I was talking with @auth and @tommy2118 about starting a retro gaming category, but there’s no clear definition of retro games. My usual measurement is that if it’s 2 console generations back, it’s retro considering the average time between consoles for major companies is 7 years. This would put retro gaming (for consoles, at least) at PS2 games and earlier. For PC, it would be pre-2005 releases.
What does everyone think about starting a new category? If it’s a good idea, how about the cut-off point? Nintendo handhelds may not quite fit in that definition since they tend to make only minor changes to their systems rather than release a completely new set of hardware. The DS, for example, was released in 2004 but many versions were released afterwards.
