    Can you still play your old games...

    i dont know if its cause im bored, nothing coming out that interest me or feeling broke. i was very excited when Final Fantasy XIII-2 came out and was blown away while playing it. i Plat'd it a week after getting it now i have nothing to play...


    I have a PS2 and i have Xenogear, Final Fantasy V and VIII, and Suikoden for the PSN...

    i tried to re-play one of my classic games and i felt bored...

    is it just me or have does anyone feel like this Gen of games made you lose interest in the Classic games

    Some games do, but some games don't. Games I consider classics I can always go back and play. Games that are soso I sometimes can't go back to them.

    I revisit my old PS2 and Xbox games quite often, and I have a small collection of Dreamcast and Mega Drive games on my PC. To me graphics and gameplay don't mean shit, as long as you're having fun nothing else matters.

    In fact I am re-playing the entire GTA series on my PC at the moment.

    maybe because you expected that same felling you had when you first got those games, plus there RPGS you really have to be in the mood to play them

    The same that happens to Theshadow happens to me. There are games (Chrono Trigger, FFVII/X/XII and A Link to the Past) that I can go back to at any given time and play for a while, while there are others that, while I like, I can't really be arsed to play for more than 30-60 minutes (CoD games being a good example).

    It simply depends what game it is. I think that if a game still has a compelling narrative than I can still play them to this day. For example, Metal Gear Solid or one of the great Final Fantasies. On the other hand if the game simply just had good gameplay for it's time and I try to go back and play it, I just cannot get into it.

    I always play SNES games when I'm bored of hunting trophies. Games like Zelda: A Link to The Past never get old to me.

    I have my PS2, so when I feel like playing my old games form it, I'll go ahead and play them. It's great to have a game system working for 10 years now.

    I occasionally go back and play some game I really like, like Champions of Norrath, San Andreas, and True Crime. Although I have unfortunately lost Battlefront 2 and Gauntlet Dark Legacy... I would really like an HD Gauntlet.

    Also my PS2 is amazing. My mom dropped a heavy plant with a concrete pot on it and cracked it, still works like a charm.

    I can still play Street Fighter 2, Marvel vs Capcom 1 and 2. A few others as well. As long as I find it interesting, I can play the games I grew up with.
    Doom runs a country, bitch! A nation of slaves! Dig you a grave! I'll make Umbrella look like Welfare, minimum wage! Doom is getting enraged! I come harder! Killed my ex-girlfriend and turned her into a suit of armor! Beat you to death with your legs, leave you in stitches, Marvel 2 is the shit, RE 5 is for bitches!

    Props for being the first to know what my username meant.

    To add what I said earlier, sports games I can almost never go back and play if the newer version is out. Maybe if its an old school day I could go a decade in the past and play NHL 95/94, but going a year back is kinda pointless now, unless its for easy trophies.

    Yeap, that's a Sony product for you. My PS and PS2 suffered a lot of abuse throughout the years and work perfectly (although the PS2's laser died over 3 years ago).

    Same here, although I do enjoy the NES/SNES era Hockey games, and Tecmo Bowl .

    I haven't done so in a while, but I may do so soon. I still have my ps2 games sitting in my shelf. I got rid of a few, but kept all the ones that I really thoroughly enjoyed.
