It's almost like you're treating the past of video games like a religion, that you should pay it due respects.

Super Mario Bros. 3 doesn't give a shit if you never play it again.

Metroid 1 wouldn't care if your foot got ran over by a bus this morning.

Bad Dudes doesn't give one crap if you play it, don't play it, own it, step on it, trade it for a bump of crank, melt it down to make your mother a sex toy, or eat it

It's amazing how far we have come with our technology and technological needs, so far to the point we barely even have time for using "pen & paper" anymore.

It seems almost as if people have given all hope on our past (except for us here of course and a few others lurking about), rejecting it and always pursuing the more "advanced" future.

Although, I do have to be fair... I admit that today's newer games are really "amazing" in their own way; but no matter how much I enjoy games like:

-Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
-Modern Warfare 3
-Resident Evil 6
-Pokemon: Black & White

Plus many other games that I actually haven't played yet (I have only played maybe 4 games of today's generation, but I have managed to see others play these games).

With all due respect, and I know this seems a bit "harsh" as well as "narrow-minded"; but if it wasn't for our past, today's modern gaming wouldn't even exist.

In my utmost humble opinion, I believe it is only fair to pay our respects and give a few plays in return to our past on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.

How about the rest of you...? Which is better in your opinion, or are they "technically" equal?

[Whether or not you agree that the retro generation is better than the modern generation doesn't matter, I still firmly believe that both generations should be experienced and respected nonetheless]
