if its not Call Of Duty its a bad Game
I've always enjoyed old retro games. I generally think their more challenging. Plus there is something I've always found cool about the 80s.
They generally are more challenging, and I think there are three main reasons for that:1. Hardware limitations. It wasn't possible to make a game that was too much easier than what they had on hand. For instance, you can pretty easily tell that most SNES and Genesis games are a lot easier than NES games and arcade games.2. There were less games available back then, and part of what made video games so enticing was the fact that they were so difficult to beat in the first place. It gave them a greater replay value because it was so difficult to get through them.3. The lack of saving ability. I was watching a documentary last night about Sega and one of the things that came up was that Sonic the Hedgehog was designed around rewarding players for speed because you'd have to replay the same early levels so often as a result of not being able to save your progress when you got to a certain level, so you'd master early levels pretty quickly. Of course, some games like Metroid circumvented it with a password system and saving was created for The Legend of Zelda, but most games back in the day just plain didn't have it.
Well when I was a child my first console was Sega Genesis, so of course I grew up with the Sonic games and I love them. Gotta say I prefer the very old Sonic games still over the new ones. Dunno if it's just nostalgia or the new ones just suck xD
I'm honestly suprised you of all people didn't reference the Silver Surfer on NES.
...Why would I? It's a downright terrible game and the only redeeming thing about it is the background music.
Because it's relevant to your avatar, signature, and this quote, "They generally are more challenging, and I think there are three main reasons for that..."
