but some of the classics are still a lot of fun (Mario games, Zelda, KIRBY!)

    The SNES is still probably my favorite system of all time, it had good sound, and could do just enough in the graphics department that even now the spirte based games can be pleasing to the eye, but couldn't 'wow' with just graphics, so the gameplay had to be really good to have staying power.

    Eh, just shoving DOSBox on a disc with the games in in some cases not even configuring it properly is shitty production values.

    Leaving out better versions of games.

    Including only pdf manuals, leaving the copy protection in and leaving the wrong manual on the disc so you'll have to Google for it to get past the copy protection...

    If you're a fan of Sierra adventure series, you'll cry when you see how little respect Sierra now has for them.

    I really don't understand the hate for FF7. Is it because it has a large fanbase? Because I thought the game was phenomenal. But it was my first 3D RPG, so it holds a place next to my heart, hehe.

    I was hugely disappointed by FF8, but I did still take the time to finish it completely. I thought FF9 was amazing. So I dunno, I have weird tastes. :)

    To be fair, my first FF was 8, then I played X, and then I went back and played VII. The only thing I really hated about it was that damned submarine minigame.

    I think the people that hate it... played it too late. I mean, there's nothing really, REALLY special about the game... except that it's the first good 3D RPG out for the PS1. That and it has a HUGE nostalgia factor to it... to me anyway.

    Aidyn Chronicles, Ogres Battle, Tetrisphere and Battlezone Rise of the black dogs- Are all games that took an old idea and improved it, even if its been perfected since then.

    The only thing I see wrong with King's Quest so far, is that for KQVI, they felt the need to change the portrait graphics. The DOS version I have has these beautiful portraits of all the characters as they talk, this version has some cheap 16bit redesign.

    Nothing big...just one of the most important damn features of the game IMHO

    The main form of entertainment at my friends' apartment now is a SNES. We'd be playing a lot of Tetris Attack, then a couple days ago I brought over Mario Kart and Tetris/Dr. Mario. It's great fun.

    SNES is the only "old games" system I still play with any regularity. I just gotta pop in Star Fox or Donkey Kong Country or Yoshi's Island or Super Mario World every now and again.

    The GBA version of Contra 3 is fantastic. I love that they through in Hard Corps levels because it made it fresh to me. Oh, and when buying the game I had to go into EB every day for about 3 weeks waiting for it to finally arrive.

    Contra 3 is actually pretty easy for me -- just because I've played it a million times.

    Everyone should go back on their SNES' and pull out the OG Mega Man X. That shit is too good for the human race. Also, it's easy enough in the beginning where you won't shoot yourself (ala the rest of the X series) but difficult enough in the end where I still haven't beaten that bastard. Any tips on that, by the way?

    I think everyone should just agree that FF 7-9 are still leaps and bounds above most of the other PS1 RPG's, so we should love them and accept their nuances differences. But Ff 7 is still better.

    Watch out for Link's Awakening, too. As a kid, I broke my ghetto blaster gameboy by slamming my face into it while playing that game. That's some serious love/hate.
