What a bunch of rubbish
Granted some games nowadays are amazing but many have amazing graphics but no gameplay.
I regularly play Sinclair Spectrum or C64 games as theres some classic games on those machines and also obviously it recaptures your youth.
Thats why people listen to music from the 80's etc , to many people it might sound rubbish but they have great memories of them etc.
Some console games nowadays are superb, others are overpriced pieces of crap with fancy graphics.
As you can tell from searching the net old-skool emulators and games are still huge. I'm sure in 10 years time you'll be playing the games you did 10 years ago whilst your kids play some new fangled latest game.
Each to their own
