|It's not all nostalgia!|
It's not all nostalgia that gets people to play old games though, I play snes more than any other console most probably and I started my gaming after getting an n64. I never actually had a snes until after getting my gamecube and have been rapidly playng through a mass of snes rpg's since that day. Snes rpg's do rule, or maybe I just have thing for 2d games...?

I disagree about nostalgia. The games that play well last well. Super graphics or not.
The earliest games were hard to play on computers. Gaming advanced greatly once a game paddle no longer cramped the hands.
But the games that lasted had no time stamp on them. So the topical games tied to movies, sports and cartoons faded. The others thrived, and still do, moved by popular demand.
Gamers just want to have fun!

I think a big factor that influences playing through a snes game again is nostalgia. Because Snes games were relatively simple and straightforward (there are exceptions) you could picture yourself playing them as a child. So sitting down with a good snes rpg you played as a child (or long ago) will influence your desicion to play it again....
there is also preferance... NO! what am i sayin'? it's all nostalgia!

'Course, you have to realise that the amount of time it takes to play these games factors into my opinion. After all, would you rather replay an 80 hour behemoth or a short-n-sweet 20 hour game?

Yeah, the 16-bit era pretty much wins this one. It was back when RPGs finally picked up control schemes that were fluid and quick, and before they were crammed with time consuming cutscenes. Granted, I do enjoy cutscenes and the like, but I just have this feeling in the back of my head that they're part of the reason I never replay any RPGs from 1997 onwards.
I think I've got about 8 or 9 full replays on FFIV, though, seeing as I've owned it since 1992, that's not too good of a number.

|Call your bets|
Who doesn't see SNES era winning? After all most of the site is about that time. Personally I've played and replayed A Link To The Past, partly thanks to the cartridge failing me. When you wished to show someone (yourself for instance) Ganon's Turm (ehm, Tower) you just had to play till there. Really addictive game.
