Do you still play older games?

    A lot of times with the newer games and systems, people are less interested in older systems and games. Do you still play any older, or less advanced games? I still do occasionally, but not nearly as much as before. The technical limitations of older games seem to be a problem sometimes. What are your thoughts, do you still play older games?

    Yes I do.

    I guess it depends how old though...

    But I play my SNES and Playstation games a lot still.

    Most old game systems stopped working (Like my NES) :/, I play my n64 sometimes and I play some Ps1 games. Sucks that all my Pokemon GB games don't save anymore...All I have left is Silver and Yellow but they barely save and when they do it gets deleted..

    That happened to me a lot of times... It gets quite annoying after a while. It mainly tends to delete when I'm using Pokemon Stadium GB Tower though. Luckily now there is a backup of the save file, so your data is a lot less likely be deleted in the newer Pokemon games.

    Yep. I still play with the nintendo 64 while playing Super Mario 64.

    I think games like that should get more credit cause I play a majority of old games but I still play new ones as well.

    Killer Instinct

    Yes but I play it on my Wii. Here are Virtual Console game I have.
    1. Super Mario Bros. 3 (Nintendo Entertain System). One of the best NES games around. However it suffers from graphic inacurrcy keeping from number 1. Example is that Mario looks like he is wearing red and brown overall instead of a traditional red and blue overall.
    2. Super Street Fighter 2: The New Challenger (Super Nintendo Entertain System). This is one of my favriote for the SNES. But you won't believe this. I once was so scared of the cool intro I threw the cartige away. That haunted me for a long time. But with a Classic controller and one Wii Point card I have that game for the Virtual Console and when I play it it is so much fun. However I can't get the full experience yet since I don't have a second one yet. I plan to get it for Christmas.
    3. F-zero X (Nintendo 64). Before downloading this great game I never ever played a F-zero game! But I'm a sucker for lots of features so I dediced to download this. I had a great time. But I was starting to get fed up with just 6 character. Thanks to the manual I manage to get the full 1-player experience. I even manage to get my next six characters! Did you know that in this game you unlocked 6 character in a group? This game is wacky for me.
    4. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (Sega Genesis). Sonic most succesful adventures joined by Tails. You can play with Sonic alone, Tails alone, and Sonic joined by Tails. (Wished they gave the option to have Tails in lead and Sonic joining him.) Before trying this game out I never even play a Sonic game other then Mario and Sonic at the Olympic games which is not that good.
    I reccomed you get these games. However I got so much more games from the Virtual Console I want to get. Here are examples.
    1. Megaman (NES), Kirby Adventures (NES), Sonic the Hedgehog (Master System), Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (Genesis), Super Mario World (SNES), Donkey Kong Country (SNES), Super Mario 64 (N64)
    Here are some of the game I hope that arrives at the Virtual Console.
    1. Megaman 7 (SNES)
    2. Earthbound (SNES)
    3. Super Smash Bros. (N64)
    4. Sonic and Knuckles (Gen)
    5. Megaman 6 (NES)
    These are my most wanted. Megaman 7 is my number 1 most wanted. Thanks for letting me comment. And sorry for being so long.

    You might as well stop hoping because it's already in North America Virtual Console. It also has a nice touch-up!
