Retro Games Suck

Atari, NES--man, those were some great games. Well, that's how Amy Nelson at Goozer Nation remembered them anyway. Boy, did we think those games were awesome when we were kids, so how bad could they be?

I think retro games are sweet, they have a specialness to them. This guy is just WHACK.

Retro games is a big reason why games today exist.

Some retro games I put way over what we have today

this article is one of the most pathetic I've ever seen

don't look at the graphics so much (which were awesome for its time by the way) and look at the gameplay, Mario games poo on most of the platformers made today, lol

i love a bit of retro action its like shagging an older woman, its really good frantic fun but she's a hard biatch that will punish you for your mistakes...

And playing some of the retro games helps us do that. Just because they are not as awesome in some ways as the games today, they still have their own flare and have added much to the gaming world. We cannot forget those games and for those of us who grew up with them, we will more than likely be the last to truly appreciate them for what they are and what they were then.

Retro games have something that most games today lack, a challenge.

Edit: If I felt like it, I could hook up my NES right now and play The Legend of Zelda for hours. It's a pretty addicting game lol.

Zelda Link to the Past
Chrono Trigger
Final Fantasy 3/6
Mario 3
Ninja Gaiden 2

I could go on

"Atari, NES--man, those were some great games." Don't they mean consoles? Wasn't aware there was a game called 'Atari' or 'NES'.

We wouldn't have todays games. Plus like logichurtsfanboys said, they were challenging. Todays games are WHEN you beat them, not IF you can beat them like the old ones.

yeah that was mostly the case back in the days, even if you did make it all the way to the end, you still have to fight the impossible boss or some other ridiculous challenge :P

First off, three words. Cathode Ray Tube.

Not only is she just plain wrong on the graphics (of course an HD TV is going to make your old games look bad, the systems were not made for an HD TV! They'll look awful on one! That's why stuff is upscaled in the emulation scene such as VC or PS Store), but she's missing the point. It's all about the game's mechanics, rule set, simplicity or level of complexity, level of human ingenuity put into it (or "gameplay"). It's all about the minds behind the games and how those games affect the mind of the player, not just how spiffy something looks.

In fact, Amy is missing that point altogether, whether concerning retro or current-gen games. Nowhere near qualified to reach a big-time site. This is why Goozer Nation blogs do NOT COUNT AS NEWS. This isn't Stupid4Gamers. Stop approving this.
