Back in the day when it was about the Bit war and not the gen/graphics war.

Yeah, bit and graphic can be the same, but still.

Consoles were better before they could go online, thats for sure.

1:- Software companies couldn't shove out a bugfest game and 'patch' it later
2:- You didn't have a lame 'friends' list full of people you've never seen or spoken to.
3:- Loading times were much better

When no one complained about replay ability. Or achievements. When game over meant game over.

Hell no. I can't count the number of times somebody bought me a Sega Genesis game because they didn't understand it wouldn't work in my Super Nintendo. And I just had to smile and say thank you because they tried.

I'll buy the damn games, thankyouverymuch.

Nah. It's not as bad as people say these days. Really, it isn't. Sure, there's more crap now, but there was a lot of crap back then too. You guys probably just never knew about it.

I will say two things, though. The focus on online did ruin it somewhat for me. And I also hate the focus on shiny graphics and realism these days. What's the point of being realistic? I can just go out if I want that.
