Peppy_Hare commented on Review: Axelay (Wii U eShop / Super Nintendo):

"you might be surprised to discover that your skills perhaps haven't aged as well as the title itself. In the Nintendo Life office we've had to consume a large amount of humble pie after realising that we don't have the same reactions that we did during the early '90"
I bet much of that is due to the display lag modern flatscreens have. When you played the original, it was on a CRT without the lag. I've noticed I can play these old twitch-type games better on a CRT television.

"There really is nothing like playing physical media the way it was intended. Sure anyone can find roms of old games on the internet and play them on the computer, but it’s just not the same. There’s something special about playing on an old CRT TV, blowing on a cart to get it to work and beating a game with authentic controller in hand."
Totally agree, especially about the CRT thing.

That was an awesome article that demonstrates how someone younger can also appreciate the classics. However, having been around since the mid-70's I can, I believe, somewhat objectively, say that those older games truly provide better experiences than new games. SORRY but it's true.

The original Xbox could output in 720 (the native resolution of most WiiU games) and that system came out in 2001. I believe Nintendo should have better fore site (or does have better foresite and that this is just a nice-sounding story they've fabricated).
