    I miss challenging games. These days everything is just dumbed down.

    I miss my 16-bit too. I really miss my Shining force and it being a strategy game and not a hack and slash.

    Every once in a while I miss Everquest, the OG (for me) of MMORPG.

    I miss having as much time to play games. School and work full time have me bogged down. Even as much as to pass up consentual relations last week for a solid night of Dragon Age.

    I miss the way old school JRPG's used to make me feel. Getting a great cast of characters together to save the world was simply the best. Mechainically old school JRPGs are stale for me. Last really good one I played was Shin Megami Tensei.

    PC games made for PC instead of some shitty port. I want to make the most out of my rig and my mouse/keyboard, i don't want it to be just a glorified console.

    And thank you Bioware for not making the PC version of Dragon Age a shitty port, you gave me hope!

    indeed. it was usually left up to the modding community to build multiplayer if they felt a game warranted such. which brings me to my next point. the modding community isn't as large as it once was.

    That and I believe DICE is giving Battlefield; Bad Company 2 a bunch more stuff for PC gamers and [is saying] that it'll be for PC-only. But anything is subject to change these days.

    I miss AKi wrestling games
    I miss the Rare / Nintendo partnership
    I miss the Sega / Nintendo console wars
    I miss the Game Genie and how it made a frankenstein beast of console's cartridge slot
    I miss a ton of old IPs like Earthworm Jim and even Bubsy
    I miss the cool gimmicks like the Sonic and Knuckles stackable cart thing
    I miss lots of things.. battle of the mascots.. 2D platforming.. when every game didn't look the same.. Nintendo without the silly gimmick controls

    To be honest, I don't even recall the original dashboard. I guess that just goes to show you how irrelevant it really is.

    ^Well I don't remember the last time you talked about your penis, so I guess the same thing goes for it. :/
