Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
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.
