      You're the only one coping, OP
      To put that into persoective, Space Invaders was as old as the PS2 is now when the PS2 released

      It's about technology not time, the difference between a PS2 game and PS5 is way less than a PS2 and an Atari game
      I'd say this gen is the absolute cut off for "retro" and even that's kind of a stretch

        I personally would definitely call ps3, wii, and Xbox360 retro at this point. And even if you don't consider them retro now, it will be retro in 10 years max

          Okay, this is a stretch. Give it another 5 years and new console generation and we're good, but 360/PS3/Wii were still getting games up until like 2018.

            PS2 got PES/FIFA 14 and Ganker considers it retro. PC got Crysis before their software cut-off. The platypus is basically a mammal that lays eggs. There's always an exception to the rule and it doesn't change the end result.

      retro is an imitation of classic styles, old consoles cannot be retro unless as when released they are intended to recreate classic styles. PS2 is not retro, it is a classic console.

            Definition of retro:
            Involving, relating to, or reminiscent of an earlier time.
            >relating to an earlier time
            A console from 22 years ago is somehow not related to an earlier time?

          "Classical Music" refers to a specific genre and era of music, not "music from hundreds of years ago." in general In the year 2300 we aren't going to start calling Devo "Classcal", although they'll be as old as that point as classical music is to use now. Likewise, "Retro games" referes to a specific type and era of video game, it's not a shifting window of anything older than X years. PS2 games weren't Retro in 2002, so they shouldn't be considered Retro in 2012, 2022, 2032, or any other year.

            The Nintendo 64 wasn't considered retro in 1998 but it's considered retro now. Everything before 2008 is retro because that's when the 20th century officially ended when the Great Recession happened and China took America's spot as the dominant superpower. This means that, yes, even the PS3 is retro.

                The reason I start the 20th century at 1898 is because that's when America became a world power after they won the Spanish-American War, which kicked off the American Century. According to Brad DeLong's new book Slouching Towards Utopia, the Long 20th Century is 1870-2010. I haven't read the book yet, but apparently he has an economic reason for that. I define it more geopolitically, which is why I think 1898-2007 is the best span, since those 110 years are when America was at its height. I will say that 2008-2009 did have some 20th century elements to it, but late 2009 onwards is 100% 21st century.

          Sure, Sega was already battered from the whole 32X/Saturn fiasco (pissed off devs due to forcing them to port everything from 32X to Saturn, pissed off retailers because they favored some over others, pissed off people because low stock, got beaten by Sony in price). However, they could still have recovered. Their further fuckups were the last nail in their coffin.

    Whether you consider it retro or not, 6th gen is at least the cutoff point to an era. With each generation, developers were able to make more and more impressive games while working within the technical limitations of consoles of the era. 5th gen was close, but 6th gen is definitely the point where the technology was finally available for developers to adequately realize their vision (many of which had learned fundamental skills from years of working with limitations). Outside of games that pushed the hardware from a gameplay perspective, games started putting more and more emphasis on graphics. Another distinction is the prevalence of online, though that aspect isn't as cut and dry.

    I think 7th gen games could be considered retro in the not too distant future, but I still think it's of another era (in the sense that 1st and 2nd gen games could be considered another era from the more "traditional" retro range of 3rd-5th gen).

    Atari 2600 was not retro when PS2 launched because it was only 22 and half years old then. And PS2 is now 22 and half years old.

    PS2 is retro. It's now as old as Atari 2600 was when it launched. Or was Atari 2600 not retro in 2000?
