I hear you on the old games. And I do agree for the most part. But when it comes to shooters, I tend to be more unforgiving. Personally, I think shooters have undergone the most evolution of all game genres; when you play an old shooter, you can really sense the lack of modern conventions that have become the norm (iron sights, unlocks, etc) For example, I've been playing CSGO for awhile now and even though that particular version is only two years old, the game mechanics are still identical to the original CS of some 10 years ago, something you can feel right away. Now, CSGO can get away with that because of its modern facelift, as well as excellent gameplay design (and even here it took me over a year to come to grips with the game!), but other games...not so much. And while I am not all about the graphics when it comes to games, I do expect more from shooters because the quality of graphics can actually affect your performance, not to mention being vital to the immersion.
