Is anyone replaying any old games?

I replay my old Genesis and N64 games fairly often. Just to expedite things, for example, I have Dynamite Headdy, Ristar, and a few old Sonic games on Virtual Console.

I'm also playing a couple of old games for the first time: Pools of Darkness (PC RPG) and Knuckles' Chaotix (Sega 32X).

I've honestly played through Fire Emblem 7 (the first stateside one) about seven times...I've honestly lost count, but I'm almost positive the number is close to that.

I prefer Sacred Stones simply because of the gameplay innovations, but I feel that the previous game had a better story, hands down.

Aaaaanyway...I still have the original copy of Fire Emblem I bought in 2003. That seems like an eternity ago.

Anyone else hung on to a game they loved for that long? [Mild topic change, unless people want to continue with the current one]

Soon I will play through Ratchet and Clank 1 for the hell of it too.

As I'm stuck at my parents house this weekend I've been playing my old PS2. Earlier I was playing Devil May Cry and God Of War. Good times!

Never played a R&C game, barely played any Jak & Daxter/Jak games...I was a late PS2 owner. I'm still experiencing a lot of things for the first time.

I wouldn't exactly call this old, but i am going back through Red Dead Redemption.

On a slighty older note, i'm playing through Pokemon Leaf Green again, with a party so far consisting of a Bulbasaur, Pidgey, Mankey, a Pikachu, and a Beedrill which i am considering boxing as it's terrible.

Super Castlevania IV to tide me over until Lords of Shadow drops in price.

You might know SCIV as the Castlevania game with the best rendition of Bloody Tears. You know it's true.
It also introduced Simon's Theme. That song gives me a total Eargasm.
To me it's a toss up which soundtrack is the best: Super Castlevania IV or Symphony of the Night

As to games that I've replayed, I'll pop in Symphony every so often. I'm working on FF8 now, not as a replay but as a game I've had since it first came out and never passed. It's the oldest game I currently own that I haven't passed. I know it's broken but I've been enlightened by the "Squall's Dead" theory so I'm playing through just to see if it's true.
I've actually been on a severe Castlevania binge recently. I'm playing Symphony of the Night (just made it to the inverted Castle) and Super Castlevania IV (just got past the clock tower.) Castlevania is a fantastic series of games. I'm surprised that It took me so long to get to them! I gotta say, I do have a lot of remixes from SCIV and SOTN on my iPod now... I hear the little reprise of Simon's Theme when you beat a level in my head whenever I do anything triumphant. What a great game.

This game had a phenomenal soundtrack period. My favourite is Forest of Monsters.
Rather ashamed to say I never played it all the way through. V.V
*Gasp!* Really? Well, you ought to get on that :p!

Personally, it may very well be my favourite in the series. Come to think of it, I sorta wanna replay it now ~_^

To reply to the main point of the topic though, I'm playing Wild Arms at the moment.

Killzone (the first one) on my PS2 and Metal Gear Solid on PS1. They are two games that are great no matter how many times I play through them. Plus Metal Gear solid gives you the choices that effect your gear and such later on, so that is pretty cool. Oh, and an old game called Star Wars Demolition. That games is the bomb, although i dont think many people played it.

From time to time I play original fallouts (that is FO1 and FO2), Planescape: Torment, Half-Life, System Shocks (if Win7 is in the right mood) and (but that's not really an old game) Vampire: the Masquerade - Bloodlines.

I was playing the Darkwing Duck NES game the other day through an online emulator thingy, which inspired me to look for my new avatar.
Never played the game before though, so it's not really replaying it.

But unless you count Assassin's Creed II and Modern Warfare 2 as "old games", I haven't recently been replaying anything.

...This post has been rendered invalid in terms of the original question. Yay!

frankly thats all i play now; i got ff7 and ff8 on PC to replay, i replay baldurs gate 1 and 2, gamecube games, star fox 64, just got system shock 2 again and am working on getting it to work, will probably try to find dues ex after that...

looking for used xbox versions of beyond good & evil and psychonauts, looking forward to that commodore64 RPG theyre about to finally release... until the gaming industry gets its shit back together and starts making games for gamers and not children and housewives again, im more than happy to surround myself with old favorites that still entertain me 100x more than CoD ever will.

I do this all the time, thank you digital game play.

Last 'old game' I played was Masters of Orion 2.
Great game.

Just downloaded Twisted Metal: Head-On from the PSN store for my PSP. Not in preparation of anything in particular, it's just cheap enough ($9.99) and I had some serious road rage after getting stuck in traffic this afternoon. I work at a communications company affiliated with Sony, so I guess I had an unfair advantage in flipping through an index of titles to download though.

Vampire the Maquerade: Bloodlines.

Going through a run right now with my Malkavian, I can't really play with any other character because of how hilarious the dialogue is...

Stop sign: ...

Malk: No, You stop.

Stop sign: ...

Malk: YOU STOP!

Stop sign: ...

Malk: AHHH STOP!

Stop sign: ...

Malk: You've made a powerful enemy this day, sign.
Ah. Much fun to be had.

My first character was a Malk. My friend had never rolled one and had no idea what I was talking about half the time. Then he came over and watched me play and was shocked at the difference.

But sadly, every other race is boring when you've been a Malk. More sane maybe, but boring.

ON TOPIC: Not at the moment, but am considering playing the first 2 fallout's since I beat New Vegas and they are for cheap on steam. Maybe.
