I my self am a big fan of classic games. Iv always wondered what the rest of the community thinks , i just think classics are always better well a lest in 90% of cases better then expansions or new releases, but i don't know why i think that i just always enjoy classic better :| dose any one have a reason why?

i know i sound like an idiot but i'm just looking for a way to voice why i like classics better then expansions :| or new releases

The "classics" instituted many of the game-play mannerisms and plot twists and stories and themes that "new" games use. So the nostalgia factor is pretty high up there.

The new stories typically are disjointed and created more for money than originality and, let's face it, originality is a BIG piece of the puzzle when it comes to getting our endorphins going :)

Games like Doom and Wolfenstein and Half Life and Deus Ex, for example, established MANY of the elements seen in today's shooters and games like Fallout 3.

The freshest game I have played recently is Left 4 Dead and that was little more than a glorified version of Counter Strike, Zombie Mod. But, the game-play was phenomenal.

I love old games but I think the ps era to the beginning of 360 were all junk. They didn't have 3d down 100% but their were some exceptions.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
