Are video games getting too complicated? I'm about to sell my ps3 and buy a N64 and get all the bad ass games I played as a kid. Like super smash bros, Mario party, mario kart, banjo kazooie. Am I alone on this?

You know 10-15 years from now some guy's going to be saying the same thing right? Is it just me or are video games getting far too complicated these days? I'm going back to the old games i played growing up as a kid. Like call of duty, skyrim, and assassin’s creed; fuck all this virtual reality shit! Then theirs me I personally love the direction video games have been going but still take the time to go back and enjoy the classics like Pong, Tetris, Punch Out, Diablo, Street Fighter, Majora’s Mask, Gauntlet Legends, sly cooper, Spyro, and so many other old classics to even be worried about shit like this just enjoy what you do and do what you enjoy =p

gauntlet legends=one of the most underrated/unheard of awesome video games...

I agree, I remember waking up early on the weekends and playing it from morning to night with my two older brothers. I absolutely loved that game. I bought Gauntlet Seven Sorrows for the PS2, but it's just not the same.

N64 is the greatest game system ever created tho the controller is weird as fuck but super smash Mario cart some bud and close friends is an excellent mixture for a good time

I agree...specially when you're high and want a simple but cool game to play. The graphics and story may not be as awesome as other shit, but it's still damn good...

Maaan ive been rocking the nes snes n64 and anything else necessary since 93' thats all you need

The N64 is no doubt a hardy, extremely fun system with nearly innumerable hits. Super Smash Bros. 64, Mario Kart and Super Mario 64, Donkey Kong 64, and many others have kept with me since I was a child. Though I will say after playing games of today with all the storylines and plot twists, I almost find the old games too simplistic and easy sometimes. I dunno, maybe they just seemed harder as a kid.

I posted something like this before. Except I also suggested they make wireless controllers for them

N64 best thing ever!!!!! i want one... i could never sell me ps3 though

My mum didn't buy me a ps2 until around 4 years ago, and she didn't make a mistake. Video games were simple and beautiful back then, with so much thought going into it. I couldn't imagine what I would be like if I didn't cherish N64. I have so many friends who think the same way.

i love complicated games though, they make me think and always show me something new you know. Its kinda cool to see the technology progress through video games in a way and seeing new ingenious\awesome video game ideas come up from peoples minds.

I was just saying to my roomate the same thing the other day. I love games like risk on my ps3 and old games like prince of persia and god of war from Ps3.

You inspired me. Set up my N64 in my smoke cave last night. Definitely not a poor decision. Ocarina of Time currently at water temple. Perfect Dark marathon tonight. Just a pity you can't play these classic games online multiplayer!

I had that same thought recently, but then I bought borderlands 2 and felt a little better about the situation.
