I still enjoy playing through older games that I liked back in the day, though like mch said the novelty wears off and I don't usually finish it. But going back and playing old games for the first time just doesn't seem to work with me. For example, I never played the original Xcom (Blashphemy! Gamer card revoked!), so I tried it before the new game was out. Yeeaaaahhhh, that didn't work out. Still bought the new one as the style of game appealed to me anyways but the old one was just too primitive for my taste.

XCOM is one of the few I can easily return to. The first 30 minutes or so are eyebleed city, then it's ok. And some of the newer mods for it fix a few of the things I hated about it. I don't remember if they fix the zero-clips-during-base-defense issue, but you can turn off PsiOps. All things considered I despise PsiOps.
