Retro Video Games

Recommended Posts

What are your favourites? Also, what's even considered to be a "retro" game these days?

 

I am pretty fond of the original Harvest Moon game for the Gameboy Advance.

Also, I just need to share the most hilarious box art I've seen in months:

Anything pre-1995 is a pretty good contender for "retro" games. I'd probably call 1995-2005 "classic" games.

My favorite retro game is probably Secret of Mana. I don't play many retro games, so it's not like i have a very broad list to pick a favorite from.

If we're going by this criteria, I'm much more fond of "classic" than "retro", though I still have a fondness for fixed shoot 'em ups, like Galaga and Phoenix

I agree. I find that true "retro" games are just difficult for me to immerse myself in compared to "classic" games. The only 100%-retro title I have played is the 1980 game "Rogue" and it was pretty difficult for me to get into.
