The good ole days will be last gen to most because it had so many ground breaking games never before seen and it was the most popular generation because it brought in so many new gamers and started online gaming.

Last gen is like 60's rock, this gen is like 70's, not too shabby.

Soon it's gonna be all first person shooters with dlc and membership programs galore and lots of free to play casual junk.

Enjoy it now!

Nah, I reckon good ol' days were pretty much PS2, if not PS1 era gaming. New, fresh, exciting, colourful titles which werent plagued by patches or DLC or tacked on multi-player or online passes or subscription based bullshit.

Developers strived to make the best possible game with as much content loaded in because once that disc shipped, there was no more you could do to it. No fixes, no additions, no characters nothing. One shot was all they had, so they had to get it perfect the first time or risk losing money because of it.

Yea sometimes I miss the older days of gaming. I found my old box of PC games with all the Might and Magic games,Elder Scrolls 2 Daggerfall and other PC games. I have been playing them over the past week and have been having great fun with them. Miss those days

My 'Good old days' were 90's PC games.

This gen is not great, all the games play the same.
