I like classic-style games in modern packages. Downloads all the way, even better if there's a good mobile port. If this makes you want to tap out "but touch control sucks and micro transactions are the devil," please keep it to yourself and respect my personal preference.

For me it boils down to simplicity and fun. I absolutely love to immerse myself into the world of Fallout 4. But it takes time to learn the quirks and memorize all of the buttons, and it's a one player game. It seems the more modern a system is, the more it centered around a single person. VR being the ultimate single player experience.

 

I would never think of turning on Skyrim for people to play at a party. My 2600 is out and available whenever we have groups of people over, I usually leave Warlords in it. I don't have to explain the buttons or rules for very long. Turn the paddle, press and hold the button, kill the other kings. It's always a hit.

 

Classic wins.

Hard choice.

Went with modern just because of the Batman Arkam games.

Thought to myself, would choose between Zelda:link to the past (which I'm replaying now) or batman.

Than I realized the Arkam games ARE a Zelda game, Start out weak, get upgrade, fight boss, get new toy and access new area - repeat - etc.

Modern, mostly cause all the classics are still there, if you know where to look, modern games can still be loads of fun, and plenty of classic styled modern games too.

While I do play modern games like Little Big Planet, PAIN!, Rag Doll Kung Fu, Goat Simulator, PS2/3 Sims, Lego Anything, PS2 GTA's, and some other stuff, I generally prefer cartridge based systems for speed of loading. PS1 is painfully slow, PS2 is better, and some PS3 stuff is almost a deal breaker for loading times.

The other factor leaning me toward older games is the length of play. I love Read Dead Redemption, but WOW is it time consuming... worth it, yes, but I simply don't have available blocks of time large enough to enjoy it.

 

I am going with early stuff.

Classic because they are just that Classic and lots of fun and not a ton of buttons to use. . . . . . .
