Retro is currently Pong / Atari (Golden Age) to Saturn / PlayStation / N64 (Silver Age). An exception is made for Dreamcast because it was released during the 32 bit era and left the market so quickly.

Generally a "retro" product must be at least 15 years old.

Not really. Even a port on a newer console shouldn't allowed if it's on a console released after 1999.

No-one gave a fuck either until people figured out they could make threads about newer games under the pretense of "it's a port". There was a thread about some 2010 pacman remake on steam which people were defending because "pacman is retro, right?".

1. gba was released 2001, three years after dreamcast('98)
2. its sixth gen handheld
3. unlike dreamcast it didnt die quickly, it still got games way after DS came out(2008, DS came out in 2004)
4. generally its not considered to be retro handheld, even though it has tons of snes/genesis ports(by that logic other sixth and later gen consoles are "retro" too)

Not retro.

>> No.2754528

This game was trash.

>> No.2754540


For me "retro" is not a time period but more the aesthetic of those old games, I see the first Atari pixels, 8 bit, 16 bit and low polygon stuff like the N64 and PS1 as retro. More modern systems will never be "retro" Personally I wouldn't see the Dreamcast as retro but it slipped through because its date. Though the time still has a meaning but only in context, like a modern indie game made to look like this style would not be retro, but imitating retro.
Now since the GBA is like a better SNES but not close to an N64 and therefore looks not much different than emulating the SNES on a handheld I would see it fitting as retro.
People are worried that this would open Pandora's box though as it breaks the magical 2000- barrier and soon people come with "How about the PS2? etc.
After this definition that is pretty much no danger, the PS2 will NEVER be retro, its graphics will look dated but still modern and more realistic. I guess they will have to find a new word for these neo-retro systems in the future.

tl,dr: GBA OK imho fam

You can't do this in the port of Doom 2 but it makes up for it by being a very faithful port, as opposed to the first which cuts like 30-40% of the original content (it cuts the spidermind and cyberdemon, as well as their levels, the final level is replaced with E2M9)

When people talk about classical music nowadays, they still talk about Mozart or Beethoven. The Beatles or Elvis are not classical music even though an arbitrary amount of time has passed since they performed. That's because classical music isn't defined by how long ago it was composed, but rather by a certain underlying zeitgeist, conventions and philosophies that shaped music in a certain period.

It's exactly the same case with retro video games. When you ask "WHY DOESN'T /VR/ WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE ORIGINAL HALO? IT'S PRETTY OLD", you're doing the equivalent of barging in on a classical music club and asking why don't they want to talk about The Ramones even though it's been 40 years already.

Yeah, classical music is a genre. It's called classical music because it has it's own rules, it's not because it's supposed to be old. You're right about it. But retro is a relative term, it changes and evolves as time passes unlike your example. The retro of today wasn't retro 10 years ago, etc.

I told you faggots when they started allowing dreamcast, that it would be a slippery slope.

absolutely NO good will come of allowing GBA. it will just bring a new influx of underage faggots from /v/

>> No.2757054

I argued against allowing an exception to the rules just for the DC, since I knew it would turn into people whining for even newer shit to be allowed.

AND LOOK WHAT HAPPENED! Fucking called it.

Of course, I'll never get an apology from the dreamcast fags who said "Hur dur that's slippery slope argument, it'll never happen!" They were selfish then in wanting special snowflake status, and they are selfish now in not admitting they are causing problems.

The DC fags on this board make me wish I never owned a DC.

>> No.2757440

DC fag here.

We knew that people would complain about them not being allowed. Partially because they were allready complaining before the sticky was changed to allow the DC. But mainly because the actuall issue was that we wanted to either:
>A. remove the 1999 rule for consoles, and just have the cut off be 5th gen
>B. remove the 5th gen rule and have the cutoff be 1999
But unfortunately the mods did neither of those things, and now we still have the issue of contradictory rules that give gba/ps2/gamecube/whatever fags a foothold to shitpost. Even if that foothold is not a valid one, since the DC was the ONLY system to fall into that grey area.

Regardless, it wasn't that we said it would lead to them complaining, but that it wouldn't lead to them being allowed. Its been what, year and half, two years now? And guess what, they're not allowed yet, just as we predicted.

>> No.2757461

ugh, it should be a rolling 15-to-20-year window of exclusion with exceptions for handhelds that covers a slightly shorter period, maybe 5 years shorter

>since the DC was the ONLY system to fall into that grey area
You mean the console with Gamecube style graphics and online connectivity that set forth pretty much every "next gen" convention is a GREY AREA? Give me a break. The only semi-valid reason for it to be retro is the port argument, which would be just as valid for something like the GBA.

A gen cutoff can't ever be the only criteria for retro in this board because of PC. I agree with >>2757461, the exclusion should roll over depending on the year, and it's absurd to think people are against this. We'll all have a dead board within years at worst and a board for hipsters who want to "discover (overhyped) retro games" at best, we're already both dying and being overrun with e-celeb/"I just started FFVII/CT what am I in for" style threads. That's what happens when you run out of things to talk about. Our board will just grow stagnant and die.

Progressively including years would allow us to talk about 2000 PC games (remember the Sims 1 thread where pepole would STILL go "NOT RETRO"?) which barely even work in modern PCs but are somehow considered modern, hip and forbidden for /vr/.

Or, you know, don't change anything, but don't bitch and moan when /vr/ becomes a dead board for teenage hipsters.

Being realistic, either every 3-4 years there needs to be an update to the consoles accepted, or there needs to be a rolling dateline of "this game is now 15 years old, and we can talk about it."

>> No.2758424

A rolling date is just going to give autists an excude to argue about the exact date, time zones, leap seconds, and other sperg shit. A rolling year is probably easier for people to deal with and more logical than a rolling whenever some faggot updates the sticky.

>> No.2758445

Someone mentioned 15 years as the ground rule for defining what is considered retro.

But what he forgot to say is that it's 15 year from the end of the lifespan of the console.

So PS2 won't be retro until at least 2020.

Nintendo serviced/repaired SNES until sometime between 2005-2010. So I guess the SNES isn't retro because you could still get official service for that system until fairly recently?

> GBA released in 2001, last Licensed Game in 2008

No, we don't need to be discussing games that aren't even 8 years old because you want a console to be retro. Quit it. Besides, PS2 came out before GBA and the last licensed game was released in 2013. This would all defeat the point of this board.

Where's the janitor?

>> No.2758480

According to this alarmingly deranged logic the NES, SNES, GB and GBC aren't retro, and won't be for another couple years. They were all discontinued on 2003, iirc, and services were still provided until fairly later on.

I guess we should be /vr/ - Atari & Commodore 64 now.

/vr/ represents an unchanging era blah blah. If people want to discuss newer stuff they can either petition for a dedicated board or stick to threads on /vg/ and /v/. The biggest problems with /vr/ are the few dedicated trolls who keep pushing for changes and the meek regulars who pander to them.

>> No.2758516

PC games are a special case. It was discussed in some depth in one of the previous troll threads. Treating it like a platform won't work because even PC games released today still use the same architectures as PC games from 20 years ago. Going by OS wouldn't work either, since if you tried hard enough you could probably at least get semi-modern games to run on the likes of Windows 98. Going by year works, but for simplicity it has to be the same year as the console cut-off, otherwise certain people would endlessly point out that "x game released on PC in 2002 is retro, but PS2 released in 2000 is not retro". Give these fuckers an inch and they'll take a hundred fucking miles.

If we can have a near omnipresent thread about fucking CRT tvs then I think it wouldn't hurt to have a GBA general too. It's funny how nobody complains about the thread that has literally nothing to do with video games and where nobody actually talks about games, and the very same people are throwing a little temper tantrum at the mere thought of actually talking about games that are so very slightly newer than their autism allows. Like it or not, the board is stagnating and we could do with some fresh topics of discussion, if even just to piss off the most poisonous elements of this board. If we can talk about fucking televisions here without disruption then we should be able to talk about actual games on the GBA.

Actually, as the rules clearly state, this board is for the discussion of classic or retro games. Not televisions, actual games. Not like it matters anyway, the rules can always be changed. I think /vr/ is an ideal place to talk about GBA games too. Obviously there's not as much interest on the other video game boards for GBA games or really anything from that gen, they're way more concerned with newer games. This board is the of only board where the posters care enough to have any real discussion about it.

And seriously, anyone like you who defends the tv threads should really have no say in the matter. It's pure hypocrisy. I don't even mind the threads being here though. Know why? Even though they don't meet the strict criteria of the rules, they aren't really going to get the level of discussion they deserve on any other board, just like GBA. I could tell you to fuck off to /vg/ or even /g/ to talk about it, but unlike you I'm aware that there's not as much interest there. Also, I don't have autism, which helps.

It's like you don't understand.

This board is self-moderated.

There is no mod on /vr/, random mods delete some posts here and there here, but only if they break major rules (like posting NSFW on a blue board, etc). When mods get reports for things like blatant console war shitposting or 6th gen they don't care, because they don't even brose /vr/, they don't know the culture here.

We have the sticky with the rules, and we follow them, because we know that the moment Halo is officially allowed here, it's the end of /vr/.

Like it or not, you won't be able to discuss 6th gen here. You will get NOT RETRO and that's it.
