5 Things I Miss About Old-School Gaming

CraveOnline write: "Video games have evolved so much over the past three decades that it's almost unfathomable to consider how far we've come. There was a time not too long ago when jaws were dropping at the sight of Super Mario 64, but now we can control our games using nothing but the movement of our hands, we can hop into a server populated by thousands of other players and we can play games that were once considered to be technical powerhouses on our smartphones. Yes, all of that is amazing, but there are some things I miss about old-school gaming that I'll likely never see again. Here are 5 of those things." (Retro)

When I was a kid my parents did not allowed me to have a n64, so I played Zelda Ocarina of Time on a console in a toys-store. They resetted the memory card almost every day, but me and some friends came back each day and got faster and progressed through the game (in the end, when they forbid us to be there) we did not completely finish the game, but man that was endurance we had and I miss that in current games.

i missed classic game design, games like shadow man, like soul reaver, Berserk guts rage, old FPS games like Doom Quake, hexen, duke nukem, goldeney, Twine, perfect dark, timesplitters etc...

not that games today are bad, they are great, i love them but the the old game design is definately better, if u mix the old game design with todays standards/immersion......MINDB LOWN

imagine shadow man or soul reaver on unreal engine 4.....MINDBLOWN AGAIN
