ORIGINAL POST: First up, apologies that there was no Weekend Debate last week – circumstances conspired against me. Anyway, we’re back on track today.
So, your topic for discussion this week. Whenever we post about a re-release of an old title or a new game that’s heavily inspired by “retro” gaming, many commenters are delighted to see developers tip their hat to the past, while others complain that they’d rather play more contemporary titles on their high-spec hardware.
Today’s questions then:
Do you play retro or retro-inspired titles? If yes, what is it about nostalgic games that keeps you coming back? If no, why not?
To mark the impending arrival of both Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge on PS3 and Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Plus on PS Vita, we’ve got five copies of Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus on PS Vita to award to the most entertaining or thoughtful respondents. Good luck!
