    I think that's why I prefer playing the old games now. You can pick one up and just play for 30 mins/an evening and then turn it off. None of this having to play for 40-60 repetitive hours to get somewhere. I guess the gaming industry feels the need to make time consuming content since games are so expensive.

    Mario Kart + Super Smash Bros + GoldenEye 007 and 4 controllers is all you needed on the N64.
    Precisely. Nowadays with the cost of games, people expect 20+ hours of single player in addition to some kind of multiplayer and online mode. There's a reason that old, classic games are always people's favourites and it's because they were simple and enjoyable.

    There's something special about having 4 people gather really close to the TV together because your extension cords stopped working that just makes the old games much more personal and emotive.
    In modern games you'll be sat alone playing with people all over the world and although that's an amazing feat, playing face to face with your friends/family and watching their soul shatter as you throw that blue shell? That's what fun is.

    Think it was called Contra in the USA/Japan. It's a good game though. Shooting aliens obviously.

    I've never actually played Golden Axe. Maybe I should buy it off ebay.
    lol i've played contra at my neighbor's place back in the day. Pretty sure we played that in a different console (white color or something)

    Yeah Contra was fun (and a tough) game

    You play GAxe on the iphone as well.

    He'll be playing in the derby one would assume?

    It was all Origi to be honest.
    Great play from the lad and he actually got his head up to lay it off to Lallana for the easy finish.

    As usual we look decent going forward but shoddy at the back. That left side being exposed between Ibe/Gomez.

    Lallana looks good - be interesting to see his stats when he plays with/without Coutinho. I need Lallana needs to be involved/central to play to get the best out of him but when Coutinho is in the side, he's obviously the main man.

    We're only good going forward because we're against a second-rate team. Which makes it even worse when we can't even beat them.

    That's because Ibe just refuses to defend. He's our worst player on a consistent basis.

    Lallana is the guy who always just pops up with a goal when you're struggling but in general he isn't quite good enough for our first team in my opinion. Having Coutinho is a real problem for him because there's no way we're gonna move our best player out of his optimal area and Lallana isn't very good if he isn't more central.

    Origi is bloody awful up front.

    Couldn't do much more with the second chance but Allen put him through on goal for the first - can't be missing those.
    Had a lovely assist to Lallana but he really isn't a "striker". Not like Sturridge or Benteke are.

    What a miss from Lallana.

    How can you take a first touch that perfect and then miss such a sitter?

    We would score more goals if we stopped shooting straight at the keeper.
