I am neutral I love how games have evolved but at the same time I miss how the 8 bit era was. Beat a game in 2 hours and you kept playing it. Nowadays if a game is not 10 hours or more people look at is at a disappointment. I still enjoy classics like Bionic Commando,Streets of Rage,Sonic the Hedgehog,Mario Brothers 3 and Super Mario World. Also I enjoy newer games like Mario Galaxy, Madworld,Okami,Tales of Symphonia,Final Fantasy 10,Halo 2 etc. etc. With the help of the VC and my Genesis I am still playing several hours a month of classic retro games. But with my newer consoles from the last decade I spend more time on them. But I cannot shake the great memories of Pac Man and Frogger. Next month been gaming 23 years since the age of 4.

Indie Retro Revival School. If that's not an option, Old School.

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?

Oh, I have no idea, but if we're going by your calendar, it would mean any retro-style game made ASM64 (the year of our lord, Super Mario). When 3D came along, it felt like developers forgot everything they'd ever done and started learning design from scratch. But those who have built on NES- and SNES-era ideas have made some fantastic games even better than their predecessors. These games don't get popular attention because apparently progress means forgetting everything that's been done before, not improving upon it.

Come on, friends,
To the bear arcades again.

Old-School. Mario, Mega Man, Contra, and Castlevania sealed it for me.

Interesting perspective!

BTW, If you haven't already played "Ultimate Arcade Games" for the GBA track it down now! It rocks.

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!
