5 Reasons Your Old Gaming Console Is Still Awesome


It's easy to get sucked into the frenetic shiny-new-thing buying cycle—especially when it comes to gaming. Nintendo's Wii U is in the wild, and thanks to Microsoft and Sony, there's a powerful new generation of consoles right around the corner. The graphics are going to blow your mind, the games look epic, and you should form your allegiance and pre-order immediately ... right?

Not so fast. Your "old" gaming hardware has tons of life in it yet. No matter which system's flag you're flying, here are some big reasons you should be looking back, not forward.

I'm too young and didn't grow up with retro console games, but a couple years ago I stopped buying and playing new games.

I found an Android SNES emulator (it was called Tiger SNES, I believe) and started downloading 7th Saga, Castlevania and the likes.

It is illegal, but I managed to keep respecting my self-imposed moral laws by donating to the companies that made those games decades ago. Many of these companies are still active, so if you can't donate directly just go order one of their new games online and gift it to a neighbor's kid.
