Because retro games are popular, not all of us played this classic back in the day and for those who did its brilliant to come back to an old classic and have this in the palm of your hands on your iphone/ipod.
I'm sure there must be some old PC game you loved and if you heard it was coming to iOS surely you would be excited by that ? I love having old classics like Tapper, Street Fighter, Dragons Lair, Space Invaders and many others in the palm of my hand so i can have a quick go whenever i want.
Its like GTA III, loved it 10 years ago on my Playstation 2, now to have this game on my ipod and play it whenever i want - just amazing. Looking forward to Max Payne as i missed this one back when it was out.
Dated graphics ? MANY retro games have dated graphics but they stand the test of time. Give me a 'dated gameplay/graphics' game like Max Payne over many other new iOS games.
For those who arent excited simply dont buy it. Pokemon/Happy Potter games i cant stand so i simply dont write in those threads.
And what next ? Dont watch black and white films as theyre outdated ? Dont listen to old music ? Its not about the 'outdated graphics', for many people its the memories of playing this years back and playing it again (Like watching the first series of an old favourite tv program etc). The gameplay 'should' be amazing and for me thats what counts. Its like kids saying 'why are you playing crappy ipod games for, get an X-Box 360, the graphics are far better'.
