or sometimes a great game can get a terrible sequel and then everyone denies that the sequel exists? you know, like Tales of Symphonia.

Chrono Cross is so good though. I really want to get around to finishing it.

Probably means it's terrible as a sequel, and it definitely isn't a perfect sequel. Without Toriyama's art or the inclusion of at least one main character in a prominent role from Chrono Trigger (Magus was planned to play a bigger role and actually be Guile), it just feels too different. It'd have been better served just being it's own thing because it doesn't borrow much from CT anyway.

Some of the dialogue in TOS is really bad.

"NO MORE BLAH BLAH BLAH!".

"BRAIN AND BRAIN WHAT IS BRAIN?"

Virtually everything from the 60's is bad. I think the 70's has some movies that still good up really well though.

Name one really good movie from the 60's or earlier that holds up perfectly today. Pro tip, if it's black and white it's automatically disqualified.

If that's like other Hitchcock stuff (or every other movie of the 50's) then it's got a lot of bad acting. I notice tons of older movie actors behave like they're in a play, it's a specific type of acting that just doesn't gel with me. Feels very "hay im acting" to me. Which, I mean, is fine for an actual play I guess, but not really a movie.

if you're gonna compare black-and-white films/color films to magnavox odyssey/more modern consoles then why even bother arguing

Isn't is a fair comparison though? At the very least the visual fidelity of old film is comparable to that of old games. The look of a game is important, and that goes for a film too. Maybe the gameplay can still hold up but old games are gonna look like crap. I'm not going to pretend King Kong's goofy looking special effects aren't immersion annihilating and give it a pass just because it's old. If people want to it's fine but that doesn't mean they hold up.
