Old School Gaming?
« on: January 24, 2014, 03:25:49 PM »
Who still loves (And maybe occasionally play) older games? What systems are "Old" to you?

To me, Play Station (One), Sega Genesis, and the Nintendo GameCube are my favorite systems. My sister had a Nintendo sixty four but I never got to play much on it. Not sure if it could be considered old or not, but perhaps Play Station two and the old PSP (Version 1001) ?

I still play on the N64. :-) Mario Kart 64, Mario Party, and Pokemon Puzzle Party with one of my best friends.

I break out Nintendo games via emulator from time to time, but the system I'm most fond of is the SNES (which also comes out on emulator from time to time).

I wish I still had my Gamecube though. Loved Metroid Prime 1 and 2.

Oldschool though is anything before 1998 for me.

Ah I have mine but the cord is broken so I have to get a new one. I didn't have much else from Nintendo so I'm unable to say many games from there. Though on the GameCube my favorite, (And still my favorite game of all time) Is The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker.  I also enjoyed the Mario Party for GameCube. For the Sega I liked Crusader of Centy and Wonder Boy in Monster World.

Then for Play Station I liked Skull Monkeys and some other game that I can't find for it :o

Are you talking the oldest games system we currently own, or the oldest ones we played?  I had a Pong system when I was a wee Oni.

I had a Dreamcast, but only ever had Sonic Adventures 1 and 2, and Crazy Taxi 2. :3

Yeah, such a great system, too bad it didn't stick around too long.  I'm still waiting for Shenmue 3 to come out on one of the new consoles, that was a great game series.

I still have my Intellivision.... I also have a PS1, Game Gear, Dreamcast... I still need to find the one Mobile Suit Gundam for the Dreamcast yet... It played from a cockpit view, awesome for an old Mechwarrior fan like myself. I also still play classic Doom regularly...

Welcome to...

THE POWERSTONE WARS.

Screw Super Smash Bros., Powerstone is where it's at for funtimes fighttimes.

As for what I still currently play now and then, the oldest-school I get is probably the occasional nostalgia run of Marathon 2 or Thief for PC, or Final Fantasy Tactics or Tenchu for PS1. I haven't done any nostalgia gaming like that in a while, though.

Nah, yer not that old. I gave my NES to, I think, a cousin years ago. Or maybe that was my SNES and the NES had stopped working. I don't recall.

Regardless, this is what emulators are for! And Flash remakes and the like.

I used to own an Atari. Though my old school system would be the MSX. When I played Metal gear in that consol , I didn't expect it to be one of the biggest series after 2 decades.

Add to it ' Valkyrie Profile ' and you have me on the best nostalgia trip.

I still play a bunch of older games more than occasionally, I'd say. Command & Conquer is still one of my all-time favorites, same with the first X-COM. I also occasionally play SNES games, mainly the classic Final Fantasy ones.

I still pull out my old Tex Murphy-games from time to time, especially The Pandora Project which I have played through more times than I remember. Transport Tycoon Deluxe is another oldie I like to play, and Ports of Call was a lot of fun to re-visit a few years back.
