    Well, after all I'd heard about the game I figured I must have been missing something or not have gone far enough into it or whatever. I eventually just gave up on it.

    You shouldn't have, FFVII was an awesome game and has one of the best stories in video game history.

    Yoshi's Story for the N64. I used to love it when I was younger but I downloaded it on VC and I realized it's really short. It's still pretty fun though.

    Another game that I thought that didn't age well, was Fallout. It's battle system was week (a turn based strategy game were you only control one person?), you can't customize party members, and I thought that the interface was confusing (despite it being simple).

    After watching Sonic Rush for the DS, the original Sonic doesn't seem that good anymore.
    But I take a look at the "next gen" Sonics and then that Genesis one looks so damn awesome.

    Age of Empires II might be a bit too recent to fall under 'classic gaming', but I played it all the time when I was 10, and loved it. I don't know how I loved it, but I remember it being my favorite game EVER.

    Now, it's unplayable - units die too easily, it's generally too time-consuming to conquer the AI, and the graphics blow even more than Lara Croft (is that possible).

    I shut down FEAR the other day to play Quake 4. Granted neither game is that old, but Fear really got old quick. One game that I will probably play forever is Jedi Knight Academy. Graphics look old but the game is actually fun.

    Age of Empires II is still a kickass game, RTS games uaually take a while to win since they are about outthinking and outstrategizing your opponent.
    Chances are I would pick this RTS over a majority of the ones released in this day and age.

    One game that still feels new to me is Metal Gear Solid... may never stop loving that game.

    But, really I think that there's a game called Rise of the Machines somewhere, it's a fighting game that I used to have, I loved it when I was young, would play it at the youth center and kick the other kids' souls into their bladders, but when I played it about a year ago again... Ugh, it is absolutely no longer fun or pretty, it made me wish I never found it again.

    Pokemon. It really lacks replay. To re-build an awsome Pokemon arsenal takes too much time and effort, that isn't worth it too much the more you play it. Also, the franchise has gone too far.
