Top Ten Stupidest Things Nostalgic Retro Gamers Say

Gamers can be pretty stupid at times but I believe the most annoying gamers are the super nostalgic retro and I feel that some of their points are incredibly stupid (just because you play retro games doesn't mean I dislike you as a person I am just saying what I think are the most annoying things that super nostalgic retro gamers say)

The Top TenXW

1Kids today can't play the old games

Try Retro Mix, it contains a bunch of retro games from the 80s & 90s. - ruJILLous

2My childhood was better than yours

I hate when people say this. It makes some 90s kids (not all) look egotistical just because of the decade they were born in. - Pony

I hate when people say this on YouTube. - Metts

Yeah yours was so much more fun. You had squares shoting lines at each other! We only have people in steel gear holding bazookas! - ruJILLous

3Today's game developers don't have respect for old games

Then why do remakes and emulations exist? - Skullkid755

Yeah they do. Ever heard Virtual Console? - Metts

4Every game today is a gritty war shooter

Well most games but Super Smash Bros. and Mario games today aren't FPS. - Metts

5Call of Duty ruined gaming

Seriously I'm not necessarily a fan of Call of Duty but it has not ruined gaming - Gamer4life

I guess they only look at the Fanbase, not the games

I kinda think they do. All the kids at my school play it and ignore Mario and Super Smash Bros. and they ignored me for trying to convince them to play Mario and Super Smash Bros. - Metts

6Games today are too easy

Not all of them are too easy, today you can save data and stuff which you cannot till the late NES - early SNES days. - Metts

Try playing the impossible quiz. - ruJILLous

7Old games are deep and complex

If you're meaning games like Metal Gear Solid 1 or Final Fantasy then I can understand that but that's the only game that I find deep and complex.

I'm telling you, they've missed out on Mass Effect, Heavy Rain, Halo and lots of indie made by lesser known game developers - SuperHyperdude

Agreed I wasn't saying there weren't some old games that had some complex stories I was talking about the people who make claims about how super Mario bros shows the nature of the human condition or any of that stuff that seems like making stuff up to mask the fact that most (not all) people who played these old games in the 80s or 90s just can't accept that their childhood is over and that maybe times have changed, and since you mentioned mass effect what game in the 80s or 90s had the style of player choice that mass effect did - Gamer4life

8Kids Today Are stupid because they don't know what the Sega Genesis is.

To whoever put this on the list thank you how did I not think of something like this when I was making the list and I've encountered so many people who use this argument (mostly 90s kids) - Gamer4life

Whoever said this must have never heard of the new sonic games. - ruJILLous

I know what a Sega Genesis is and I've haven't played it before. - Metts

That's not true, because my Dad in fact owned a Genesis. - Pony

9All Video Games today are for adults

That's a game stereotype. They're some games for kids and teens like Mario, Smash Bros. and many other Nintendo games. - Metts

Yes. YAR. They let kids play RATED-M games like Grand Theft Auto
When they become adult, they will kill inocent people like the Grand Theft Auto game
My little cousin play that and I can't stop it...

10Generation 1 is the best and anything after that isn't Pokemon!

I've never played Pokemon but I'll guess Generation one is the best. - Metts

Gen 1 was best. No doubt. But other pokemon games exidt. They are still fun.

The Contenders

11People have no respect for Nintendo these days

I said that in school after many kids playing Call of Duty and not Nintendo games. - Metts

12The NES is the Best System Ever

Good when it was newer, but it hasn't aged well. - Skullkid755

The Wii U, GameCube, and N64 are my favorite systems but if you like the NES the best, that's perfect! You can like what you want and what has games you loved. The NES is good for helping gaming evolved. - Metts
