I'd say any 8-bit stuff is now retro and anything before that would be vintage. It could be that I'm getting old, but the 16-bit days don't feel retro to me yet.

I suppose anything before the generation prior to the current one is retro gaming to me. So in terms of Nintendo handhelds, anything GBA or previous, etc.

I make Pixel Art on occasion.

Well if you look at the fact the 3DS and Vita use flash carts then you are correct, cartridge gaming is a thing of the past.

Personally I'm not too fussed on the what is/what isn't retro thing. It all depends on the gamer really. If you are 18 now then you were around 7 when the PS2 game out but if you are 32 like me then you were playing NES and C64 when you were 7.

Any thing that's a non current console I would consider retro, perhaps not the Wii yet as games are still being released for it but the likes of the first Xbox, the ps2 and the GameCube are all now retro to me.

If you can't to into Game or HMV to buy a brand new game for the console then it's retro in my eyes. (I say brand new because I know Game do sell pre-owned games)

If you have to go to eBay to buy it then it's retro

Nothing beyond the 16-bit era(Although 8-bits feels far more Retro than 16), and Nothing that's made of Polygons. :p

Technically, disc-based media is pretty old as well. The first music CDs came out around the same time as the NES. All that's happened since then are advances for increasing storage space.

God, guns, and guts made America; let's keep all three.

It's a totally arbitrary line, but I generally consider anything more than one console/handheld generation back to be "retro".

For me it depends on how dated the graphics are. For consoles, I wouldn't consider anything past the N64/PS1 era to be retro. As for handhelds, I would consider anything before the DS/PSP era to be retro.

I would consider anything before GCN to be retro, but even DS is starting to show its age IMO.
