Classic Gaming Will Always Have Its Place | GoozerNation

Jason Trent with GoozerNation says: "We've seen a recent resurgence of classic-style games lately. Mega Man 9 released on Wii ware almost almost a year and a half ago, and since then, it appears that developers are taken with the idea of offering gamers an experience that is both old and new. After Mega Man 9 saw critical and financial success, developers became more willing and eager to hearken back to the days of yester-decade. Mega Man 10 has since been announced, Dark Void 0 was released on Wii Ware along side its Next Gen counterpart, and even No More Heroes 2 has included elements from vintage games.

I really enjoy classic games, and games with classic elements thrown in. However, I'm usually not very good at them!

I don't really see the attraction in the classic games, but I guess if you used to play them, that's cool. It's all about nostalgia.

I often try to pick up an old game that I remember fondly. I find enjoyment for a time, but certainly not the tens of hours I get from the games created today. Nostalgia is something best left to our fond memories, which are so often better then it really was.

Nostalgia is part of it, because a lot of games haven't aged well but it's fun to go back for the memories, but a lot of classic games are still a lot of fun to play which is why I still keep a NES and SNES hooked up to the TV. Good with friends who also remember them.
