How old can a console game be before you lose interest?

  1. No older than current gen. Tech's moved on, and me with it

  3. Two gens back (PS1). There are some classics and I don't mind the chunky pixels

  4. Three or four gens. 8 or 16 bit, a good game is still a good game.

  5. No limit. I'd happily spend a few hours pinging a dot across an oscilloscope scren

    Super Mario World and Super Metroid will forever be two of the greatest games ever made!

    Two Gens back, but no chunky pixels because of One X enhancements.

    I rarely play games on other than current gen systems. I might quickly revisit some classics for fun and nostalgia, but never really with the intent on finishing them.
    Though, with some consoles, it's hard not to play other than last gen games... *cough* Switch *cough*
    Currently, the oldest game I still actively play and plan to finish some day might be GTA5 on PS4 Still haven't finished story mode.
    If remakes count, then Shadow of the Colossus PS4 remake.

    Hmmm, I had to think about this one for a while. But there's 2 extremely old console games that I still enjoy playing from time to time. More for the nostalgia than anything else probably. But they were extremely good games for the time.

    River Raid and Pitfall on the Atari 2600. Nothing older on console that I'd like to play. :) And I still really enjoy them whenever nostalgia hits me and I break out the 2600 and load them up.

    Regards,
    SB

    I still play games like R-Type and others on a master system that I custom added a scart port to.

    I still replay Space Harrier II from the genesis from time to time. Really like that game especially the music in it.

    That gives me an idea. I'll try AV modding my megadrive/genesis as well.

    I still play occasionally on my Nes, Master System, Megadrive, SNES, PC-engine, Supergraphx, Neo-Geo, N64 and Dreamcast on a Sony Trinitron, all at 60hz (using modded consoles for the NES to SNES). Nothing feels as good as playing the real thing on a good old Trinitron.

    I usually play my favorite games and sometimes try a few others games borrowed from my collection.
