I have noticed lately that a lot of people are purchasing games that are older. Let me explain what I mean. A lot of people I know are slowly turning back a generation or two to older consoles and platforms, such as the original Nintendo 64 or the Playstation. In fact many stores such as Game Traders and even Cash Converters are often selling games from the previous consoles, with stores making a fair amount from these purchases.
Now it can be debated as to the reasons that these purchases are taking place. Firstly it could be because many of these games are often regarded as collector’s items. One person I know purposely bought himself a Gameboy Advance just so he can play some of the older Gameboy games. He could have purchased a Nintendo DS or whatever else is new for portable gaming platforms, however he instead degenerated himself to an older level. There is nothing more satisfying than having an old game such as Pokemon Yellow/Red/Blue in your hands after all those years whilst everyone else you know probably traded it in for a piece of crap that they will only enjoy whilst they play it and then trade it in for the next best thing.
The other reason for this change is possibly because older games are more enjoyable than the games of the newer generation, as well as the newer platforms slightly deviating away to become more household entertainment packages as opposed to being something to simply play your video games on. People would prefer to have the enjoyment of a classic good old game, rather than something that is repetitive like Call of Duty, and that is why older games are probably going to become more popular.
