Well I've recently come to acquire an N64 (at last!), and I'd like to talk about it, so sure!

Congrats, man! I hope you enjoy it. What games did you get?

I tend to agree with amp on this one. I feel very strongly that we should pay more attention to older games -- especially because gaming is now in a decadent period -- but I worry that a new forum might be overkill.

I would suggest an official "retro" thread to scratch the itch.

In any event, thanks to richardhutnik for pushing this topic forward.


I don't think a new forum would be overkill. We could probably do without the politics one. It causes more trouble than it's worth.


The thing about retro gaming is that there is just as much to talk about as todays games. Re-releases and remakes are happening all the time. There's console fixing issues, old system mods, favorite games, lost gems, rediscovered classics, etc. There's just so much to talk about retro gaming that it really needs it's own forum. It would also help build the community up because those that want to talk about retro topics wouldn't have to go elsewhere to do so.

All good points. But the lack of a retro forum isn't keeping anyone from posting threads about retro games.

That's true. But retro threads can get lost just like any general topic. If a person is interested in Nintendo they can browse the Nintendo forum. But if someone is interested in retro gaming their only hope is the less than precise forum search tool. All I'm saying is that if it's easy for people to gather around retro games I believe it will be good for the community.

If you build it, they will come.

Just a handful of the classics (OoT, MM, Mario Party, Mario 64, Lylat Wars, Conker's Bad Fur Day). Pokemon Stadium and Goldeneye should be coming soon as well!



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

I agree that we shouldn't have a Political DIscussion thread but that's a whole different can of worms.

I say that if people start making more threads about retro gaming that people like us that are in this thread will show up.  Sure, it won't be as popular as the latest Sony vs MS thread, but that's how things are around here.
