games that stand the test of time, or don't by Sword of Justice 07/10/2010, 1:06pm PDT
anyone who has played video games for more than 10 years has some old classic they love despite not having the latest graphics or having a sequel out that is more popular or whatever. but the question is, can that game still be considered fun by todays higher standards of game design?
