OMG--that PS3 remake looked awful. Well I guess that settles that. No remake of FF7 until Square makes a brand new Final Fantasy game that exceeds the quality of FF7. In other words, never.

It does look pretty ugly. And yes, never is correct.

I have to agree about FFVII. Doesn't really look that good. The gameplay is fun so i don't really care to much, however 90% of the time i got stuck in it (so far) was because i couldn't tell were to go because it was so hard to tell what was scenary or the right path.

Sword of Vermillion (MD/Genesis). Recently played through it again on PS2 Megadrive collection. Really enjoyed it back in the day. I found it so old fashioned and linear when i played thorugh it again, but still liked the music, and can't have been so bad as i did finish it again.

Super Marioland always had tiny graphics, which got rather blurred on a GB screen when scrolling, so was never the greatest looking game, but the gameplay and music are classic - i enjoy playing it just as much now as i did then, especially on the 3DS' screen.

Oh jeez. Final Fantasy VII. I had never played it before 2010, but I really wish they stuck to the pixel based graphics for that game. I turned on the game and nearly cried due to the unplayable graphics it had. I made it to the first boss fight, but on the escape I missed the dude I had to save and I died. I missed him because of the blurry graphics. I'm not one of those guys who play games for good graphics. In fact I hate those kind of people. This game was simply not able to be played anymore. The thing that made me the most sad was all the hype for it. I was so excited to play the 'best' Final Fantasy ever.

It was beautiful at the time.

The prerendered environments especially. But Resident Evil was king Cowabunga in that department! B-)

I don't doubt that it was to many gamers who only had console experience. I was a PC gamer at that time, and to me the 3D models looked pretty horrendous. The graphics were reminiscent of Alone in the Dark, which came out in 1992, 5 years prior. The pre-rendered back drops gave it some visual pizzazz, but I still didn't like it graphically even in '97.

Then again, my opinion is also tainted by the extreme on rails game play of the first couple of hours. This is something that bothers me about FF in general. I recently started FF III (VI) , and I found the on rails approach near the beginning equally annoying.

FFVII didn't have a great visual aesthetic. You can see plenty of primitive 3D PS1 games that did visuals the right way with the graphics they had to work with (like MGS1), but no, FFVII is definitely ugly and it always has been.

Ocarina of Time. What a horrid mess of a game - I can't believe people go on about it so much.

That game is amazing! You probably just don't like Zelda games. It's not that the game has aged terribly, it's just that you dislike that type of game.

For me, I can't really think of games that aged terribly, as I generally stick with Nintendo, and those games always seem to make me smile. Seriously, I can turn on my NES and plug in ANY of my Nintendo-made games, and I'll thoroughly enjoy it. I guess if I were to really pick a game that has aged terribly, it would have to be all of the sports games.

Ocarina of Time is still a great game, but it's direct successor and just about every other title after that fixed a few errors, polished the series mechanics up and as a whole looked and played better.

My choices:

Super Mario Land
Metroid (Zero Mission took it, fixed just about every problem, and added enough new to make it equivalent to pissing on your NES. Okay not really, but it's aged terribly)
Goldeneye 64 (Was innovative at the time, feels dull and clunky now.)
Excitebike
And like a few others, any licensed games I played and enjoyed as a kid.

This is a signature.
