It's weird how some games age tremendously well, where others... don't. Let's talk about both types!
This is inspired by me buying and playing Metroid Prime for the third time and still being utterly amazed at how good it is. It's also inspired by that one time I tried to replay Goldeneye and it sort of sucked.
Here's a list of games that I think have aged tremendously well.
— Metroid Prime — Street Fighter II — Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past — Super Metroid — Rainbow Islands
Here are some games that were once awesome and now... aren't so awesome.
— Goldeneye — Tomb Raider — Starfox — Banjo Kazooie — Killer Instinct
That's just the way I see it. If I had to pick a trend I'd say that games dependent of 'technology' tend to age worse than games that are great examples of design, like Super Metroid or A Link to the Past.
Am I wrong? What games do you think have aged well/terribly.
