What is considered Retro when thinking of gaming? Well among collectors the 6th generation of consoles backwards is considered true retro consoles. The range of the 6th generation includes the OG xbox, Playstation 2, Sega Dreamcast and Nintendo Gamecube. So these and anything made before it Would be retro.
There are emulators available that can play Roms of all the vintage games available but the legality of this is questionable as Roma could be classed as counterfeit versions of the software and may be subject to copyright. Whilst Rom playing can give people a feel for the game My personal stance is that they are not original and do not play correctly so don't give a true experience.
One of the many questions that is asked is "What is the best retro gaming system?"
Well it all comes down to personal preference of the particular generation of console, The question is still asked of systems today, what is better Sony ps5, Microsoft Xbox series X or PC? Every format has their loyal fans that follow the company as they are bought into the brand.
