Does it Hold Up?



  • I've never been able to find anything that falls into that category. I'm frequently delving into my collection and replay things from all generations. With exception of no longer having that magic that comes with playing anything for the first time ever, I've still yet to find anything that I enjoy less than when I played it in its day.



  • System Shock 2

    Sort of, it is still playable, there are mods, but as a whole, with respawning enemies and limited ammo plus lots of back tracking make it a chore to play

    Goldeneye was a big part of my childhood.

    Game simply does not hold up.

    Multiplayer is still fun to jump into.



  • @CGamor7 from my experience it isnt



  • This isn't entirely the case, but FF7. I have no issues with the graphics, talking to ppl, the story. The music alone make the game enjoyable. But the one area that kind of prevents me from enjoying it is the battle system. It's slow and repetitive. Otherwise I have no issues jumping into it.

    No your wrong. Your experience is wrong! Your opinon is wrong and golden eye still has world class multiplayer. 😏

    I wasn't trying to invalidate your comment with my comment. But looking at it, kinda sounds like it. Not what I meant.



  • @CGamor7 Strangely, I have the opposite experience with FF7. I thought it was just okay back when I first played it, but playing the PS4 port a few years ago blew my mind. The 3x speed option helps with those slow battles too.



  • @SabotageTheTruth To be clear, I think FF7 holds up just fine. I was saying the only thing that i don't care for is the battle system and how its bogs things down (because ive played it so many times, and the random encounters happen a lot). Its still an amazing game! i don't want to misrepresent that masterpiece lol. Yeah Ive been meaning to get back into it on PS4 before the remake.Can you still earn trophies if you activate the options to speed things up or max out levels?



  • I'm playing FF7 for the first time right now... I know graphics shouldn't matter but I'm really not used to the pre-rendered backgrounds and it's legitimately difficult for me to determine what I can traverse on or interact with in the environment. Doesn't happen all the time, but I got stuck for a frustratingly long time just because I couldn't tell there was a passage leading to the next area. I do like the materia system so far, though, and I'm okay with the battle speed as is. Only 3 hours in, though, so opinions are likely to change.



  • With my enormous backlog, no game holds up :(



  • @naltmank Just to let you know there is a option to show arrows at all exits on the screen (I think its clicking L3 or R3 cant remember) shouldn't be too hard to find out. Hope that helps.



  • @naltmank

    FF VI remake is the answer



  • @FutureCorpse good to know, thanks! I'll look into it.

    Also @MSBi if ONLY it were an FFVI remake :D! Though that game holds up marvelously.



  • @naltmank

    I always say one can dream. We never imagined FF VII getting a remake and neither a Shenmue 3. Dreams are possible. Let me Dream yo!



  • Ocarina of Time
    Super Mario 64



  • @Alex840 Maybe the N64 Version of Ocarina of Time, the 3DS Version HOLDS UP.



  • @Killstriker Nah, I've played it several times in the past few years on 3DS and I can never get more than halfway through. It was impressive at the time, but now I just look at it like the most vanilla Zelda. Still better than TP and SS, but meh.



  • To be honest, there aren't many games I've felt this about. There may be odd systems taking a little longer to do certain tasks that occasionally bug me, but I'm struggling to think of an example where my enjoyment diminishes or I think a game couldn't hold up.



  • Frogger for PC. I don't know why I loved that game so much, I couldn't make it past the first level and usually just watched my mom play. But now I can see what a truly hideous looking game it is. And the exploratory elements were really weird for a game of it's nature.
