Arcanum is currently kicking my tail. Like a 2d sandbox game, revolutionary as hell along with Baldur's Gate. So fun running those games now on a decent rig hooked up to a big screen tv and surround sound rather than when they were laggy and buggy and maxed out a good computer's capabilities when they came out. Thank goodness for GoG (not schilling for them, just happy they exist).
Spent chunks of deployment beating A Link to the Past, FFIII (here, six in Japan), and ChronoTrigger for the first time each.
I love older games. They got it right. And now, as opposed to my childhood, theyre super affordable and "fixed." Of course, gfx are deplorable by today's standards, but it's so much easier to get involved into the story and invested in the characters of those older games.
I love newer and older games, but everytime I see a newer game, try it out, and then get bored with it, that's when I fall back to the older games. I know they made a "Genesis Collection" for the PS3, and I think it's one of the first things I got when I first had the PS3. ANYWAYS...One of my favorite retro games would have to be "Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past" Of course, I also loved "Streets of Rage" and "Dynamite Heady"
i tend to enjoy older games alot more then newer ones. and ive probably spent more time playing older games then new ones. i didnt touch a single ps3 game and the only 360 title i even bothered to get was unreal tournament 3. so i guess this classifies me as a retro gamer.
although if nintendo ever releases a decent portable console which allows you to play old games like n64, gba and snes id be so there! and id probably lose interest in alot of next gen titles. (other then a rare game i find to be an absolute gem)
