Games "So, to summarise this buyer's guide to next gen consoles: don't." Yahtzee, as usual, nails it. I particularly like the apt description of how you used to buy a console because it had the specific games you wanted, whereas now it feels like you're buying a console because it's holding the games you want hostage.

Amiga games were some of the most enjoyable to play. Cadaver, Alien Breed, Space Marines, Turrican, Micro Machines, Flood, Populous, Gods, ...

Now games are mostly just tech demonstrations of game engines. Yup, fantastic, graphically intense, surround sound, but you already pay for the machine a great bill (PC or PS) and then games. I hope you get something in return for the price paid.

Retro gaming through Mame and emulators is fantastic. Get second hand games for 1$ of nothing, grab the ROM/disc image, launch the emulator, procrastinate.
