What is it with all the "OLD" games??

Recently, I've realized there are just too many old games being rebooted on iOS, and I think that this is unhealthy for the growth of the platform. Seriously, if you played a game 10, 20 or 30 years ago, what purpose is there to play it again? Why not try playing new games set and made for the modern world?

There's been Jet Set Radio/Crazy Taxi by Sega, whole list of Final Fantasy by Square Enix, GTA games by Rockstar, Raiden Legacy, Carmageddon....and really so many more that I don't bother to care about.

When will this madness end?

You just lost all credibility when you complained about rockstar porting the GTA games.

I haven't heard of that problem. But the game itself is excellent. Don't complain if you have an outdated device; it works and looks beautifully on current ones.

Well big point is rockstar states on the app page works for iPod 4 and it doesn't so people are gonna hurry and get it then see that it doesn't.

On minigore 2 it works for now but after updates it will keep crashing and play crappy like dead trigger

Is complaining about true "console-quality" games in the App Store a thing now?
