I can't bring myself to do it anymore. There's new things i want to try and every time I find myself picking up an old game I just can't get into it anymore. Any one still die hard on replaying old favorites (I'm talking OLD, like from the previous generation and back)?

Yes. I have a PS2 and its been so long since I have played the games its like they are brand new again. Unfortunately the PC games like Close Combat aren't so compatible with the new OS's. :(

Thanks. :)

Yeah I just can't bring myself into playing old games anymore. I've been trying to do a replay of the original Baldur's Gate forever now, but I always end up feeling like I should be playing something I haven't played before instead.

Recently I completed Paper Mario again. When Halo 3 was going to be released I played through Halo and Halo 2 just because. I still play some older games. Actually, I prefer to find older games that I missed as a kid and play those for the first time, but as far as replaying older games, yes. I played some Star Fox 64, Banjo Kazooie, Banjo Tooie, Goldeneye and Diddy Kong Racing just a few months ago.

Close Combat 2: A Bridge Too Far still plays great in 64-bit Win 7.

Of course, I still play NES games when I get a chance. Of course, I typically don't finish them again, but I just play enough to get a taste of the nostalgia.

I play old console games via Wii Virtual Console because they're still fun and because of nostalgia. Most pc games that have skirmish mode or custom mission builder, I still play.....if they still worked.

Today's games i rarely go back and play, there seems to be less replayability. However, i do have my original NES stored away and honestly the difficulty on some of those old games was pretty high as the game mechanics were so limiting which makes them a fun replay.

Yeah, I do it all the time. I don't buy many games, so I tend to go back to old ones a lot.

Yeah I still replay 'old' games all the time, like the original Metal Gear or Silent Hill. They still remain among my favourite titles. But in some cases I there are some games I just can't revisit. Recently I plugged in my old Megadrive and played some games I remembered being amazing when I was younger, and in replaying them, they were were rarely as I remember, and I was disappointed. In some instances I think it is just better to have the fond memories.

gaming was far better when it didn't have to appeal to the "casual market", so yes i play "old" games frequently.

I'm always replay the old games like red alert 2 and metal gear solid PC version and even nfs series like most wanted and carbon. Carbon PC version is the worst one compared to the ps2 version.

I usually play through a game on normal difficulty first time around, but if I've enjoyed the game; I'll start another game straight away on a harder difficulty until bored.. usually returning to it till complete whilst taking a break from newer titles..

Sandbox titles and other long games; once played are usually forgotton about for many many monthes (especially if I've racked up 100's of hours on my first play through, Oblivion, Fallout 3ect) Eventually returning to them to complete them once again using completely opposite gameplay tactics compared to my first playthrough..

So basically all my games get played twice minimum.

I used to do it alot, but not so much anymore due to the lack of time. I have Chrono Trigger from the SNES on the DS i will sometimes play. If i had more time i would go through many of the old games.
