I'm a fan of the new and the old, I like almost any game, but Christmas season is my time to have money, about $120 of more. Should I buy older games for systems like the SNES, N64, Genesis, PSOne, and the general run of the mill games on those systems. Or Should I buy games for the Wii or DS. Games like LKS or The Conduit. What do you think I should do.

A lot of the older games you can find dirt cheap and often still have enough money left over to buy a new one. I still buy games for my GBA,Gamecube,PS2 and 64.

@supermarioman - If you wanted to buy a classic that you'll barely find in stores nowadays, eBay is a good way to order the classics.

It all comes down to tastes, really. I'd say old, but that's because they're cheaper, and better IMO. But again, it depends on what you're interested in.

Should I buy something like Super Mario RPG for $50 or Chrono Trigger for $60?

How about Super Mario RPG for $8. It's on VC. And Chrono Trigger is on DS for less than $50...

Of course, I would rather have the cartridges for SNES.

You could. But, you could try an RPG like Arcana and Breath of Fire as well. But, it's all up to you.

An apple should taste nicer than a banana. Bon appetit.

You should buy both old and new games. Or, you can just buy a bunch of VC and WiiWare games and a few retail Wii games. It's really your decision.
