They don't make 'em like they used to

Been playing Lost Vikings on the amiga emulator for a while now. That's a quality game. Lots of games before the introduction of the first person shooter were quality games. But now everybody has to have glitzy effects and opengl. Not that I'm helping, the game I'm planning is OGL based, too :P But when was the last time anyone made a good sidescroller, Jazz Jackrabbit 2?

If the gods smile upon the landfish, the Indrema will be blessed with a god-like sidescroller xmas of '01.

Hmm... Yes... Lost Vikings... I remember that game. I used to play it a lot on my brother's 386. It indeed was quite good... Even though a bit frustrating and repetive. Anyway, it really sucks that people rarely make games like that anymore.. *sigh* And it looks like no gamehouse is going to take a risk and make a good and original game with 2D graphics... Hmm...

What a coincidence. I've been having an urge to DL jazz jackrabbit a lot lately.
