Hey /Vr,

Me and my wife were playing Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy Kong's Quest on our Retron™ 5 the other day and she said it reminded her of games like Shovel Knight and UNDERTALE. She explained how graphics and gameplay were similar and we tried to define what retro is. For her it's style, for me it's age. I think the board should define retro once and for all in a non arbritary manner.

So now that the dust has settled, if we're going by age we should consider six gen retro. Dreamcast is already allowed so we should do the same for GBA and PS2. I mean it's all or nothing, some people would feel the PSX is not retro because it brought cutscenes to gaming, PS2 is no different, it's old enough and its games have already aged, otherwise they wouldn't remake them for modern consoles.

If we're going by style, then we should be able to talk about games like UNDERTALE here, because it's retro styled. I mean look at it on that CRT, it's how me and my wife play it. What do you think?
