    Great point about online gaming history degrading. Perfect Nintendo example: I loved PSO EP 1&2 and 3 and put more time in them than any other game in my life. But now its all for nothing because there are no serves and so many people I played online with that I won’t be able to contact anymore.

    In terms of the collection it seems like a cheap cash in. Whereas the Zelda cube compilation was great because Nintendo was under dog trying use nostalgia to sell the unappreciated cube. I think Nintendo would have made a better compilation if they were doing worse in terms of market share because they would be trying to use nostalgia to sell their console to people who don’t want it or don’t like Nintendo as they much as they did in the past.

    Also just to keep rolling with it…being watched by people… notice some new sites have live streams of them playing games you can watch. Its not just me that sick. :P

      I was thinking about PSO the entire time we were talking about online games being archived.

      Indeed, one of my pastimes on YouTube right now is finding someone doing a Let’s Play of a game and watching it.

        I got so crazy addicted to PSO on the dreamcast. Running around with my chainsaw sword, hacking at everything in my path. Man, I lost my life to that game. I both miss it & am glad to be rid of it. Much like, I would assume, ex-heroin users feel. I can’t play another PS game online now because I fear what would happen if I did. I do play PSU, but not the AotI expansion. Man I miss PSO :(
