That's not poor aging, that's just seasonal rot. Now if you had said Mario Party 1 on the other hand, that's more on topic.
On a side-note: Island Tour could of been worse, it could of been Advance.

Just some random loser who loves a variety of things.

A severe case of nostalgia.

Most games have aged poorly. The ones surprised or are exempting later sequels of said franchises are the nostalgic ones. Also:

You have a good list, except for one game: Super Metroid. I've agreed with every game on the thread, but this is one of my favorite games ever, despite only playing it last year for the first time. The grapple beam was annoying, along with the framerate drops caused by power bombs, but those are completely overshadowed by the incredibility of this game. Every place is crafted expertly and feels natural. The controls are great (except for the grapple beam) and the graphics have aged nicely. What else is not to like?

Any game with a password save system. I simply cannot play a game where you have to put in a 8-character code (or 24 in the case of Metroid) every time you boot up the game.

Also, any game without a save system period. People simply don't have time to play through the entirely of Mario 3 in one sitting these days.

I know stuff like the Virtual Console alleviate these problems, but if you are playing on the original hardware this is a huge problem.

Mario Party DS was good. I was disappointed to see Island Tour was so bad.

Starfox on the SNES is unplayable, IMO.

Pretty much all n64 games except ones that had different graphic/art style like Paper Mario. Games that go for artsy styles tend to look better with age such as earthbound, wind waker, and okami.

@Kaze_Memaryu Did... Did you just put SUPER METROID on that list?!?! WHAT!? I'm not even a big Metroid fan, but when I played it (About a year ago) I had to admit that it's a masterpiece. The atmosphere, gameplay, story, (Which had been spoiled for mr, but still) everything in that game is close to perfection!

I like makin' games!
Future Pinball games!
Petit Computer games!!
and SmileBASIC games! (Whenever that releases...)

Most but not all of the N64/PSX era. Graphically they are ugly and depressing and relied in too many CGI clips.

First party Nintendo games age like fine wine. I still love Octopus and fire which were my First Nintendo games in the early eighties. Still love my Atari 2600 too.
The games which I feel age worst are sports games.

The trick to enjoying older games is to appreciate them for that they are. One would not expect an NES game to look like a Gamecube game ETC.
Of course it doesn't hurt if you were there at the time when they were the latest either. But I can think of awesome games from any mainstream console that I would be happy to play today.

Hard to believe Super Metroid's on a list, though I'm going to guess it's graphic-related compared to Zero Mission and Metroid Fusion. I would argue that Super Metroid is more varied in its display of environments in comparison to both of those games though.

If any Metroid game has aged though, it'd be Metroid II: lack of map, one-beam system and monochrome scheme. How Super Metroid aged poorly while Metroid II didn't is a head-scratcher.

Metroid II aged WAY better than the original Metroid.

Yeah, guitars are cool.
