[spoiler][/spoiler]Ok recently I was in a Gauntlet mood, so I went to play my copy of the game. I quickly found that both it, and Dark Legacy, no longer worked, I set out on an epic quest to find new copies of both of the games. Not only did I manage to find new copies of both games for a decent price, I also found a copy of Gauntlet Seven Sorrows. Since I hadn't played Seven Sorrows yet, I popped it in and...this sums up what I ran into (I apologize for the sound quality, I had to jury rig a mic):

After posting that tirade, I finally calmed down enough to replay the original Gauntlet, then moved on to Dark Legacy. I quickly found that neither of them was nearly as fun as I remembered. Did the Gauntlet series really age that poorly, or is it just me?

I played Gauntlet on the PSP (Midway Arcade Treasures) for the first time. I don't like it at all.

Yeah they haven't aged as well as other games from back then but I find them still enjoyable.

I remember Gauntlet in the arcades (a place where you had to drive/walk to play video games). It sucked my quarters bad, and then I had it on the NES and then...that was it. It seemed like over the decades a bunch of games were inspired by this epic dungeon crawler.
