graphics say nothing about the games.
you will see that in 10 years. when we have better graphics then now. but you still remember the fun you had whit the games of this age.

sound? we have hq surround sound for a while already. =S

and story-line? wtf? you say every game that came out last year has a beter story-line then old games like Final Fantasy 7 or TES: Morrowind?

Not fair to compare every game that is released in a year to two fan favorites. Besides FF7 doesn't even have that good of a story. Way overrated. There are new games that have better tales to tell than Final Fantasy 7. Dragon Age: Origins can easily rival FF7. Mass Effect 2 had a great story; and even simple easily missed backround datalogs in Fallout 3 and New Vegas could give you chills. The logs in Little Lamplight, and the diary in the Matthews Animal Husbandry Farm were great.

dragon age 2 wasn't that good story.
mass effect 2 neither mass effect 1 was better
and i never had chills by the story in fallout either.

dont you see that a story line isn't something that should be said here?
you can't compare story lines of old en new games. so to say new games have a better story-line is simply STUPID!!

How so? Older games had the capability to add in stories just as thick as modern day games. Look at Baldur's Gate or other games of that genre.

dragon age 2 wasn't that good story.

Didn't say it was. The difference between Origins and 2 is rather large.

Again, why not? We are comparing old games to new games. Stories are a vital part of video games. The topic fits very well in this thread.

How so?

because you are comparing the story lines of a entire generation whit the other. it is STUPID to even try and compare them.

for example: (if you agree whit new games have better story-line then old games)
you say that katamari games or the blob have a better story-line then let's say. zelda. or even pokemon red.
that is what you say when you say new games have a better story-l;ine then old games.

you simply CAN NOT compare old and new games based on the story.
once again, that is STUPID.

The difference between Origins and 2 is rather large.

2 i completed.
origins i was getting bored of after a bit and stoped playing.

why not? We are comparing old games to new games. Stories are a vital part of video games. The topic fits very well in this thread.

if you still not see why then i have nothing more to say here.
i made the only sensable thing i could think of in this topic on page 1 after the excelent post of nicho.

you can do it whit this. i wont be saying over and over why it is stupid to compare them.

That argument says this whole thread is "STUPID".  While it is controversial, there's no reason why a discussion can't be had here. No need to get angry.

that is what you say when you say new games have a better story-l;ine then old games.

Didn't say that. I was comparing a newer game to an older game that you brought up. I am not dealing with every new game, I am not comparing every game made in the last 5-10 years with older games. I am pointing out that newer games can easily rival, and have better stories than old games by using specific examples.

  is simply STUPID!!

it is STUPID

  that is STUPID

Lol

agreed.
just like nicho said on the 1st page.

I was comparing a newer game to an older game that you brought up. I am not dealing with every new game,

the topic is about old vs new games.
not this or that old game vs this or that new game.

to say that new games have better storylines then old games is just once again STUPID

I am pointing out that newer games can easily rival,

well thats a useless point.
ofcours they can i thought that would be part of commen sens.
you never seen me counter that.

my point however is that in this topic about old vs new games (meaning all games not just the few you wanna think about) it has no value at all.

and have better stories than old games by using specific examples.

there you go. by useing specific examples.

while your defending the guy that said that ALL new games have a better story then ALL old games. he did not make specific examples.
this is what i call STUPID.

Lol

i just wonder how many times i have to say it is stupid befor you understand the word stupid.

Nothing beats classical games in my case. I'm not talking about back to the 90's old, but older games like the ones in 2005 or so. I am starting to play newer games like Boarderlands and Dragon Age but older games still take the cake for me. I have a hard time getting into shoot em up games like Black Ops and Halo (with the exception of Boarderlands) mainly because the plots don't interest me. Military themed games have never gotten my interest and that seems to be the theme now, hopefully more imaginative plots will pop up later in the future..

It's because developers didn't have the same amount of data that they could put into a cartridge as they do now. So they made the games insanely difficult to make them last longer.

Also, less is more in this sense because the devs had to do more with less, usually making a richer game experience.

Basically, the best kind of game in my opinion would be a game that filled the possible specs of modern games, but had the skill poured into it of an old game.
