Kotaku: Will We Still be Able to Play our Games in 20 Years?

I really enjoy playing old games. This will come as no surprise to readers that keep up with our Friday Old Games series. But when I do get in the retro mood, I almost always play on the real console.

i just hope your biased journalism doesnt last that long...

try playing a dos or win95 game running win7....
i can't play battlefield 2, civ4 or nothing after getting win 7.

Imperator2742d ago

I can play Civ4 on Windows 7. Guess it varies.

Just run Win7 in XP compatibility mode, and you can play all of those games. If you knew how to use a computer, you wouldn't have a problem.

Raf1k12742d ago

Yep, compatibility mode usually does the trick. BF2 and Civ4 work fine on Win7 for me.

SOAD2742d ago

Yup. That is why I think PC is the definitive gaming platform. That's right, I said it.

I don't know if today's console's will even last that long, they seem prone to breaking easier with today's technology. I wish that they would though.

Of course, in 20 years we'll be able to download (in seconds) "classics" such as Uncharted 2 on our...whatever we use.

You can still buy Super Nintendos on Ebay so there is no reason why in 20 years you couldn't buy a PS3 or a 360 on the internet.
