Does anyone even play old-school games anymore?

I tried to come up with a good answer to this question that I asked myself. It seems to me that even though there were many great games created and presented on RPGMaker.net, none of them don't ever get the credit they deserve. And the sad part is that they are all free downloads available to anyone! I've played many games on this site that are far more entertaining than any modern RPG that we wasted $60+ bucks for. I guess in the end it's what the modern gamers want. I've been a modern gamer for over 20 years and I still say that old-school is the best. Maybe in the eyes of those who don't see it like I do; maybe, I'm just another grumpy old gamer. But at least the games that I play have heart, not sell-out bull shit. To be honest, I don't know why I even posted this random blog. I really don't know. The end.

That's why I'm here on this site, so that I can get games that actually have substance.

Most of the old school games I've played here used "old school" as an excuse for lazy or downright bad game design.

I know that feeling. :(
Well... sadly when, per example, I think about "old-school" gaming, first I think is about getting my old FinalFantasyLegends, or the little DragonWarrior III. Or even all that SNES games that I haven't concluded ahah!
But yeah, I like to play the oldies from the RPG Making community. Sometimes there's a very unbalanced emphasis regarding the normal aspects of a game (like poor graphics and mapping or that stuff), but they get to be fun, maybe because they're simple and not overloaded with useless stuff (LONG CGIs and animations).

But not all new games are that bad,

I think what I miss most about the glory days of NES, SNES, and PS1 were the classic soundtracks that inspired those to play a game even if the game itself was bad. There are many great soundtracks with today's games, but, it seems like most of them all sound like multi-million dollar blockbuster movies, not a video game. It's hard for a game to stand out to me if it all sounds the same. Oh well! I'm still a slave to the games!

PS. I don't think you need to consider this an "old school" game or a "tribute to the RTP" just because it uses RTP. There are a lot of unique things about it and it stands as a game in its own right.
I hear ya. I only used that line incase some people were wondering why the graphics weren't up to par.
