To me gaming didn't start until the NES, everything before that was like stone age stuff. I can't go back and play any Atari games. I like some of the arcade classics though but that is about it. So yeah this thread is too old for even me.

There is still some hope for you, though. GG can't stand even NES visuals. LOL

But GG is worse, he is a traitor to his own time period. I was born in 83, by the time I understood what a game was the NES was out so of course that would be where my gaming begins. GG is my generation, and he hates the era he belonged too. How dare he. Nyaa

LOL Yeah, he betrays his own memories. He's probably having nightmares right now about pixellated sprites and low-res backgrounds.

For the most part I agree with GG that NES games are pretty well unplayable nowadays whereas i find that a lot of SNES and Mega Drive games look good and play well still today.  But the reason I say for the most part is there are exceptions.  I can think of the Super Mario Bros. games and Punch-Out at least and there maybe more, and for this reason I can't make a wholesale statement that pre-SNES games are shit today, but the vast majority of them have got very long in the tooth

Even though I've been exposed to gaming for a long time, and old people tend to be nostalgic about the good old days, I can see that gaming has never been better than it is today.  There has never been so many talented and intelligent people working in game development and that is represented by the games that make it to the public.

Beyond quality there is also a diversity in game types available (every genre gets quality entries).

I still have all my old systems hooked up (from Atari 2600 on), and let me tell you, a lot of these old systems don't hold up.  It's even difficult to go back to the Dreamcast (just 10 years old), with it's long load times, loud drive and poor quality hardware -- and up until a few years ago I thought the Dreamcast was the best system ever made.

EDIT: "don't" in bold was ommitted from original post - doh!

I don't really feel nostalgic actually, I had a lot of fun playing theses games 25 years ago, I have lot of fun playing games now. I like playing old games for 2 reasons: historic value and a pride that tells me that I have to beat theses games!

And I am proud to say that I have beaten Pyjamarama o/

Pyjamarama is an 1984 games developped by Chris Hinsley it's the second of a series  featuring Wally and/or members of his family. The story is simple, you (as Wally) are living a nightmare and you have to find a way to wake yourself up before being late at work.



Being in an nightmare and all, your house if full of weird monsters and you'll have to solve some puzzle to be able to set your alarm clock. And that was my main problem 25 years ago, I was never able to solve any of theses puzzle.

...

The fact that the game was in English didn't help though Nyaa No need to say, the game became way easier with some English vocabulary (wait, what? that round thingy was just an helmet! I thought it was a flat ball!) and with a pen and some paper I managed to solve all the puzzle in a few days. It was not that easy though, some puzzle had absolutely no logic, and some had some logic only after solving them >_>

But well, now it's done! And I'm proud of me o/. Next game will be one of my favourite Amstrad game: Starquake. I spent hours and hours on this one <3

You know there was this Amstrad beat em up I used to love. It was tough as nails and you fought on a subway level with these Mr T like dudes trying to beat you up.

Wow, that's the one. Grinning Tough as nails though. Was this ever on the NES too? I wouldn't mind trying out a VC version.

Yeah, it was ported on NES in 1987 but there was also an arcade version, so that makes 2 chances to have it on VC ^^

Ahhhh Renegade.  Good times there.  A buddy of mine owned that when we were kids and it was pretty much the only half way decent game he had so I always made it a point to play it whenever I went over to his house. . . unfortunately his dad was a bastard and always made us play outside after 30 minutes of videogames so I never got real far on it.

remember playing renegade on a friend's amstrad with the screen that was just shades of green.  it wasn't bad enough you had to wait for it to load from the tape to start the game ... you then had to wait for each subsequent new level to load.  

so much happier everything is now so much easier and more convenient with the PS3.  oh, wait!
