Most definitely not!! I pick up games on GOG sometimes for nostalgia, but it's rare for me to play any of them for more than a few hours. Even the deepest of games was simplistic by today's standards - there's only so much you can cram into 48K of memory.I think, the old games were more fun, now the new games might have good graphics and all, but old games were more fun to play? Do you agree?
♦ No saves. Yep, so many games with no freakin' saves—not fun!

Not just old games!Hey, want to walk along a wall and press the spacebar over and over to see if there's a secret door ANYWHERE on this entire level?
Have to second the Pokemon thing. The last purely 2D generation is where my heart's at. It's just such a lovely place to be.Depends on the game. I still play Civ 3 on a regular basis because it's much simpler than Civ 5 & 6. I have the original Mafia and Mafia DE, but which game do I boot up when I want to run around 1930s Chicago? The original. Same goes for Pokemon. I grew up with gen 1 & 2, so gen 3 looks ideal to me and the new ones are just "weird".
Old games are still cherished today because they represent an era of innovation and excitement in the 80s and 90s. Back then, players relied on magazines for information and eagerly anticipated game releases. Today's technology may offer convenience, but it has somewhat diminished the thrill. Nostalgia for platforms like Commodore 64 and Amiga, along with simpler but highly enjoyable games like Pong and Atari 2600, highlights the enduring appeal of fun, engaging gameplay and memorable experiences. Recent years have seen games becoming more similar and focused on trends like Battle Royale modes. The prevalence of game remakes and remasters reflects a desire to recapture the gaming spirit of those earlier years.There are very important reasons why old games are still missed and played today. Actually, it's a really long topic.
This is a bit about the period. When we look at the 80s and 90s, we saw many different and innovative games. Every company was trying to find something new. Because there was serious excitement among the players. We didn't have platforms like Google or YouTube. We were reading magazines and trying to get information through articles. It was very important to research, follow up and find new information.
Yes, technology is a good thing. Now we can find anything and reach many things by typing a word or a sentence. However, unfortunately it took away some of our excitement. I remember waiting eagerly for months to see photos from a pc game.
When we look at the platforms of the period, we should definitely not forget Commodore 64 and Amiga. They are the computers on which I started playing many great games. Today, I still play various games on Commodore 64.
Afterwards, I had the chance to try platforms such as Pong and Atari 2600. And we were really having fun. Yes, it seems like very simple games today, but it was definitely fun. Because they were the real game.
Yes, graphics are important but what about fun? Scenario? Atmosphere?
I don't even remember a game that I sat down and played for hours in recent years. But it wasn't like that before.
When I go back to the 90s, I remember playing Silent Hil 1, Tomb Raider and Resident Evil for hours on the Play Station 1 platform. It was amazing.
I think after 2009, the games started to resemble each other and the competition decreased. Almost every game has started adding a Battle Royale mode.
Today, we see many remake or remaster games being made in the gaming industry. So I guess it's all back to square one. I think the reason why this is so is that they are trying to bring back the gaming spirit of the old years.
