Man.....that just freaks me out....thinkin' that N64 is now considered as "retro"...

Well, I wouldn't really put the N64 in the Retro category, but I didn't want to have to keep breaking it down by generation :wink: At least in the VG Collectors community back home, "retro" is 16-bit and earlier. Thanks to the Playstation's continued currency, there's debate about extending it as far as the PS/N64/Saturn gen.

I dunno...it seems old enough to be considered retro now...at least to me. It's archaic compared to the new systems that are out, not to mention anyone who still plays it (rather than the new systems) is viewed by most as a retard. All I can say is, I love my 'box.Image[/list]

It's definitely a dead system, but considering it's at the halfway point technologically between the PS gen and the current gen, powerwise I don't think it's quite retro yet. Once the PS3/Revolution/XB2 come out, I'd say that'll but the N64 firmly in the retro category.
