..your ass is really going to appreciate this game. If you spent hours playing Who Framed Roger Rabbit you know what I am talking about. I used to be bound to 8 bit graphics. The only multiplayer we had had an extra 2 to 4 controllers. Anyone could glitch as long as you bought a game genie . And if you lost a save it was your own fault for not writing the code down correctly. Maybe it's just me but this game is doing just fine.

I grew up playing the mega drive so I know where you're coming from. This game has got its issues but I do appreciate it. I actually love it.

old nintendo was better. sure the games look better now but youre still driving here, pick up thing and drive it back. 

 

now if you ever played the original metal gear or ghosts and goblins you know what a real challenge is. one mistake and you start over from square one.

 

also if you flip over an old nintendo there is a small compartment where you were supposed to link your system to the internet for online play. only the internet wasnt ready for that and it was never finished.

Yeah you make a really good point. I remind myself of that when I get pissed off sometimes. Not bashing on the kids as that makes me realize im getting old. but those games you really had to use your imagination, and could still play the same games every day for hours.

I did grow up playing NES and its crazy how now I complain about maybe a freeze or two a night when back then I used to have to blow on the cartridge and in the system like five times before the game would even start. Then I spent days playing dragons quest and the stupid cartridge erased my save game after days of work

Me and my brothers spent all weekend playing the flintstones. Sunday night our mother got mad that the machine was on all weekend so she hit the power button. On the finally boss stage. After an hour spent learning the pattern. We never made it back. We still don't celebrate mothers day anymore..

Grew up in the same generation as OP. 17/02/87 (yeah, that's right America, lol)

 

Disagree that we should just "like what we are given" because of the fact that we lived through the evolution of gaming. If anything, we should be the ones expecting the most out of games nowadays, because we beat Mario 1 before memory cards were even a thing.

 

I remember Pong.
I remember Pacman.
I remember Duck Hunt.

I remember Super Mario Bros.

I remember Sonic The Hedgehog.

I remember Quake.

I remember Half Life.

I remember Twisted Metal.

I remember Metal Gear Solid.

I remember Syphon Filter.

I remember Spyro.

I remember Vice City.

I remember Goldeneye.

I remember Timesplitters.

I remember Halo.

I remember Call of Duty.

I remember Medal of Honour.

I remember Deus Ex.

 

I still disagree with the OP's sentiment.

Back in the old days, if you wanted an open world game set in a city with a police force, you had to make do with this:

it's cool you do. I know we have come a long way with gaming. But I remember where we have come from. I don't get bent out of shape about anything in this game. It's all I ever wanted. But I know my post isn't a fact it's an opinion .

Don't get me wrong, mate. I'm not saying I don't appreciate how far we've come, or what this game is. I'm just saying that I don't feel the fact we've come that far is an excuse for half-assing things, which is how it feels R* are acting at the moment.

 

PS: The only "Shark Cards" back then were like GameGenies, remember GameShark cards!? Thanks for the thread, OP, I got nostalgic as f*ck over this lol.

These games are actually the first two I ever remember playing with my dad way back when. Atari, if I remember rightly?

So why should I appreciate this game out of the many generations before? Rockstar's biggest gaming contribution is fleshing out the Open World genre with GTA III. GTA V doesn't compare relevant to its time.

The first one is just pong. I think there were a few companies making the consoles, and pong was the only game on them.

 

The more advanced games had "hockey," which had 2 "paddles" for each player!

 

The second one is Combat on an Atari 2600. You could actually glitch through a wall and teleport behind the other player.

The system was $200 bucks when they came out. When my Dad finally forked over the cash for one, they were around $100 and came with 2 games.

 

Oh yeah: the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn't have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

The first game I ever played was I believe super mario brothers. I believe Contra was the first game I ever beat. Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, select, start.

oh the days of my childhood

turning on the vic 20 and putting the tape in to load the games

then having to type "load" to start

to be honest elite is still equal if not better that most of the games out there today

don't think i'll ever see one game last seven years again

Me too, still got it.

I remember playing Intellevision games thinking "man, if could get out of the car and shoot stuff that would be soo cool"

There is so much depth and openness to this game it's amazing. It is the best game I have ever played

I think Excite-a-bike and North & South were me two favourite on the NES. You could build your own tracks on excite-a-bike and North a South was a kind of war game based in the US civil war. Good times
