its been said many times but back in the days they concentrated more on the engine and story than they did on graphics and market share.

Yup I can remember much more classics from back then I can say about today, more focus on story, lots of innovation, willing to take risks with the way a game went, not so much worry on graphics.

Well you must know that it's really hard to play every game that comes out. I still haven't played half the old games I'd like to (some I even downloaded now, but hadn't had the time to play). Let alone can I play most of the new games.
So I'm wondering that there are dozens of great new games and tousands of great old games (well - the time period 80's 90's is 20 years - after 2000 is only 5 years).

I think the answer depends a lot on the type of game you prefer. In general older games did seem to concentrate more on interesting gameplay, whereas eye-catching visuals are emphasized more today (partly because current technology means that they can be). I really enjoy combat flightsims, and that's one genre that I consider to have improved vastly over the past 20 years, because modern computers have the power to model flight and damage characteristics far more accurately than those of 20 years ago. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I can't answer the question!

I don't have any preferences, I like both of them. Everything is changing, games or no exception. New games are just different than the old ones, but I don't think they are worse.

Newer games tend to put so much into the way it looks that actual gameplay plummits. Give me a 90's game anyday.
