What is it that draws gamers back to a piece of entertainment that should end up like most of the others, gathering dust on a shelf or end its life in a bargain bin after being traded in?
Q What makes a classic game A It being on the PS3
It has to be good!
Centimental value - You were playing it when you were a kid and want to experience what you experienced back then. Delirius memories - You thought the game was great when you first played it but now it looks and is crap but your memory of it is miss created making you think that it's up to current standards. Extremely random game - Giving you a new experience everytime you play it. Extremely hard game - Has so hard acheivements you could't complete them, but you are giving it a try because you think you have become a more "skillfull" player. A Friends game - The game has a really great Co-op feature and you and your friends want to play together but all the current games have crap co-op's therefor your going back to the classic one. When you combine one or more of these features you have a legendary game that will keep you coming back for ages =) Examples of Epic games from my own experience: Diablo 1 and Diablo 2 Fallout 2 and fallout tactics Halo 1 warcraft 3 secret of mana counter strike
Something that's inspiring, but doesn't necessarily reinvent the wheel. But like most things, the definition of a classic game is subjective. I'd pick Final Fantasy X as a classic game, because it had everything in it I like (great story, graphics, game play, lasting appeal). However, somebody else could choose a completely different type of game such as Gears of War because it had all the elements they like to see in a game.
It must have a type of MGS story, I mean with alot of politics and plot twists.
Metal Gear Solid.
bubbles for that.
a game that has many sequels but the first and original one was the best
They are generally a shared experience among many people. They also have to be good, which makes the experience timeless. Those two things make them classics. Graphics and sound might date the games, just like black and white dates movies, but the experience of playing the game stays the same. A shared, timeless experience is what makes games classic.
