I do! I'm a big fan of the old Sierra-style point and click adventure games...I used to play those for hours when I was younger. I also really like a lot of the old super nintendo games, that was probably my favorite console system ever released. It just had so many fun and innovative games!


God I'm old. I played hero's quest: so you want to be a hero before it was remade with a point and click interface.

Heh, good old CGA chipsets ;)

My favourite to play on MAME is The Simpsons. There IS a PC version of the same game, but it'll never be as good.

Which one? You know MAME is free, right? You can play with your cursor keys if you don't have a PC controller.

I'm a vintage gamer who played Atari back in its glory days, but I can't understand why other people from that era get all excited about a bunch of blocky pixels and barely any sound and only maybe three stages of difficulty. Some really old games (Atari, Colecovision, Intellivision) are entertaining for maybe a few minutes but I can't see myself spending hours in front of the screen. Usually my mind starts to wander after the first minute or so. A lot of older action games like Sonic were awesome but often drove me crazy with frustration because they were so hard, like when I got to the Wing Fortress Zone in Sonic 2, and kept plummeting to my untimely death if my timing was off by a nanosecond. A lot of older games don't have continues or save points and I was lucky not to dissolve into tears if I finally got to the last level boss after about 3 grueling hours of game play only to run out of lives and have to start all over again! There are a lot of older games I do like, such as Bubble Bobble, Q*Bert, Mario, Pac-Man to name a few, but it annoys me when classic game fans trash all modern games.

You'll have to search for the games ("ROMs") on your own.

You're welcome :)

BTW, It is good to see younger gamers still interested in the games I played when I was a kid. (That was an old man statement, wasn't it? I feel like an old man now. :P)

Well I'm not really a "modern era gamer" as I was born and raised during the time of the older consoles, but I vastly prefer the games of the SNES and n64 to the games of now. So little originality and fun nowadays.

True. Although I would argue that neither came close to the NES in originality.

Nearly every genre or long-running series started on the NES.

I'd disagree, the majority of old NES games originated in the arcades.

Highly unlikely, but did anyone here have an MSX?

I don't mean to sound like a broken record, but I know a lot of people play NES/SNES/GENESIS/MEGADRIVE emus to play arcade conversions, when they could just play the actual arcade game instead.

I'd love to try that N64 emu for Sin and Punishment, but I doubt I'd be able to find a decent controller for it.
