"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 they can't know why they're 'better' 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.
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.
