PC gamer or Console Gamer

Both?

Did you shift? Why?

PC gamer because they were cheaper growing up, by a mile. Used to "buy" games from a store that would pirate and burn them on to physical CDs. Wasn't even aware I was pirating. Even then, there were internet cafes with all kinds of games, the most popular being CS (I actually went to tournaments), Starcraft, MU (a top down MMO), Unreal Tournament, and Diablo 3; my brother used to work there so I could also play the single games to completion. The only one I remember was the early Spider-Man game where the end boss is doctor octocarnage; never tempted to buy a console even now that I can afford it because I'd rather biff up my slightly better than average PC; don't see the appeal, never did past a certain age where consoles were the Apple of the gaming industry, easy to use, small, practical; I'm an engineer so I loved tinkering and fixing my broken down computer and upgrading and just messing around in general; now this current generation is both lacking and pointless when I can play similar/the same games but with a mouse rather than a joystick+autoaim. I'm a PC mustard ricer in the sense I know PC is better, but I'm a PC asian ricer because I can't afford to bring it to its full potential

Used to play ps2 most of the time, Ratchet and clank, Kingdom hearths, those WWE games...
Then, after I got my hands on css, I started playing both Pc and Ps3, both pretty fun.
Most of the time my friends would come over to my house and play some CoD zombies on Der Rise.

Used to be PC because I could use my dad's PC, now console because my parents are divorced and I got a free Xbox and a cheap PS3
Still play some old games or indie games on my shitty laptop though

Necropolis has been extremely fun, i like everything about it

i like the combat and figuring out which weapon i should have by what level.

and the Brazen Head is a really funny narrator that taunts you throughout the dungeon crawl.

if you're thinking about picking it up don't waste your tokens of favor on the golden chest the Brazen Head presents you with and always buy at least one scroll of identification at the end of the level.

ITT: what old games are you revisiting/are you/why/why not?

I'm going through point and click games I never finished as a kid because my phone has an emulator for those types of games (SCUMM, I think?)

I wanna download, but for my PC, zoo tycoon (with the two expansions), and airline tycoon

Never go back to old games you loved as a child...
The controls are shit, the graphics are vomit inducing (and I don't mean "bad" but incredibly outdated... speaking of which), the gameplay is outdated, the AI is fucked, the level design doesn't compare to a lot of modern ones...

Some games are worth going back to, of course, like Link to the Past and Conker's Bad Fur Day (so... SNES and PS2 are your best bets to find something you'd enjoy)

Holy shit, I have no idea how I finished some of these games...

That only happens if you were a particularly deprived child with no access to any other form of entertainment and hat to beat yourself into the delusion that Megaman Legends was good or something like that. In any other case a fun game is still a fun game, that never changes.

Standards get refined and change over time

Your teenage girlfriend will grow up to have a nice pair of tits and ass, for example

Or she was fat and then slimmed down, and now you can't imagine how you could have loved her

Same goes for you. A lot of people age incredibly well.

Games are the same. There are gems that have aged incredibly well (like L2The Past, Metroid, Half Life to some extent) but a vast majority look like they've been doing crack all those years you haven't seen them...

Your metaphor is inherently flawed because games don't change over time. Basically you're saying "I was so deprived of good games when I was growing up I would have licked shit off the floor to entertain myself". You wouldn't have dated a fat girl 10 years ago, you wouldn't date her now. Your game doesn't get fat. If games were so shit back then then, again, it mostly sounds like you had fuck all to do with your free time.

or I was a poor fuck, you poor fuck, and had to settle with whatever my parents/cousins could afford
but that's neither here nor there

Fine. Your tastes get better. Your tastes change. You go from a poorfag that had bread with butter and sugar to nutella and whenever you try the bread thing again it tastes like shit because your tastes have grown as well.

How about legos? You had Funblocks growing up and now you have Legos. One's clearly better but only over time did you get your hands on legos. You start seeing flaws in the Funblocks and can't enjoy them anymore. There are still some Funblock parts that you like (maybe the figurines, maybe size, whatever)

Old games don't change, you do, and your tastes. It's not a ladder you go up on with age, it's a tree garden where some fruit still taste good while other you go "how the fuck did I ever like this...?"

Honestly my tastes have never changed. I don't get how that works. Like, ever. I may like some things more or less over time, 'cause I am a human and so, but I've never learnt to dislike shit with age or like shit as I get older. Hell, I could suck on a pacifier right now; that shit's cathartic and the sound's pretty fun. Warm milk's tasty. I hated Mortal Kombat as a kid 'cause it was slow as fuck; I hate Mortal Kombat as a rickety old man 'cause it's slow as fuck. Castlevania was fun 'cause it's designed with good pacing and to make you think about how to find the one way with limited tools to tackle a challenge when I was 5; Castlevania is fun 'cause it's designed with good pacing and to make you think about how to find the one way with limited tools to tackle a challenge now. Fluid controls weren't a pipedream; mario moved smoothly, Castlevania is slow by design not by fault. Did no one ever go to the movies? The world could see that every game in the N64 looked like arse; it dropped the same year as Toy Story, it wasn't inconceivable to see good computer graphics at the time.
I thought Half-Life 2 was shit 'cause yeah, the physics engine was cool but making see-saws every 20 minutes was boring and stupid. Nowadays the game is still shit, the physics engine isn't cool, but it's shit because making see-saws is still boring and stupid. I didn't watch movies from the 80s 'cause the yellowy colours made me nauseus, even though they were new at the time. They yellowy colours are off-puting now that they're old.

and your tastes/time has stagnated since..?

I used to love point and clicks as a kid, for example, but now they're just wasting my time, as did a lot of old games I can't go back to because I don't have the time and energy

My tastes went from slow and steady, to "whatever, godmode_on, I just want to see the story", to "Gimme the hardest difficulty!!"

Without save states, for example, I would never even attempt some of the older games because they were made to be time wasters thanks to the limited space.
Others I can't play because of the outdated graphics, where they were trying to make it look as modern as possible and ironically look dated now. The games that had a coherent artstyle, on the other hand, remained timeless.
Other examples include tropes, repetitive gameplay, bad pacing, bad porting from arcade games, etc. etc. etc.

I'd play NFS Underground over any more recent NFS game

But as an avid Starcraft player as a kid, I wouldn't go near the game now...

I went from slow burners to fast paced shooters

I've always been down for everything. I don't have "tastes" per se. I like hard games, I liked going through Ikari Warriors just doing ABBA. Both were fun, both are fun. Why would I restrict myself to either? No game ever looked remotely modern until shit like Gears of War 2, again, did you people never go to the cinema? Toy Story came out a year before Quake. Quake never looked "modern" it always looked rickety and kind of like crap. Half-Life came out the same year as A Bug's Life, we knew they looked like shite. Repetitive games were repetitive then, they are repetitive now. I don't have the time to drop on a 10 hours Rise of Nations match nowadays but that doesn't mean it's not fun anymore, just not viable. And there is a difference betweeen just not being able to indulge the games that consume a lot of time and not liking them, but I see no reason to stop liking them ever.

I don't think you can choose what you like... I'm saying a lot of times Nostalgia won't be enough to enjoy a game
It looked better then because there was no better alternative.

It's how all cultural wars start... well, most of them. Nintendo VS Genesis was a thing because the parents could only afford one, so the kids had to convince themselves and others that "they made the right choice"

I'm sorry it looked like shit to you; my mind was blown at the time but looking back at it now... ugh... Going back to 80s cartoons like I loved as a kid, oh, boy, was it absolute shit, but I loved it at the time because it was the best thing on at the time.

honestly, most of them

There are more outdated games than there are retro

That 007 with four screen capabilities for example is utter sheit by today's standards. It was brilliant at the time but damn did it not age well...
Most game that tried 3 when it was still early are like that, honestly. They didn't really know what they were doing.
