PS2 - no
Game Cube - no
Dreamcast - no

Of those systems, I only own a DC but I don't class it as "retro"... 10 years since the system was launched is the "retro" cut off point for me... so the Dreamcast will be "retro" at the end of next year! :D
GAME OVER YEEEAAAHHH!

The Dreamcast and (especially) the GameCube look retro, though...

I think we'll soon need a separate mag: Really Retro Games for the old 'uns.

I've actually never used a PS2... I've got one waiting for me in the UK next time I pop over though, along with (so far) R-Type Final, Gradius V and OutRun 2006...

I'm sure if you fancied popping round my Mum's place for some tea and scones she'd be happy to let you have a quick blast.... before slowly edging out of the door and telephoning the nutter brigade post haste... ;)

Depends on the game.

Geo Wars is retro and that's on 360 for instance.

Ok, PM her address and I'll nip round next week. If she answers the door and I say I'm a friend of The Master she'll be alright with that won't she?

Hell No!!! who's idea was this question, anyway? in no way can you call the PS2 retro. retro to me is Saturn/PS1 backwards.

anything after that is too new. like the gamecube. just because its breathed its last breath a year ago technically (Tomb raider Legend and FIFA 06 being the latest games) doesnt mean that as soon as a machine has had no new games released for it over a period of, say, six months, doesnt mean to say that a machine thats just snuffed it is retro.


i really dont know if any of that made any sense.........sounded pretty good, though!
