Hate being late to the party but I have been away a long while.

What is great about retro-gaming is dropping your coins in the slot, or plopping on the couch, and zoning out. Maybe it was just for 5 or 10 minutes. Maybe you played for hours on end.

But you lived in a virtual world of exploding pixels and dying a thousand deaths to reach your objective. Which was to complete the game and start all over again for the fun of it - or better score.

These days I have less time and less life to spend on retro gaming as I already neglect my Xbox 360. Retro gaming is not something I really do these days because I want to experience some of the new stuff.

Well, that and World of Tanks has taken over my gaming life.

Are you kidding? Some of those retro games are some of the best games, like Sonic The Hedgehog.

Age doesn't matter for a good game. A good game will always be good.

I still play Xbox 360 because it's full of good games. I still play Unreal Tournament on PC. Probably most video games I play are kinda old.

Just like a good movie never gets old, neither does a good video game.
