Back In My Day...

While I am on a video game kick. I was wondering last night if we are going to talk about old video games like our parents talk about the Beatles. Will we be telling our children that all their games are just based on Doom or Final Fantasy, and they should go back and play the originals because they are totally better? What will be the classic rock radio equivalent for video games? Also, what games should be in the canon?

  3. I have been thinking about this, and Mario64 might be my favorite video game. I can probably still play that game for hours, hell just flying around the first level.

  5. Oh, I'm listening. I'm waiting for the price of Dr. Mario on the GBA to come down. I need to practice up for the next time I'm home.

    And I'm with you on the Mario 64 thing. Ever get into Mario Sunshine on the Cube?

  6. I didn't play a lot of Mario Sunshine, it seemed like Mario64 but got too hard too quickly for my taste.
