I've been listening lately that old games are automatically bad or mediocre
I do not know how old it has to be, or what kind of games it is

    It depends on what game. Some old games are really good, some aren't. Take Half Life or Half Life 2 for examples of good old games.

    Solid gameplay endures, no matter how old a game is or how 'dated' it's graphics may become.

    Games are games because they are for fun.  Fun doesn't get old.

    What kind of elitists have you been talking to? I have a friend who only plays games for the graphics, and I played Super Contra with him, and he found it quite fun.

    Old games modding > new games modding by far, Don't even think of dropping support for old games or else face the rath of modders dropping this site all together like the great purge of the viruses in your ads.

    What's the point of asking this on a forum dedicated to modding older games?

    Not only do I believe that old games are good, but I also believe that they're much better than the new ones.

    I also believe that whoever said that shit to you is fucking retarded.

    I don't think so. Old games can be very fun to play tho... like MediEvil, though the quality of the game looks indeed bad, but the way how this game is a dark and humored theme game, its actually enjoyable game.

    Whoever told you that is a goddamn fool. 

    Just like our founding fathers, old games are what paved the way to the ones we have now. Good and bad games, bad games shown the world what doesn't work and good games the opposite. For their time, old games are just as good as new ones.

    Although 20 years from now CS:GO is going down in history as the bad game that was successful enough and as  the game that destroyed gun games with useless gay skins as DLC instead of real content, and made videogames a contest "sport" that thinks everyone gives a shit about their gameplay streams. Spreading into every game that has guns in it via the modding community. Team Fortress 2 will go down as a prime example of a game that was used and abused by its intrepid creators.
