How old is retro?

I almost always have a game of FFVII going. Being someone who's owned consoles since the Odyssey, I don't really consider anything since the advent of 3D graphics to be retro. Frogger, Asteroids, Space Invaders... They're retro.

I've been playing my Track and Field arcade a bit lately. Also quite a bit of Gyruss and Joust as well.

I've been out of the retro gaming lately, having picked up a lot of design jobs recently and having so little spare time (I'm also coaching both of my sons' little league teams! ). My best pick-up-and-play game is still Tetris, though. I mean I love just firing up the old PC and playing the classic NES emulator for a bit. I still have a game save of Zelda that I need to complete. I'm on the last underworld level and need to defeat Gannon. A close second for me is SFII on the SNES.

Oh come on, Final Fantasy X is totally retro, it's what now, 10 years old?
RIP Navster, you were someone I considered a friend and BD.com will always remember you.

I don't know. 10 years isn't that old. I mean, it (FFX) was only the generation prior to the one we're in right now. I would hardly call that retro. Like I said above, I'm presonally drawing the retro line as being anything prior to the advent of 3D graphics... Basically anything before the 32-bit era.

My most anticipated game off all time, I will never forget when the SF2 preview came out in the Nintendo Power Mag me and my friends would just stare at it.

This is probably true for me, too. I remember this day like it was yesterday. It's hard to believe that was nearly 20 years ago. Talk about a timeless game. Today's youngsters just have no idea how awesome this game is. The release of this game to SNES basically signified the end of my arcade career, as that was the game I played the most when I went to the arcade; in fact I went to the arcade JUST to play that game. Seriously epic times there. I know "epic" gets thrown around a lot these days, but this game meets the criteria of epicness in every imaginable sense.

Yea there was a 7-Eleven down the street from me and when they got that SF2 arcade machine in we were there EVERYDAY during the summer. I don't even want to image how many quarters we spent... But once it came out for the SNES OMG we didn't have to go the crummy 7-eleven anymore...

I'm playing the actual games. While everything prior to the original Playstation is packed away, everything from the PSone to the present is sitting on my shelves. That would include...

Playstation
PS2
PS3

Xbox
360

Dreamcast

Jaguar

Gamecube
Wii

So in all actuallity (by my own standards), I'm not playing any "retro" games right now, unless you count what's on Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection.
