I liked the older better.
New ones are still great fun to tho.
I miss older RPGs.
Where it didnt lead you by the hand and put you where you needed to go. Or have a compass to pin out exctaly where to go.
Also some older rpg had more complex dungeons. More levels in some dungeons too.
Less save points.
A lot of games have so many save possibilites it easy to restart just a few steps back.
Actually I find a lot of older RPGs didn't try very hard to care about how difficult the player would find their ridiculous and vauge clues. And the horrible Engrish didn't help.
