Comments

  • This might be an unpopular opinion, but these OG Xbox games are just a waste in the pile of Games with Gold. The gameplay and graphics are both from an older generation that just doesn’t work for me (this is an opinion not fact). Throwing the games on a 65inch display just looks murky and choppy.

    • I agree wholeheartedly – I take it further to retro gaming in general. The industry needs to focus time and resources on new IP, not remastering, remaking, re-releasing older content.

    • I couldn’t disagree more. I find the constant push towards “the new” in the videogame community actively harms people ability to enjoy games that don’t conform to modern mechanics unless you market yourself as a throwback title.

      I’ve recently dived into looking at the PS1 catalogue, and the relative cheapness compared to modern AAA and the diversity of countries that had major studios resulted in a far more broad range of genres and styles of games and we simply don’t have anymore.

      There are so many interesting mechanics and aesthetic choices that are just slipping under the rug because people are being trained to see anything that wasn’t released in the last half a decade as worthless.

      • Don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against retro gaming. My favourite game system is STILL the SNES and I have all the ‘classic’ consoles (yes even the PS Classic.. sorry).

        My gripe is specifically with the Games with Gold OG Xbox games. One or two seems OK in the long run, but they did 3 months with OG Games last year (all of them Star Wars) including the sequel to the game they’re now giving us a year later.

        Of course if they give us BLACK from OG Xbox next month, then I’ll just sing praises like a hypocrite, and as I said above, it’s an opinion only. I think there’s plenty of X360 titles they could delve into to still give us variety as opposed to another Star Wars title which was on original xbox’.. This is now the 4th..
