Yeah, and I stand behind I wrote. I never said they can't know why they're 'better' but that they cant know how much good they were when they released compared to generation/s later, espacily because we talking about 1rst generation of 3rd party games that later aged poorly. Also, I never said that all who play them back then think that those are best TR games.

I think you read too far into things.

And, I'm not telling you not to stand behind what you wrote. I just disagree with it.

You basically arguing about things I didn't said, its totally different thing if you simply say that you dont agree with me.

I quoted your words, my friend. I simply disagreed with them. I didn't put words in your mouth and this really isn't that big of a deal.



                                                                                                                                                           

It is hard to choose as I love the first one when I saw, but didn't had the means to play all 3 at the time, but played their version on PS3. Same for the second time. On the current version I'm playing closer to the release and liking, so I guess it would be the choice.

Yes you did, and than you keep bringing some staffs discussions like I wrote them. Its not big deal, but like you wrote, we are arguing.

"Your initial implication was that people who haven't played the earlier games can't know why they're 'better'. I'm saying many of us have played those games and still prefer what we're calling the second series."
"Those who did play them don't all agree with what you're saying"


And like I wrote, I never said something like that or that was my point, but that they cant know how much good they were when they released compared to generation/s later, espacily because we talking about 1rst generation of 3rd party games that later aged poorly. Also, I never said that all who play them back then think that those are best TR games and that those people cant prefer other games from series. So you keep arguing about thing I didn't write or that was my point.

Easily the 3rd series. I like everything about it more than the earlier series, the character design, the gameplay, etc.

Although this doesn't confirm that I said anything that you didn't, I see where the main problem lies. So let's work with it.

What is it that the few who said they didn't play the originals missed? What made them so good that the second (or third) series didn't do as good or better?

Simple, TR 1/2/3 were much better games for its time than laters TR games were for its time. Things like exploration, platforming, atmosphere, puzzles, level design, huge focus of game was on exploration and finding right path...all that was all much better in original games. But offcourse with badly aged controls and movement, camera, graphics...those games aged poorly, but same thing could be said for huge majority of game from 5. generation.

Cool. And, that's where I disagree. I found the exploration to be more entertaining in the second series. The atmosphere was stronger in the original series, but the second one had refined gameplay and I preferred the puzzles.
