We aren't going to say anything bad about the video games of today. Modern video games are head-and-shoulders above old-school games in all respects - except for nostalgia. There's just something about those classic games. Sonic. Galaxian. Super Mario Bros. 3. Jimmy Neutron. 007: Golden Eye. Super Mario World. Makes us think back wistfully to long summers spent on the couch with our favorite console, which eventually ended up in Mom and Dad's basement or the attic, covered in dust.
