By the shit above, it means it used to be the best.
No pc or current console gameplay can top on old consoles imo, just because now they focus on graphics while gameplay is the same style in every game
Didn't saw "the" my bad. I was never into games like mario, zelda, sonic, pokemon etc.
I prefer realistic games like witcher 3, forza horizon 4 etc.
Games on consoles are usually for casual players who play from time to time and are not serious about it.
