Bitmob - Classic games don't always hold up. No lie, some games simply don't age well. They were products of their time, and time moved on. The very first Tomb Raider revolutionized video games in several ways, and its rigid, on-the-grid puzzles and auto-aim gunfights were fun at the time. But when developer Crystal Dynamics remade it a decade later as Tomb Raider Anniversary, they upgraded the gameplay to reflect how I game now; modern designs, greater flexibility, more control. I loved playing Tomb Raider in 1997, but I couldn't go back to it now. I'd play the 2007 version instead.
I have found that MOST of the games are best in my memory......going back and playing them is usually a disappointment. Except for Elevator Action, Faery Tale, Mario Brothers, Zelda, and a select few others.
