Castlevania I on the NES. At this point i can finish the first stage with my eyes closed, though the uncontrollable jumping combined with the flying enemies is still as hard to pull off as it has always been.

Cool. I had Zaxxon on my Colecovision too. My favorite from back then though, was and is Time Pilot.

Ugh, Castlevania.

Loading Video...

Go to near the end of the video to see the hallway before Death diagram. ARGLE BARGLE. It is so insane. Anyhoo, the oldest game I played recently was likely Donkey Kong Jr. for the NES via the Wii U VC.

That is definitely another one in my backlog that I need to try to play. I've heard so many great things about it.

Hmm, has to be a old MaME game, think it was Donkey Kong or Loadrunner.

Here's a hint, play it like an adventure game, that's the best way to enjoy the game - turn down the difficulty because that only affects the combat (which sucks), and 9 times out of 10 you can avoid combat alltogether.

There are a ton of well designed solution solving that'll keep you occupied, and the game is all about the fantastic soundtrack, brilliant characters and incredible story.

Try to stick with it until you meet the ghost. That's were the plot kicks in, and if you manage to finish it, i don't doubt that you'll be thinking for days about what can change the nature of a man.

And don't forget the mods. The game is trully beautiful to look at in HD.

Just this afternoon I was playing the 1978 version of Space Invaders... Space Invaders II is better. It was on the excellent Taito Collection that was released for PS2 and XB.

Thanks. I might have to bump up Torment in my To Play list.

You know, i've been meaning to get that game for my Dreamcast for weeks now, but given what i heard about it (random encounters being a hellish frustration), that kept me from checking it out every time.

Half-life 2! I haven't played it so far but really wanted a chance to do so. When it was on sale on Steam I just had to buy it!

Pharaoh. I just can't let it go. One of the best and richest city-building games ever made, no doubt, and still perfectly playable today.

Medal of Honor Frontline.

Was playing some Company of Heroes and I got an itch to play some WWII shooters so I popped it in. Such a fantastic soundtrack.

The oldest game I've played within the last couple of weeks would probably be Speed Punks on original PlayStation. It's certainly a very under-appreciated kart racer, and was really ahead of its time by standing out from the multitudes of Mario Kart imitators of the era.

For some reason I've always thought there wasn't much interest in the game. Happily, I've been seeing that I'm wrong in that understanding.

I was just playing Genma Onimusha, it's an enhanced port of the original Onimusha on the PS2, for the OG Xbox. Better graphics, more content and better balance, basically the definite version to get.

It uses pre-rendered backgrounds similar to Resident Evil, and they're beautiful to look at. Now the controls are a little iffy, it uses an improved version of the tank controls found in the old RE games. But given the fact that i strongly dislike the tank controls of RE, and don't mind the one in this game, you know that they've been improved. It takes about 5 minutes to get used to them.

The combat is great and fast, and i can defend against the enemies at any side, thus i don't have to worry about getting a backside slash if i'm fast enough. The atmosphere and japanese voice acting (i can switch between the english and japanese voice acting) are fantastic, and the cutscenes are impressive as hell.

Overall i'm about 30 minutes in, and this game is pretty damn awesome from the get go. I'm probably going to spend my time beating it before moving to something els.

Yeah it did seem that way. Not a lot of people talk about it, even back when it was released

Played the original Tenchu: Stealth Assassins a few weeks ago. It's still as amazing a game as ever on a technical level. Visually it's atrocious- just... horridly ugly. The controls have no option to invert, and no scheme for dual analog control. The draw distance is about 12 feet in a game that revolves around complete situational awareness.

So in total it's an excellent game that's been given a horrible beatdown at the hands of time.
