When does a game become classic/retro?

I consider retro to be 16 bit or older. I consider the PS1/2 to be modern in many ways. There is no right or wrong though.

Tabletop vectrex like racing game?

Yes, it looked a lot like that. But a tabletop version. I could be remembering wrong though this was

Tabletop vectrex like racing game?

I remember when I was a kid seeing a tabletop vectrex like racing game. It was a one game only device like the game & watch games. It had a black background and looked like you was racing at night. It had a joystick and was in a smallish cabinet.<br /><br />Does anyone have an idea what it's cal...

Why has there been no crash like in 1983

I kind of feel like line Jon does. Except for the fact that for local multi player the Wii U is really starting to win me over. Having only bought 2600 and Megadrive games recently Toads Tresures tracker makes me think that it's possible to still have short playable fun games on a modern console.

2015/1/10: Wii U: Hyrule Warriors, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

I'm so glad vgc gave the reviews the scores that he did. He have them the scores that I would give them. It's sad and annoying to see everyone just giving poplar games high scores because it's the easy option.

I think they will be great games of there your types of games though.

Why has there been no crash like in 1983

I think Scotland has got it right. Although as has already been mentioned I think the 1983 crash was a suspected crash rather than anything more. People seem to buy games consoles such as the PS4 and Xbox One just because it's seems like a popular thing to own rather than in my childhood gamers wher...

How Old Is Retro?

I would say anything 25 years or older is truly classic as well. There has to be a significant difference in the look of the games due to hardware. Gaming has been very samey for many years now.

Why is the PS4 selling so well?

Hmm, yes maybe people just like the familiarity like Critic said. I guess I can understand that way of thinking.

That said this generation just seems to lack any kind of unique design or gaming flare to really make me pay attention.

Nitro Bike (Wii)

I bought Crus'in after reading the review here. It's a very good game IMO. I like the cheesy arcade style action. This maybe similar I'm guessing.
