Old School (Pong to Donkey Kong Country)
New School (Super Mario 64 to the Present)
So which era of video gaming do you love more?
I'm going vote Old School. Something about 8 Bit and 16 Bit games makes me go bonkers!

EXPERIENCE MORE.... Arcade-quality graphics, awesome sound, "turbo-charged" game play, exciting TurboChip games... It's the incredible Turbo Genesis 64 Entertainment SuperSystem Experience. There's more fun, more challenge, and more excitment ready for you today!

Most of my favorite games are the latter, so "new school".
I had fun once and it was awful.

Tough, Tough, TOUGH question. I absolutely love playing the classics but with today's technology making gameplay so realistic I really don't know...I'm gonna have to go with both =)

Remember the balance between ancient (art, magic, traditions) and new (science, technology, evolution) the Chozo lore talks about in Metroid Prime 3. I think that applies to everything, including this existencial dilema I used to trouble with, now I enjoy the same playing say Super Mario Galaxy than the first Space Invaders. But if I had to chose only one it would be Old School (Pong to Donkey Kong Country), since without this one the next would never have existed (At least not as it is now)

I'm amazed at how so many primitive games like "Adventure" and "Maze Craze" can still leave me spellbound!

New School barely wins due to the fact that everything changes for the better and I mean EVERYTHING!
Just for you.

I don't think everything changes for the better! The Star Wars Trilogy is waaaaaaaaay better than the more "advanced" Prequel Trilogy. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was in devolpment for 19 years and it could't compare to the first 3 movies that were all made and released in less than a single decade!!!!!!

I like them both if the N64 and PS era is considered new-school.

Indie Retro Revival School. If that's not an option, Old School.
Come on, friends,
To the bear arcades again.

Old school of coarse, but I think N64 is old enough for old school.

I think Super Mario 64 was the start of the current "modern" peroid of gaming with more of an emphasis on 3D lifelike gaming!

Yep, Super Mario 64 is totally lifelike.

Adam always has a snappy comeback! I suppose hacksacking keeps your mind sharp. So when would you roughly say the Indie Retro Revival School movement started?
