Any old school players here?

I'm an old school collector and gamer--wondered if anyone here was into that too! I see posts for Fallout 3 and stuff and haha, I just don't even know what you're talkin' about.

Currently playing Mega Man 3, Castlevania Bloodlines, M.U.L.E., Castlevania II Belmont's Revenge and Maniac Mansion.

I have about 200 old school games, most of them NES and Genesis, though I dig the SNES and GBA a lot too.

Anyways, I am currently playing Half Life.

"Old school" has never died and has never ended...i still play the old games today...and i recently brought Megaman 9 and Contra 4. which are a great example of modern "old school" gaming.

haha old-school is different for everyone. I guess my cutoff is N64/PS1 but it's all great stuff. Love Half Life.

I don't have MM9 but I do have Contra 4, it's pretty cool. I love that you can unlock the NES classics (well, the good ones anyway)

I still have every system I've ever owned, myself. Don't play the older ones too much anymore, mostly because I just don't have room to do anything but keep them packed away.

...No, you don't.

I would say retro, for now, ends with the SNES/Sega era.

Yes, that was a great game. It would be nice if it was ported to the Nintendo DS.

Back at home, I still have my SNES, Sega Genesis, Gameboy, and Gameboy color somewhere in my closet with a few games.

I don't ever throw away my gaming systems.

Old school gamer here. I started video gaming since the atari 2600 when i was a kid, like at 6 or 7 yrs old, even though it came out the year i was born..

Current old school games that i play now?, um too many to mention. I don't play 'em everyday but i turn 'em on every once whenever i feel nostalgic.

My friend downloaded and burned onto my PC hard drive like every NES and SNES game there ever was, including each games version, for me. And i also got like 50 N64 games, but that's it. I use regular control pads too. The logitech ones, meaning. They look like ps2 or 3 controllers.

But the games i always seem to play alot are:

Super mario bros., 2,3 World, 64
Contra
Double Dragon 1,2
Turok
mega man 2
Act Raiser 1 and 2, (this one especially, and love the music in it too)
Battletoads
and
Street Fighter II: Championship Edition (Sagat all the way)


Fun stuff especially while playing it on a sony bravia plasma in dolby surround sound. But then after about an hour i'd eagerly go back to the future and pop in a game like "Crysis"..

Ofcourse I am also playing Fallout 3 and Fable 2.

Very fun game, just wish it had a save system. I need to find myself a new copy of that... stupidly sold it when I was younger.

I'm an old school player. I not only like to play old school fighting games from the 90s, but I also still play some NES games. Luckily, I got some of those games downloaded to play on my Wii, as I miss playing them back when I had my NES and SNES systems.

I play games like:

Street Fighter 2 (all versions)
Mortal Kombat 1,2,3
World Heroes (got the collection. Ha!)
Super Mario 1, 3,
Super Mario World
Super Mario RPG
Mario Kart 64
Mega Man
Zelda
Donkey Kong Country
Sonic
Final Fight
Streets of Rage

I even still got my N64 and Dreamcast.

If Retro is for the Snes/Sega Era and further back

Just wondering, If you play the old games on the compilations (Capcom Classics Collections, Midway Arcade Treasures etc) for the PS2 and whatever else that has them are they still Retro ?
