Most of you would rather buy a new video game than a remastered old game. I also prefer new experiences to nostalgia that's been spruced up a bit, but I have a soft spot for replaying an old favorite game in high definition. I enjoy Sony's revamped classics line and I've rented a few of Nintendo's New Play Control titles for the Wii, but anymore I tend to split my gaming between both old and new with the new titles going to the PlayStation 3 and older titles landing on the Nintendo 3DS via its Virtual Console service. Later this month, however, that'll flip to New Super Mario Bros. 2 on the 3DS and the Ratchet and Clank Collection on the PS3. So while I prefer buying new original games, but actual habits are all over the place.
