When I talk to my friends, I hear it more and more that they think certain games are now classed as 'outdated' or out of touch with the modern games that we can grab now. For me, I'm not a big fan of saying that games are outdated and not worth the time. Games can still be fun, 10, 20 years after they first come out. Just yesterday I finished another playthrough of GTA SA on my PC and it's had me hooked since I started it up again last week, the same with the older Pokemon Gen 1/2 games - they may be old but dang do they keep me hooked in.

What do you think? Can games really just get 'outdated' or can older games still be a massive source of fun?
