How often do you go back to games of yore?

Do you find yourself playing more and more games that are released now, or picking up less games and retro gaming more often?

I'm currently playing only current games, but I can always fall back on older games if I choose to.

I play mostly new games, but when I beat or get bored of those I often go back to older games. For example, I started a new character on KOTOR yesterday because I want to take a break from Halo: Reach and have beat the rest of my RPGs.

I almost never go back to older games. I don't have the time or the patience to go back to games I beat years ago when I have new ones to beat.

Pretty much this. While I am trying to beat about 4 games in the next few weeks, I am itching to play some PS2 and N64 games.

Lately, it's been all modern, but I've got a PS2, Genesis, TG-16, 2600, and Dreamcast at the ready along with other systems just a plug-in away!

What I like to do is to play several short under 10 hour games, then get into a 50+ rpg. I just replayed Final Fantasy 9 on my PS1 and finished it at 60 hours. That game is extremely beautiful for a 2 gen old game.

I've got mostly all of the past systems (NES, SNES, GENESIS, PS1/2, N64, etc.), and tons of games on each. While I tend to stick to the modern stuff on the 360, I still find myself dusting off one of the old consoles and popping in a classic every now and then.

What can you possible spend more time playing new?
Most new games this gen suck quite a bit actually.
