    When hardcore purists complain about new things it kind of gets on my nerves.

    These days I tend to like older things more but I also like new the things too when it comes to video games, movies, TV shows, and music. Pretty much with everything else I like the older things.

    I have the same sentiments.
    I'd buy that for a dollar.

    I want more of your opinions! Are you still trying to discover new things, or have you found peace with what you grew up with?

    Pretty much this.
    I mean had anyone told me 30yrs ago that the current timeframe then is awesome for whatever generic reason I would have jeered thinking that an earlier time was even better But...dental medicine has been far better...and I've even gotten a form of Lasik done on my eyes back in 1999...best money I ever spent, and I hear the operation has improved loads.
    Still prefer listening to vinyl though. And even though I like video games, (Planescape has always been my fav because of story told, not because of graphics), I still prefer going outside. Reading a book rather than a tablet....And comic-books were an addiction...then. Today, they're an embarrassment.

Other then that all your cities wound up pretty much identical, just in a different shape.

    I can feel nostalgic towards old stuff, but my interests mainly lie, in gaming as well as things in general, the future and the new things that come with it.
    Now you see it. Now you don't.

    Only played Pharaho demo, but did played Caesar and still have Master of Olimpus/Master of Atlantis in my computer, all of these 3 game have been realesed by Sierra, which was Blizzard's sister company.

    On-Topic:
    I tend to enjoy old stuff a lot more. SmartPhones for exemplo really annoy me, they huge, and you almost can't put them inside a pocket.
    For video games, i always prefer gameplay over graphics (one of the reasons i didn't got WCIII Reforged), old games are normally simple to play whille some do have complex gameplay. Today's games feel like if their code has been overwritten, no one cares with the size of final product, in the other hand 20 years ago the amount of implemented programing was very important, for exemple, WCIII is able to run on a AMD K6-2, and it was written in the days of P4's. Today it feels that games like WoW are just overwritten, just too much implementation.
    i Also tend to enjoy old music and old videos a lot more.

    T2 is one great example, they still yet to match it, comparing with the movies of the series made after.

    I still love me some old city building games. All of them, but Pharaoh takes first place for me. Emperor Rise of the Middle kingdom likely comes second

    Lol! Depends on what it is. Like movies. Some are better than some of the crap they put out now. I have a old ratchet wrench, which was made in the late 1960's. It still works great and I like it much better than the crappy newer one I have.

    I appreciate newer things, but I enjoy the older stuff a bit more, like with video games, cars, movies, and music (Le Nozze Di Figaro Act 4, Ah Tutti Contenti is my ish).

    Like racism and work based sexual assaults. They may be dicks and annoying but I will take that over the old days.

    Artists get better at their craft over time, even though it takes a lot of creativity to make new and fun experiences, gameplay mechanics, characters, stories, etc. With that said the first 2D and 3D games will hold a timeless appeal because they were the best that artists could come up with given the technology of their time.

    Always discovering new things. Art or science will never be able to stay the same. It'll always require new ideas and venturing from the known to the unknown.

    We still have those today. What he means is, you can not make a movie like Blazing Saddles today. Which is a very funny comedy.

    I have no statistical data available to make an adequate judgement at this point in time, only reasonable answer: It depends.

    Yes. Blazing saddles is very funny if you like racism.

    Well the OP was talking about movies and games so there's no statististical or quantitative way to find out what is truly a better or worse piece of art. Popularity at any given point in time is not a measure of merit.

    Some old games can still be enjoyable, however through the years quality of life mechanics and features have been added that can make it hard to get back into them.
