Vintage Video Gamers?

    OK, I was wondering if there's anyone else here who actully likes older games better, and/or collects older consoles and games.

    My mate just got a Sony Playstation One, and I have to admit, it's a lot of fun! We've been playing Oddworld, and I really like this. Also, I love the arcade games you can get for it, such as R-Type. We also have a PS2, but I don't like it as much, and how it seems to be the start of the era where there's all this babbling, breaking up the action in many games. Granted, I do love some games on it, to be sure.

    We also have a Nintendo and Super Nintendo; Pocky and Rocky is my favorite game on Super Nintendo, and on the earlier one, that version of TMNT is a classic.

    I have an Atari 2600 someplace, gotta dig that out.

    Next, I wanna look at an early Sega console...there's a store pretty close that buys, sells and trades consoles and games, and what I love, is a lot of them are only $5 to $10, so it's not too expensive. Some can be high...I noticed Pocky and Rocky was like $100, glad I saved that one :)

    Also, I'd like to build a MAME emulator, to play arcade games, that has the proper controllers: roller ball, joystick, that weighted knob that spins 360, very fast...without these, you just don't get the 'feel' of many old games. Will have to look more into making one, someday.

    So, any other vintage game enthusiasts out there? I'm just starting to get into this again, and tend to like quirky games that look colorful, best : )

    I have my SNES with a few games like Super Mario World, Donkey Kong (Pirate themed one I cant think of its full name) I enjoy a lot of the older games. Like FF3 (FF6) and several other classics. I still have my Sega Genesis somewhere with a few games. I still have a PS2. few my fav. games on that was Star Ocean Till the end of time, FFX/X-2 and many more. But now I mostly game on PC I have a WiiU, Xbone and PS4. But my PS4 right now is out of commission... :(

    Ahh! I loved that game! I never actually beat it yet. I'd always get near the end and start getting my arse kicked. Lol

    Also, did anyone play Little Ninja Brothers? For NES. Such an amazing game.

    My parents gave me their old NES console about a year ago and surprisingly it still works after being in our attic for years. I occasionally play some games on it but mostly Mario Bros. I can't remember what other games I've got.
    It's not like I collect it but I enjoy having such an old machine. :3

    NES was so awesome. I had one for literally my entire life. My brother got one from our grandparents when he was 5 for Christmas, and I was born the March right after lol. I remember I had this Fisher Price game

    That's so cool. I wasn't even close to being born when they made the NES. XD I can't even remember why I got their old console. I think they saw me play one of the New Mario Bros games and told me about how much better the old one was. So they wanted to prove it. And yeah it is a lot harder but plays extremely well.
    I really want the NES Classic mini so I'd be able to play more games since NES games aren't that cheap here. :I But all the minis are sold out.

  11. Yeah I mostly prefer retro games more than modern due to the way gaming has went.

    Some favorites:
    AVP2000 (wish 2 was digital, but love doing alien vs marines lan parties)

    Dungeon keeper (have more nostalgia with 2, but I still really enjoy the first, it seems to have less annoying missions, but more difficult missions which I like a lot)

    System shock (story, gameplay, atmosphere, and just everything is nearly perfect, and I like it a lot)

    I got a Sega Dreamcast from my brother a while back, its a pretty neat console and the few games i got for it are fun. That and a Gameboy color are about the oldest things i have right now.
