I play retro games, so I suppose I qualify, but I mean I break up the balance between older games and newer games. For everytime I've replayed Planescape, I've gone back and played Witcher 3 or for every playthrough of VTM Bloodlines, I play coop L4D2. Seems kinda handicapping to focus on one particular era of games when there's good games from every era

Until very recently, the newest games I've been able to play have been PS2 games. Most often, I emulates PSX or SNES games.

Was it because I was a retro gamer? No, not really--it's because I couldn't afford newer systems.

Now that I'm getting into a few of the newer games, I love the eye candy but am not really impressed with freedom in the games... It's like they try to make games more like movies with a lot less choices than games I played as a kid on the NES and SNES.

Hell, sooner or later, I swear they'll be trying to combine gaming and movies into one experience, and it makes me sad.

I'm primarily a retro-gamer. I like some newer games, but I don't have the time to sit down and play many newer games. So, playing classics I've played before (or Pokemon, which never ages) is the bulk of what I do...

I make liberal usage of DOSbox and GoG.

I detest the recent move to ARPGs, though there have been some very good turn based strategy games released in the past year.

FYI - the Internet Archive has a HUGE collection of free to play DOS games.

No, I just play what I find fun, it doesn't matter to me if it is retro or modern.

I play whatever I find appealing.
