Definately. I don't know how people can forget this.

Still, I enjoy my bad NES games much more than bad next-gen games. My mind works in 8 directions. This 3d stuff just confuses me. I'd much rather miss a platform by jumping too late or because of poor collusion detection rather than a shoddy camera angle or a bad sense of forward distance. It's like, with an NES game, I can suck at a game and it's my fault. With newer games, I can suck at the game and I can blame it on the camera waaaay too easily.

Yeah, that's what I'm trying to say <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>
