Games you like that have not aged well:

I still like Dungeon Siege II, but I'd have to agree; the engine it runs on is starting to show its age.
Sabrina, help! I'm stuck in The Forties and they haven't invented kitty litter yet!
I disagree about Jet Set Radio. Game is still a blast and fresh, though Future makes some of its mechanics seem primitive in comparison(pretty much the entire trick system). Still no other game like it.

Just awesome like that
I will say this about JSR (with my limited experience playing it), the Totally Radical xtreme skating aspect of it is very '90s/early 2000s. Still a blast, though, and, of course, dat music. Haven't played JSRF yet, but I've heard its soundtrack.

Hmm hows about Spider-Man? The one that came out in 2000. I have fond memories but I dread picking up a copy off ebay for fear that my dreams of nostalgia will be shattered.

I dunno, I played it well past its time and still had plenty of fun with the game. However, even that was years ago. I've still got my copy... maybe I'll give it a runthrough one of these days.

The first Deus Ex. I still think it's one of the best games of all time in terms of story and it has, in my opinion, the single best level design of any game ever. But the controls to activate augmentations are a bit clunky, the voices aren't very good, and the graphics and visuals certainly haven't aged well at all.

So I'd say that it hasn't aged well, but that it's still one of the best. Am I allowed to do that? I mean, you guys are talking about how a game hasn't aged well, but then someone else disagrees because they still think it's good. I think Deus Ex is still good amazing, even though it hasn't aged well.

Newtons Sleep. Good book. Also free, legal, and online.

I'm curious if Spider-Man 2 holds up well. I know it was among the first and most well-liked licensed sandbox-style games (as far as I can remember), but now that there've been 20000 other games in that vein, how does it compare?

[up] Speaking as someone that picked it up again giddily recently due to extremely fond memories as a kid teenager... Not as well as I'd hoped. Even webslinging lost a bit of its' luster. Still, it's by no mean unenjoyable now.

I like this game for the dialogue and characters, and I still do, but everything else abut the game hasn't aged well at all, especially the load times.

I spread my wings, fly away. The wind sweeps me off my feet, blowing me away yeah. Trees whispering to me.

I'm feeling free now.

[up][up]Interesting. The reason I ask is because I don't remember if I ever actually owned it, but I do remember playing it only once or twice at a friend's house around when it came out, I believe, and always wanted to give it a shot on my own.

I've about had it with this. Stop making these general threads with a stealth complaint twist. Bans will be handed out for further violations.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
