The same thing that's happened to movies ha happened to video games. The quality of graphics has certainly increased, but the quality of story hasn't gotten any better. There are gems every once in a blue moon, but for the most part, they've kinda gone down hill. That's why so many people love the oldies. They're all well made. I'd much rather play older games over some of the new ones.

If anything, the quality of storyline has gotten worse.

Just look at Final Fantasy XIII. It's story is, it pains me to say, rather terrible. It's gameplay is also horrid.

The only newer games I like are the Assassin's Creed games, because they look good, the story is amazing, the puzzles are addictive and gameplay is fun. They're not perfect by any means though. There are flaws in controls etc, but they're the most enjoyable newer games I've played.

By comparison, nearly every game I played before 2008 I really enjoyed. Not only that, but even if I didn't like it I could recognise that it was still made well. This can't be said for newer games a lot of the time.

I never really was a big fan of the Final Fantasy series. The storyline on some games are really good though. For example, Black Ops' story wasn't the usual CoD storyline but it was really good and kept me hooked.

among the older games System Shock 2 and Project IGI come to mind. simple in terms of gfx and yet so very challenging.

Which games do you think are better? Older games, or newer ones? when I say old games I mean games from before the release of 3rd gen consoles (PS3, XBOX 360)

?

The PS3 360 and Wii are seventh generation consoles.

My favorite consoles were the gamecube and N64, and the majority of my favorite games are on those two consoles... and I still play them more than my 360/PS3... so I guess I like older games better.

Given that the industry is over twenty years old, recycling is going to happen. Especially since developers now share a lot of influences.

Also, with RPGs, they should take about a hundred hours to complete. A good RPG will easily keep you playing that long. Fable II, which was my first Next-gen RPG, was awfully disappointing in terms of game length and storyline.

@Rise: You consider PS3, 360 and Wii to be 3rd gen? Seriously? *shakes head*

Same here. I love playing games such as command and conquer: red alert, Tom & Jerry, Crash Team Racing and Resident Evil 3 on my Playstation 1. And I still enjoy playing both solo and with friends on the Nintendo 64. Mario Party, Goldeneye, Super smash bros....oh it's endless.

i remember when one game lasted me a month. took me hour after hour just to clear one level/mission...especially RPGs. now most games last a few hours at best...rarely does a game come along that lasts u longer and has plenty of replayability.
