Most games don't age well, those that do are the exception... 2D Platformers in particular are the genre that ages that best, sports games normally age the worst (except for CM01/02).....

In terms of 2d platformers I gave Donkey Kong Country a whirl not too long ago and it has lost so much because of the dated graphics, if it was a sprite game it'd be so much more playable today.

The orginal Zelda hasn't held up well but I didn't play at the time of it's release, Turok & Goldeneye are horrible today with so many advances in modern FPS, and due to the blocky graphics at the time Tomb Raider & Burning Rangers.

Hmm... it could be a lot worse, maybe.

Mario Kart 64 is a nightmare, that did not age well at all, so slippery and horrible. Same with Mario Kart Super Circuit, yikes. Another that pops into my head is Superman 64, but to be fair that wasn't a great game even when it released. Ice Climbers on the NES is pretty dreadful too, dam them controls...

Most NES games.
Most N64 games.

Personally, Super Mario Kart isn't what I consider a true classic, mainly because it hasn't aged quite well. Don't get me wrong, it is a good game back then and is the one who started the whole franchise, but the technical limitations made it much more obnoxiously difficult than most of the more recent Mario Kart games.
This is especially apparent on 100cc and 150cc Grand Prix's AI, as they tend to spam character specific items as many times as they need, jumps over obstacles randomly and pass through Thwomps. Seriously, what the developers were thinking?! This has to be the worst offender of Mario Kart AI rubberbanding!
What makes me end up on off-road more often than I do on any other Mario Karts is the fact that aren't enough sprites to clearly help you telling where you're exactly heading, as well of the Mode 7 tracks being too small and the weird kart handling occurs even on the lightest characters. The same can be said about Mario Kart: Super Circuit, though some of the aforementioned issues are addressed.

Agreed. Ocarina of Time also has some nasty aging problems. Mostly in it's choppy combat and horrendous sound quality.

I don't have any problems with the Gamecube bonus disk version of Ocarina of Time or Master Quest but I play it on a CRT (With RGB Scart).

I certainly still like it more than Windwaker which I never liked in the first place.

I'd say almost the entire library of N64 games... at the time it was amazing, I know... but now... 64-bit polygonal graphics are very hard on my eyes, having since gotten used to graphics with much higher polygon counts... pixelart somehow remains fine to look at, though. I prefer 8-bit or 16-bit pixelart graphics over 64-bit 3D...

Most games age poorly.

My SD Card with the game on it is just as physical as your cartridge with the game on it.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.

Anything that favoured realism over pixel art looks pretty bad now. Mortal Kombat and Donkey Kong Country used to look 'better' than Street Fighter 2 and Super Mario World but not if you compare them now. Majora's Mask is pretty horrible to play but the less detailed N64 games still look ok to me. The Wii U's emulation of SNES and NES games makes them look pretty nice with sharp pixels. Stunt Race FX has aged the worst of all my SNES collection

I'll also go with first gen. Pokemon. It's like watching a turn knob black and white television when there is a led smart tv in the next room.

A dying animal struggles, thrashes and howls in protest as its life torn from it. To see this in action, watch Animal Planet. The same thing happens when a video game is or isn't released. To see this in action, stay here.
