A good time to be a retro gamer.

I admit that I like things that are a little different and I love innovation, but there is a part of me that misses the games of the past. Fortunately retro collections are plentiful on all of the consoles. I won’t go into the gray area of emulation only to say at least now you don’t have to for most games. The Midway collections are great and I eagerly await volume 3. I recently picked up Capcom’s latest compilation. Final Fight and Ghouls and Ghosts are as challenging and addictive as ever. Plus this one also has the two best Street Fighters ever. I really like playing Virtua Racer on the Sega disk but the others are kind of poor. They really would have been better off emulating the originals rather than updating them. I’m just glad they didn’t touch Virtua Racer. Now I wish that Sega would give us a Model 2 compilation. How cool would it be to have VF2, Daytona, Sega Rally and House of the Dead on one disk? A Ridge Racer compilation would be cool too. I don’t even want to think of the possibilities of an SNK disk.
