On the other hand, some games do age well. While I wouldn't want to suffer through the interface of Dune II, I booted up and played Total Annihilation (1996) last year, and it still plays great. The only thing I miss is the infinite zoom out from SupCom. And Quake II, Diablo II, & Alpha Centauri are all games I've played recently and gameplay is still great and the graphics get the job done even if they don't have specular highlights and per pixel lighting.

ON the other other hand, I'd not want to play Jane's Longbow 2, Ultima IV or V, Betrayal at Krondor, or anything like that. There gameplay would be just too clunky and the graphics too poor to impart an experience I'd expect with today's games.
