Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

I still have around 3 PS1s in my loft and PS2s, plus all the games I ever really wanted on the system, so won't be buying this. Nice for perhaps the younger generation of kids though. I am sure you can probably pick up an original job lot off ebay for less with some decent games. I guess the games ...

Re: Sony announces Playstation 1 Classic

Seems pointless when a PS3 can do it anyway. Also PS games have aged very badly and I'm not sure it'll enjoy the mainstream retro appeal of Nintendo and Atari's efforts.

Is it a Stephen King thing? Or just a similar name?

Re: Backwards Compatability

In a big fan of BC and my split of One /BC games is about 50/50. It's much better than trying to run Xbox games on a '360 but it will never be as good as having the original hardware. Unfortunately I just don't have the room for all 3 generations of Xbox so I have to take what I can get.

Re: The first games you completed.

OMG! Ye Ar Kung Fu on 464! Corner yourself and your opponent would be too close to actually hit you. Total exploit, obvs, so doesn't really count.

The first games you completed.

What are the first games you can remember completing? My first machine was a cpc464 but most of the games were too abstract, complicated or simply broken. I may have finished Ghostbusters but I really can't remember. The first games I can remember for sure were on the Master System and I think the v...

Re: games where the original was best

The only Outrun I really played prior to Coast 2 Coast was BattleOutrun on the Mastersystem. I wasn't a massive fan back then but I did finish the game on a few occasions.

I think the original Burnout wasn't bettered simply because the series moved away from the pure racer to "vehicular combat".

Re: What did you prefer: cassettes or 5¼" floppies?

My main memeoris of the cpc464 were the little rituals I felt necessary to make certain games load without crashing and the absolute revelation it was when I got a Master System and instant access carts!

Re: games where the original was best

Probably trolling but has the original GranTurismo ever been bettered? Do the sequels offer anything other than more of the same?

Re: What's Your Favorite Driving/Racing Game Ever?

Racing games have totally dropped off the radar for me. Can't stand the obsessive car worship of modern iterations of GT & Forza and the last arcadey racing game I tried, NfS Hot Pursuit, I just couldn't get into. I'd like to see some original Xbox game though; Forza, PGR2, Burnout 3, Outrun 2006 etc.

Re: games where the original was best

For me, Outrun Coast to Coast is really Sega at it's best. Bright, sunny games with breezy, arcade gameplay and great music. Proper "feel good" games that you can drop into when you're not feeling great about whatever and just let it take you away. I'd love to see it on XBone Backwards but I expect ...
