It used to be the case, but moving back to them today, performance is a non-issue. If you don't care about real hardware, just about any PC can run games maxed out up until about 2006-2008 and entry level gaming rigs about 2015-2016. That's what moving back to old games means.
Yes, exactly my point, I was talking about current gen modern hardware, not the hardware of that era. Back then I could play anything I want, without any problem, now to play this or that I need to buy this or that, get that DLC, buy that new NVIDIA/AMD gpu... the same thing every year and after every new game version release... I got fed up of this. So I built virtual machines to play my old games in peace (and for the peace of my wallet).

As mentioned before, I hate modern AAA games because they are filled with DLCs, micro transactions, loot boxes, season passes and similar crap. Basically, most games made today are designed to squeeze out as much money as possible from people. In contrast, old games were designed to be fun to play, nothing more.
Agreed. I have an additional reason to hate them (requirements for newer hardware), but Kids playing Fortnite or PUBG or whatever they call it will never know it, because they spend a lot of time (and money) buying skins and stuff inside the game, instead of playing the game itself...
