(Don't) Do This:
Download a full set of NES or SNES roms.
Start playing them in a random order and keep track of how many games are actually good.

While some games are great, there are many many MANY downright BAD games.

Also, games age. In fact, there have been many articles written about how BAD and AGED Golden Eye is. This doesn't mean is was a bad game (it was one of the best of it's time), it just means that it has AGED.

I still play Goldeneye and DOOM with the guys at my weekly LAN, and we play COD4 along with GEARS and L4D too. Just because its using old game mechanics doesnt mean its not a helluva fun game and of damn fine quality.

Unless designated as CoD5 by the developer, it's not CoD5.

My mistake. I enjoy old games more because my PC has its limits. Ie it's shitty. I would enjoy more recent games if I could run them, but that's my reason, my very vague reason as to why I prefer games from 2000 over games that came out recently.

Sorry I didn't say it. I'm a PC gamer with a 7100 GS, and not so great specs. I can't upgrade just yet.

i guess we have our difference in opinions then.
i see it as if its considered to be COD5 by almost everyone, then it would actually be considered to be COD5, while youre considering that it would have to be publicly stated that thats actually what the title is, instead of assuming that it is so.
