I'd buy it, nothing better than playing some old school games to bring back childhood memories.  I'm a sucker when it comes to the steam store, it's like a candy store and so easy to just get a new game.

What would be the ideal USB gamepad for these?

Probably a wired Xbox 360 controller.

I've tried going back and playing some old games as well as watching old cartoons that I loved in the 3rd grade and they never seem to live up to my memories.

I have all those games. I still have my Genesis and every now and then I think to myself I should pull that stuff out and play. I get about 5 minutes into these games and im not having any fun. Back in the box they go and up to the attic.

not to sound rude, but whats the point of going backward and also have to pay for them ?

is it to revive the fun you had from many years ago ?  if so, then it could be a good thing.

but I wonder how well would 8-bit game run on 64-bit OS.. wouldnt the animation be like way too fast that you can't see anything ?

8-bit running on 64-bit would have to be 8 times better, right?!?! lol But these are 16-bit games...so they are only 4 times better. lol

You can underclock a processor. There are programs specifically designed to throttle back a proc, such as slowmo.

Whenever I play old DOS games I use DOSBox, a DOS emulator, and it does a good job of throttling back the proc with just the default settings. 

Also, when I used to have a Gametap sub, I used to play alot of old arcarde and console games(they have alot of SEGA console games), no problems with speed whatsoever. So I doubt the Steam versions will have any issues and will likely have some sort of emulation software with the games to run them properly.

As to the other question - Some people enjoy classics. I still have alot of old games I occasionally re install and GOG.com has been pretty popular selling classics from up to 20 years ago.

 I love Altered Beast and Golded Axe.  Played them both to death in the arcade (and golden axe was on PC for a bit way back when)  Ah, the good ol' days.

I'm pretty sure I still have my Golden Axe floppy disc for the PC. So if I can prove ownership can I get the Steam version for free? :D

Dunno, seems a steep price for games that are 15-20 years old. Maybe $5 for the whole lot, but not $3 a piece. I'd rather spend that money on a good indie game.

LOL, Ecco the Dolphin. I haven't thought about that game in years.

What, no Sonic and Knuckles or Sonic 3, or even better Sonic CD. Sonic 3D was the weakest of the Sonic games for the Genesis.

The end is nigh.. sure.. tell tat to the end of my Missile Launcher...

Shinobi 3 is awesome.  I wonder if these games will be compatible with the 360 controllers though.
