INTRODUCTION

Hello DDO and welcome to yet another example of how I only debate subjects with little to no academic value!

YES, todays topic will be "Modern Games are superior to Classic Games" and is a result of this thread:
http://www.debate.org...

DEFINITIONS

"MODERN GAMES" will be defined as games existing within the current generation of consoles (PS3, XBOX360, Wii, ect) as well as PC games released in the past 5 years.

"CLASSIC GAMES" will be defined as games that have been released during or prior to the Super Nintendo/Sega Genesis generation. PC Games must be released during or prior to 1994 (the year the Playstation was released) to qualify as classic under this definition.

"SUPERIOR" will be defined subjectively by the voter, based on the arguments presented by either debater.

If you wish to tinker with the definitions, please say so in the comments before accepting. Allowing just one more generation of consoles to fall within the "Classic" definition will make this debate unwinnable for me (at least if I was debating myself), so Playstation/N64 games will definitely not be allowed.

RULES

-No overt semantics (that means no trolling me by redefining "superior" to "older" or such shiznit. If I have made some awful error, you may exploit it (but I try to make very thorough first rounds to avoid this).

-Round one will be only for definitions and acceptance. No arguments will be made until round two.

-Forfeits will count only against a debaters conduct, unless arguments are dropped as a result of said forfeit. Equal numbers of forfeits should be treated as equally bad conduct.

-Debaters share the burden of proof. My opponent may not simply rebutt my arguments and expect to win. He must show that Classic Games are superior just as I must show Modern Games are superior.

That awkward moment where I thought TV's avatar was a thumbs up bent at a funny angle. But no, it's a cat, laughing at my failure.

Anyway, I don't know what you guys are complaining about. This is, actually, a pretty fair resolution. There are good arguments for both sides, and good ground for both sides. It's ultimately going to come down to what attributes make a game superior, but I won't give any arguments for either side.

"'SUPERIOR' will be defined subjectively by the voter, based on the arguments presented by either debater."

Trust me, I can work with that.

bossy; when this debate is over will you do the same debate with me except I'll go Con and you can go Pro?

@TV You are missing the fact that the tech was very limited, so you would outright win on some points.

whyt3nn3rdy:
Get a grip. I'm allowed ONE generation of consoles or around 5 years of games compared to almost the entire history of games... How is that 'limiting'?

Where are my old school gamers at?

@Cody: Would that have worked? I thought by defining what I meant by superior, I would avoid such tish-tosh.

You limit the Classic side WAY too much. I would take this if not for that fact.
