Do you really still love playing that game today? If so, why?


It definitely bends my desire to keep my favourite games playable today as it holds up the least. Going in COLD would definitely give you some gameplay shock in 2009... However I did just play it all the way through a couple of years ago and loved it, but with the benefit of already knowing the game and it's quirks, I'm just whipping through it and enjoying being in Another World rather than wondering why there's such a lag to the jumps. To me that seems Another Worldly natural. I'm probably guilty of awarding it bonus points for how mind blowing and unique it was back in 1991 which made up for the 2009 deficiencies, it's true. And I'm fine with that.

Adding a second button in the re-issue sounds terrible. :(
