Post Step in the time machine as the Ars OpenForum talks retro gaming

Remember Altered Beast?

One advantage of playing video games in 2012 is that users can take their pick across genre, platform (hear our recent podcast onPCs versus consoles), solo games, MMOs, and more. With many decades of games behind them, players can now also select games based on era. Many find retro titles highly replayable, even if they are played on a ROM or are downloaded online. If you grew up playing Space Invaders, Joust, or Altered Beast, you can still get your fill at any time.

Recently in the Ars OpenForum, fngurrier kicked off a thread aptly named 'Retro gaming' in order to see what vintage titles Ars readers are playing. If you're looking for a list of games highlighting the obvious choices like Ms. Pac-Man, Ocarina of Time, or Sonic, you won't find it here. Some of the games discussed are going to surprise you, and others will jog your memories of youth because they are so familiar, so fun.We posted some selected video clips from some of these titles below as we discover what OpenForum members are saying.

Papaspider's definitely a fan of the 1980s titles: 'Anywho, I've been playing a lot of Spy Hunter (1983) lately. Oil slicking those damn switchblades never gets old."
