I don't personally find modern gaming to be better than games in the past, but certain aspects are better with modern gaming, like graphics (polygon count and resolution), scale of the game, and online gaming.

You can't just lump all games together like that. There's plenty of retro games that suffer from everything you just whined about.

That is a horribly worded sentence, especially considering it is a topic thread title.

The PS2 era was also the pentacle of the Second Video Game Age for me, so "modern" gaming? Meh.

So gen 1 and 2 are what, antique gaming?


If you want to go by the Generally Accepted Video Game Principles...as discussed on Wikipedia in exhaustive detail...

Gen 1 - Late 60's to mid 70's. First arcade games such as Spacewar and home systems like Pong.

Gen 2 - 1977 - 1983. Atari. Intellivision. Colecovision. Odyssey 2. Birth of the home console in earnest. Coin Ops in arcades at the peak of their popularity.

The End - 1984.

Gen 3 - The beginning of the Second Age due to the NES. And to a lesser degree the initial Sega system.

Gen 4 - 1989. SNES, Sega Genesis, TurboG 16, Neo Geo.

Gen 5 - 1994. N64, PS1, Sega Saturn

Gen 6 - 2000. Gamecube, PS2, Xbox (I don't count the Dreamcast in 1999.)

Gen 7 - 2005. Wii, PS3, Xbox 360

Gen 8 - 2012. Wii U, PS4, Xbox One

Exact dates are somewhat subjective, so if you disagree with my timeline, it's all good.

:D

other than 1 or 2 series i've never felt the need to go back further than the ps2/xbox days, and other than exclusives i can get all those on the pc now

its a matter of moving forward and leaving the past where it belongs, aside from ocarina of time, and a couple other titles i could easily say, if i never had the oppertunity to play the N64 ever, i would have no regrets.

Modern gaming is better imo because alot of games can tell a great story. Red Dead Redemption is the reason why modern gaming is better.

I am a sucker for graphics. The current generation will always be my favorite.
