You don't even consider the Nintendo 64 retro?

I bought F-Zero GX and Viewtiful Joe for the Gamecube.

F-Zero GX is amazing IMO! I still have my old game save files with all my created vehicles, and all tracks unlocked, etc.

I don't.
Anything zipping into the 3D polygon realm of video gaming to me just doesn't seem Retro.
Especially the GCN. When a lot of people think retro, they automatically think 'sprites' or those
that were born a lot earlier in the game. But i guess for many it's just a matter of what you grew up with.

Oh man, GX is personally one of my least favorite videogames of all time.
It just felt completely lifeless and dismal compared to the previous F-Zero games and it was quite obvious
NIntendo wasn't behind this outing. Even the King of koopa's 'Shingeru Miyamoto' himself admitted that he didn't like it.

I dig the SNES orginal and F-Zero X, but GX just leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. When it comes to Nintendo sequals,
i can't stand the following > F-Zero GX, Wario Land 3 and LOZ: Wind Waker.

Thats pretty much it when it comes to retro. It all depends on how old you are compared to the thing you are describing as retro. Heck I am sure that my mom and dad's generation consider big band music retro where as I would consider 50s rock retro.

But I agree with you Wavester I find it hard to consider N64 retro and now with the Wii U out find it even harder to consider Gamecube retro lol.

@Waveboy: and @Tasuki: I agree; the systems a person grew up playing determines what they consider as Retro. I received an Atari 2600 on my 10th ('81) birthday and an NES in '87. However, this is just my opinion which is no more valid than anyone else's.

Hmm, well I hope I enjoy it more than you did, especially since I loved Wind Waker

You probably will. I have no idea how anyone can call F-Zero GX "Lifeless and dismal." Sure, it's freakin' hard as hell, and the music sucks, but it still has plenty of personality, charm, and overall fun-factor.

Yay! Anyways, I'm also going to buy Metroid Prime since I want to catch up on a lot of high-praised GC games.

Just picked up a Sega Saturn with 2 controllers, 3 games (Virtua Cop, Virtua Fighter 2, Daytona USA) and an original XBox w/ 2 controllers all for 30 bucks. I was just going to sell the XBox since I have one but it turns out is modded and has tons of games on it so I will have 2 XBox's now haha. I love my local thrift store. The Saturn works great, going to order the RAM cart and I will look for more games while hitting the yard sale circuit this summer.

Now owned: NES, SNES (x2, both the original and mini version), N64, GameCube (w/ GBA player), Wii (x2, both models), Wii U (black), PS2, XBox (x2), Sega Genesis, Sega Saturn (yeahhhh boyyyy) <---Flavor Flav sound effect

Most wanted: Turbo Grafx 16, with CD player would be nice... and Sega Master System. Oh and NEO GEO but that is just a dream right now....
