Old Gamers & Preferred Systems
Here's a long running debate..... Buying an older system to relive the old days of game playing. Which system was better?
It's up to the gamer! But here's a few Pros and Cons.
Sega Genesis: Except for Sonic The Hedgehog it's hard to find fun games for teens. The fighting games they produced were sub-par to Nintendo. "Lacking in imagination and originality". Good side: The system's console last longer, contacts were better quality, Screen resolution was better then Nintendo's early model. The add on 32x, or 32 bit unit that came out later was innovative and worked well. Also The add-on disc player was a great addition. It led to the legendary Dream-Cast system that is still considered one of the best units available. The Dream-Cast lacked proper promotion and soon faded out when Sony released the Playstation 2 system, with plenty of promotional advertisements.
Nintendo NES, The first Full featured game system offered a massive amount of games and attachments. Prior to this game most were still playing Atari Asteroids. This unit introduced a whole generation to the game world. It was produced in massive quantities and made available at almost every retail store. The downside was that the games and inner pins needed to be cleaned all the time. Wiggling, Jiggling, Blowing on, Banging, etc had to be done to keep it going. Soon after Nintendo launched it's Super Nintendo system. Improved graphics! & very little care was needed to keep this game operational. Production was stopped on this winning system to launch the Nintendo 64. Many old gamers still feel that the only reason for this system was Nintendo's greedy owners trying to make users spend more on "the newest system" The gaming world was a tuff competitive market in the late 80's and some manufacturers were loosing money.
Sony stands alone as being the most wide spread of them all. Sony PlayStation One's were overproduced to the point of costing just $18.95 at close-out stores toward the end of it's run (just after release of PlayStation 2) An unprecedented amount of games were created for this system. The disc's scratched easily, not real good news for the moms of kids who played them as they were expensive. 'Cartridges were, and still are much better for little hands'.
Best Cartridge System: Nintendo 64, even with it's quirks.
Best Disc System: Sega Dreamcast, even though under produced. (Games are getting hard to find as well)
Arguments? Let me know! These are just my opinions. If you agree click yes if this guide was helpful. If you disagree, click no, this guide was not helpful.
Remember, This is just for the older systems.
