Have you ever noticed that while newer video games definitely have superior graphics compared to the old days not many of them seem to have the same kind of replay value as the older games?
As most can attest to the video game industry has lost touch with itself ever the years and sacrificed game play for pretty graphics with a few exceptions.
I love my PS2 but I find that I always tend to return to the true classics such as Pac Man, Missile Command, Centipede, etc. on my Atari 5200, the Super Mario Bros series on my NES, and games like Chrono Trigger on the SNES.
Now it could very well be that I am just overly attached to these games simply because they are what I grew up with.. but thats for someone else to judge.
