      I'm old enough to have a NES and didn't play any of those either. Anyone can fake playing that shit that's always talked about. The only "well known" NES games I played were original mario and double dragon 3.

      People old enough to have had a NES but also old enough to have read magazine reviews, or bought games based on arcade releases would be over 45 now. They moved on, same way SNES homosexuals are slowly disappearing and it's all about N64 shit now like OoT.

    Long and short of it is ecelebs. Back in the day you had the angry gamer archetype that mostly talked about shitty games, but still exposed a lot of people to the NES library. Nowadays that space is dominated by the midwit gamer archetype who thinks that the entire library short of one or two games is outdated.

    A few reasons for this. Zoomers are actually tech illiterate oddly enough. So they not only did not grow up with it but they also can't into emulation. However most of them likely do not care to play NES games since these zoomers see the games as being "too dated" for the modern era. The consoles and games themselves are extremely old. The only ones older that enough retro collectors might care about is Atari but most of those fans are way out of Ganker normal age range.

    NES is definitely still beloved but I highly doubt most zoomers into games would care. Even zoomers willing to play older retro consoles and games or emulating.

        Eh I wouldn't be harsh on it like that. The games are just from a whole other era that most on here weren't alive for so that is why its largely irrelevant to the board and even /vr/. The games are extremely simplistic and they aren't even supposed to be story driven they are completely gameplay and score focused. NES is where games started getting themes and stories and more depth than just simply achieve the high score.

        The Atari is more for literal actual boomers and gen X'ers.

      Why should it be good? Because it's name is popular? Because a niche audience circlejerked super metroid? Or because people who enjoy metroid mostly remember it from prime which was a completely different style of game?

      Metroid was a flop even on release.

          The concept was good but castlevania was just flat out superior in every way.
          That's why they call the indies based on them metroidvania games- they take the level design concepts of metroid but the better gameplay from castlevania.

    Human beings are instinctuallly nostalgic in 20-30 year intervals.
    The NES will be 40 next year, anyone old enough to have grown up with it has outgrown making nostalgia their personality. It'll happen next decade too with the first 3D consoles being talked about less, with PS2/xbox/gamecube and 2000's culture being extremely nostalgic to the mainstream.

    It has already gone from being "retro" "nostalgic" to being a piece of ancient history that may as well have belonged to cavemen

    The NES was about as old when Ganker was created as the PS3/360 are now, those systems are probably what zoomers/alphoomers (aka probably the majority of the board at this point) are thinking about when they think of "retro" games
