How old does a game have to be for it to be considered retro?

these days, if yer going by indy game companies with all this faux retro in it, then on release date.

And yes, he is (usually) always right, and he is (almost) the sexiest gamer out there (not counting me) ;)

Them funny indie critters, constantly stealing ideas from classic franchises and layering them in cheap Flash visuals.

That, or using completely fake-looking faux 8-Bit style, over and over and over and over.

Tell me about it. These no-name indie devs are just flat out lazy and use visual retro asthetics to lour in the nostalgia nerds. It's a lot easier to lets say make a short 8-bit or flash animated game these days for the 3DS eShop. Most are uninspired copy cats at the core, with little else to offer other than a new skin. Yet everything(Audio, Visuals, presentation ect) always winds up being inferior to the game they're stealing from.

Shovel Knight is an exception to the rule. It feels like a legit NES game and screams of quality. I guess you could say it's in league with the mighty "Mega Man 9"

Braid is also another one worth checking out.

Ironically I found the sequel easier outside of some spots, despite playing it first. Those "spots" however, were some of the most rediculously frustrating sections I've ever delt with, though.

This would be the number 1 "spot" imo.

I spent hours trying to figure him out, even when you nail down the pattern he still poses one hell of a challenge. Difficulty aside, I didn't find VJ2 quite as enjoyable or as memorable as the first and Synthia i found was a weak addition. Perhaps if i had played VJ2 first then VJ my opnion would be the exact opposite....maybe......Just maybe....Nah VJ is one of the greatest capcom games ever made.....That nobody bought.lol

That could be a contender for longest game title, if you're like the people who could a SNES fighting game's full title "Hey Punk! Are you Tuff E Nuff?"

Although I did save one copy of Viewtiful Joe from Best Buy's junk bin, I suppose it's not a real rescue until it gets played?
I'm not sure if this one copy of Nights Wii I didn't buy from them deserved its fate of being bound to two Barbie games, I think it was.

Got a complete copy of the 3 1/2" floppy version of SimFarm for $3 at Goodwill today. Always a fan of the SimCity games, but I'm not sure if this is any good.

Grabbed Crystalis and Little Nemo for the NES. Always wanted these ones. Heck, they were the reason I got an NES. Didn't cost me that much, either.

Only NES games I need still are Metal Storm (good luck with that), Contra (available, but always expensive), and maybe a licensed game like Darwing Duck or something like that...would also be nice if I could play Kid Dracula, but I don't want to get a Famicom just for that...

Finally got an english Yoshi's Island along with Super Bomberman (just beat it a while ago) for the SNES and Galactic Pinball for the Virtual Boy. Had to give away an ultra rare game though so I could get money but at least I got a few gems along with it. Totally worth it.

The Rescue Rangers games on the NES are classics. I highly recommend them.

Gave away an ultra-rare game for Yoshi's Island? Hope it wasn't a good game at least.
(YI's a good game and it's good you're playing the original version but those are all reasonably common games)

Kid Dracula only had one place doing repros, and they discontinued it years ago. I couldn't even find one on eBay, and I betcha if I did it would be expensive...

It was Space Invaders Virtual Collection for the virtual boy in CIB condition. I was also given a considerable amount of money so I'm good. I needed it anyway.
