Things about the classics that piss you off

I read this on a retro site that I frequent. Thought this place could come up with some entertaining responses.

Basically, I'm asking about the old school systems... primarily the NES, Genesis, even PC.

Mine, from NES, were the mile long passwords. I never understood how some games had 5 character password but others had 20+ (Rambo, anyone?). Also when they never fucking worked after double checking them!

    I used to hate how you couldn't save on the old systems.

    How you could only move left and right:mad: but then again you can't really talk too much shit on the oldies because they spawned every game we have today.

    A part of me sort of misses the old 2d platformer.

    Myself as well. Also, I actually meant this topic to include personal issues, even with certain games. Like if you couldn't beat a certain boss on FF2 or whatever!

    In that case motherfucking Ninja Gaiden. Shit was so hard also that level of Battletoads where you had to dodge all these obstacles while on a vehicle. I think they were stone walls or logs or something.

    Haha go play Rolling Thunder. Oh my fucking god. Hardest game ever. If you get hit by 1 fucking bullet, you die. Also once you jump up or sideways you cannot stop, so if a guy pops up or shoots where you're going to land you die. The enemies wear multi-colored KKK outfits. Everyone should play it.

    Wait I just remembered GODDAMN GHOULS AND GHOSTS. Nothing has pissed me off as much before or since I played that fucking game. i never even got past level 1. It was so ridiculous. I've never nerd raged so hard in my life.

    I hate playing something new now, and then reverting back to a classic game which has seemingly terrible physics, graphics, storyline and sounds :D

    This dosnt affect me if I go back something really old like Sega Genesis or SNES. But if I got back to like Ps1 then yeah it pisses me off.

    In the days before auto-saving, when checkpoints were like two hours apart, and the next checkpoint was only accessible after you beat some fucking hard boss.

    Yeah same here. If it's a 2D game I don't care but old 3D games are just awful now.

    I think it's because 2D games dont look like there even trying to look that great where as old 3d games you can tell they tried to make it look awesome but it just looks so full of fail now.
