Are retro games better than modern games ? This is my opinion.
I'm 24 and when I was growing up I played everything from Atari 2600, Nes, arcade machines at the arcade, Playstation, Xbox, Super Nintendo, N64, Gamecube, Nintendo handheld and the list goes on and on. Lately I was wondering if modern games had lost their touch with reality with how most modern games were poor. Some of the classic games have aged well and are still fun while others are not. I recently got an emulation machine and I love it. I was introduced to Sega consoles a few years ago after I bought Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection and that led to me buying a few Sega games on the marketplace. The Genesis is now one of my all time favorite consoles and so I combined it with the Nes and Super Nintendo on my Emulation Machine. This all led to my return of many games that I loved and entire libraries that I had missed. A classic game that I loved back in the day was Ice Hockey on the Nes and I was so excited to play it the other night. I didn't play it long because the game itself has no rules and it all boils down to button mashing. It's very difficult to have played NHL all of these years only to return to my first Hockey game were the players fight each other for the puck like prisoners fighting over who gets to take a woman out on a date for the night.

I deleted the game because it was Hockey of the Stone Age. I completed my childhood dream of beating Karate Kid on Nes by discovering that no more than two bad guys can be on the screen at once and thus I blazed through the game after some trial and error. A fantastic game that I recommend to all after i had completed it is Spartan X 2 that is Kung Fu 2 in Japan. You see back in the day I loved Kung Fu and when I was playing it I knew that it was garbage by the terrible hit detection, random enemy patterns and awful enemy designs. I've played lots of bad games in the NES library thus far because back then there really were no standards yet. Wolverine and Uncanny Xmen are prime examples of this. I grew up loving Uncanny Xmen and nowadays I'd say that it's a joke of a game.


There are good and bad games even for retro standards. At first I was like many people that said "Back in the day.." because I had rose tinted glasses on. I played really bad games like Adventures of Dino Riki, Adventures of Bayou Billy (I grew up hating that one), Bad Dudes, Action in New York, Kick Master, Astyanax and the list goes on and on and I can firmly say that I'd rather play a Call of Duty or Battlefield game over any of those any day of the week. While they might be generic games at least they aren't terrible and badly programmed anomalies like the above posted are.


Modern gaming has come a long way and I'm happy about that. If you thought that movie titles of today are mediocre then I'd recommend that you play the Terminator games, Alien 3, Predator and Total Recall games because games like Spiderman 3 look like triple AAA 10/10 games compared to those. I love retro games and many games are still as fun to play as ever. Mario games, F-Zero, Star Fox, Mario Kart, Streets of Rage and the list goes on and on. With that said I'd say that modern gaming developers are on the right track with games of today and we can live in a world were we can love retro and modern games at the same time. I grew up with Ms. Pac Man in the arcade and at the same time I can play Skyrim and be just as happy as I did the first time that I put those coins in that machine.

It's as good as I'd hoped. Not quite L4D, but worth it.
