Btw, don't call it next gen tc, it's the current gen. Unless if you mean to say we're chasing after the 9th gen of consoles.


That's actually not far off from the truth. Probably by January.

Yes, TC, we DO play older games.

In fact, some people actually play older games more than newer ones. For me, the average is 4 old games for every 1 new game.

Why do people claim there's no generations of PC gaming when they know damn well how hard it can be get some old games running again, exactly because they were designed for a different generation of computers?

PC gamers are probably more inclined to play older games than console gamers. PC games age less severely since resolution, if nothing else, can be tuned up, and mods often keep games updated well beyond their natural life. Also, near universal backwards compatability. Really old stuff might require some setup but is usually possible to run.

If you count emulation, then PC gamers obviously have the biggest retro library around, and a LOT of us like it.

No. PC gamers never play old games. We only play games released within the past week or so.


correction. PC gamers never play old games. We only play games that are yet to be released.

Right so we are on... third gen?

9x ran all DOS games pretty easily, you might of had to turn on "Expanded memory" but that's it.
So the divide was when we changed to NT (And a bit more with XPsp2)
But then Vista and onward added compatibility for older permission unaware programs, so we went back to a 1.5 generation.
But then we dropped 16 bit support.

DOS ->NT ->64 bit

Well, its not hard to play old games on newer PCs if you know what you are doing. Heck, even though I have a very recent PC, I can play all my games.


Heck, considering the fact that Windows XP still plays most older Windows games, Dosbox plays all Dos games, and Windows 95 installed on a Dosbox setup runs most Win9x games that XP can't handle, one can play every PC game ever made on a newer PC without too much hassle.

Windows 7 + Windows XP + Dosbox + Windows 95 = ultimate PC with perfect backwards compatibility. ^^
