What retro video games are you playing at the moment? And what is it you enjoy (or loathe!) about them in particular?
At the moment I've been sating my cravings for 16-bit era video games by working through the Soul/Gaia series (Soul Blazer, Illusion of Gaia/Time, and Terranigma - ring any bells with anyone?).
I just completed Illusion of Gaia actually (an action/adventure game on the SNES). I loved the rather over-the-top, Japanese-flavoured plot about a Comet passing by Earth whose light mutates all forms of life beyond recognition. It's a pretty linear game but the story is enjoyable and has a few intense moments as well! The soundtrack also contains some of the best music I've ever heard on a SNES game too.
