Old RPGs… which ones?

Thank you, it's nice to learn your opinions. I don't actually know any gamers in RL, much less those who played games *that* old.
As far as I understand all of you, the issue lies with the new approach to creating games. They're made easier so that gamers would not feel frustrated. On a blog, I believe it was the crpgaddict blog mentioned in this thread, I read that ealier some game developers took pride in their games being insanely difficult. So the approach was definitely different, I can't imagine developers being proud of that now.
But why? Is people's psychology different nowadays? I refuse to believe it, it almost sounds like earlier there were much less people interested in gaming and those were mostly hardcore fans of it, and nowadays so many people play that the majority are "casual" (bad word, it sounds degrading) gamers.
P.S. Meanwhile I finally managed to make Pool of Radiance work on my PC, yay! Ultima IV will have to wait its turn, it's way too complicated to figure out, Pool is intuitively accessible.
