      It was babby's first ow the edge anime back in the day, otherwise it was stupid. The manga while different wasnt much better. The anime didnt adapt a few things like meat tanks made out of elf bodies or a singer girl whose entire purpose was to wear diapers and piss herself.

      The writer is currently working on an isekai manga called Parallel Paradise where mc is the only male in the world full of women and his touch makes them all piss themselves and cum.
      The writer definitely a sadistic pissgay.

        He also worked on a pseudo-sequel with Brynhildr which had girls turn into alien goo paste.

          Parallel Paradise also has that, and now that I remember, so does Elfen lied. That's just his thing I guess.

        Holy shit, I had completely forgotten about Parallel Paradise and Brynhildr but I read those many years ago. So Parallel Paradise is still ongoing? I read all the available chapters and then dropped it. I don't remember anything about it apart from the MC shaking hands with girls and them pissing themselves.

          26 volumes and still going. No idea where though since I'm about halfway into it and it looks like they are about to fight the big bad to release the 20 year curse already, but there's still 13 volumes to go.
          To be honest with you the whole thing is just porn with a plot but the sheer fact that its isekai slop that isnt just 30 chapters out and on hiatus keeps me reading.

    The SNES was released in 1990, and was considered retro by the time the PS2 came out in 2000.

    The PS4 was released nearly 12 years ago.

      Yeah but there's a significant difference between SNES and PS2. There's a massive difference even between SNES and PS1. The best era for gaming was 1995-2005 just purely due to the rapid advancement in graphics/engines etc.

        I too was wondering. I suppose they're conceptualizing Lucy as an SCP there. It's not like scp exactly invented weird science horror, too, but it did normify it a little in some ways.

    I don't think anything past PS2 will ever be considered retro in general sense. Mostly because seeing realistic grafix in HD alongside pixel platformers is silly. And the newer consoles don't seem to have the lasting impact of 90s/early 2000s classics, so I doubt that there will be much interest in those games some 10 years later.

    The PS4 now being older than the SNES by the time the PS2 was out just shows that gaming has been stagnating for over a decade.

      Game takes longer to develop plus publishers hate risk so we all get the same rehash again and again and again.

      Can't wait for Skyrim GOTM Edition on PS6 and games like Dark Souls getting Bluepoint remakes. Same with movies and music. All just rehashed old stuff.

    For something to be retro, it had to be before I was born or a part of my childhood before I turned 12. Specifically in relation to me, not anyone else. Therefore, the PS1/N64/Dreamcast era is the cut off point for retro consoles. PS2/Gamecube/Xbox onwards are not modern but are not retro either, they willl hereon just be known as old. Everything going forward from that, which isn't modern, is also now just 'old'.

    it makes no sense to call the ps4 retro. not a single game on it looks retro. are we just using it as a term to call something old? i thought retro was a style that isn't used anymore.

    i think real retro is when vidya moves onwards to the point where limitations of old system become forgotten, and then what used to be an issue becomes part of the style. I can see how PS3 can be retro to many, at this point we're both on a different level and in different style, but is there even any serious difference between ps4 and PS5 except for resolution/framerate maybe?

    i can't wait for all of ps4/ps5 era to go retro once we'll get vidya engines that build lighting on raytracing first and foremost, and then there will be completely different vibe, different limitations, different results. until then, eh, either it's me getting old or shit barely changed at all between beginning of ps4 era and now

      Kek we traded brown 'n bloom for a neutered version of the first Suicide Squad' s aesthetic.
      >raytracing
      This is wholly subjective but I preferred when lighting was handcrafted to suit the environment's/situation's tone, raytracing makes sense in terms of moving forward in technology but also lets devs be lazy and basically automate lighting.

        >lets devs be lazy and basically automate lighting
        it's not like any kind of light is pretty as long as it's raytraced, setting up scenes the right way will be probably be even more important than before. and that's really all devs do nowadays, next to no one works on their own engine at this point, even nips are using unreal in 2024

    Rather than bloating the term "retro" it would make more sense to divide consoles by generations and use different terms for each.

    Atari and others like Magnavox or Intellivision showed that gaming at home is possible
    The NES and Master System showed that arcade level experiences are possible at home
    The SNES and Megadrive showed that home systems can not only be equal to the arcade but offer titles that surpass the arcade
    The PS1, N64 and Saturn showed us the early capabilities of 3D gaming
    The PS2, Gamecube, Dreamcast and XBOX perfected 3D gaming and standardized it
    The PS3 and 360 made online gaming and digital stores the norm
    The PS4 and XBOX One made liveservice big
    The PS5 and XBOX-S so far are mostly just extensions of the last generation - I guess raytracing and upscalers get introduced here?

      Realism is more retro than purposefully stylized games because devs have been chasing realism since the dawn of vidya. You could make a VR game that looks and feels like actual real life and I would still call it retro.
