Do you like vintage or modern video games?
Video Games aren’t what they used to be. I’m old enough to remember playing Atari at my cousins house, and I had an original NES. Oh those were the glorious days Super Mario and Duck Hunt. The hours of play to try and get to level 8 was so much different back then. There was no saving just play, play, play, and hopefully have siblings or friends to help you get to the end. I don’t have a working NES, but I do still have a SNES and a Sega Genesis. I’ve been playing some SNES lately and a couple of the games that I used to play a lot now seem impossible especially compared to some of the modern games to beat.
Mortal Kombat is one of those games you just have to play till the end. I tried playing it not long ago and It was very difficult to win. I was trying to figure out what I had once known. After several tries I got one win and tossed in the towel on that one for now. Next game I have been trying to beat and it’s kicking my ass is NBA Jam, I used to play this a lot in my younger days, now I can’t win one game. Those pesky little CPU players keep stealing the ball. Zelda was kind of a pioneer even at the NES level. You were able to save your progress and play over several days weeks or months to beat the game.
Some other classic SNES games I love are Tetris, Madden, and MLB 1994. The modern WWII and Switch games are fun. Mario has some great games that are challenging and fun to play. WII sports was a big hit being able to use real actions to hit a ball with a bat or surf a wave, but I think the novelty wore off on that one. Mario Kart is fun and Zelda Breath of the Wild is fun, but I don’t get much time these days to play video games. When I do play its normally the SNES I go to, but do play Mario Kart, Super Mario, and Smash Brothers with the kids on the Switch. So I like the new games and I like the old games, just depends on the day. What are you guys in to? Sound off and let us know AFTER THE JUMP!
