Old consoles vs modern

Postby acsi on Tue Dec 27, 2016 5:51 pm

So it was the day before Christmas and I decided to get out the Fountain Force 2 to show the kids (actually to test it as I hadn't done so yet).

The Kids were hooked. Analogue joysticks and all. Fountains Force Olympics were a hit.

Its been interesting to watch them after Christmas day as the household suddenly shot up in the console stakes from a PS2 (still going strong) to a PS4. Took ages to setup accounts for everyone and setup the machine.
Cool graphics etc but the excitement levels are around the same.

So I am left with the feeling that the old Fountain Force and 2600 are probably just as entertaining and by far quicker to get going with than their modern counterparts.

Yes, the simple stuff is sometimes best.
