They are dated in a sense because the main point of playing a retro style game for a sense of nostalgia and the list of people who can appreciate a retro game is shrinking. Some gamers of have stopped gaming because circumstances in their life and some are getting up there on age. Regardless that list is gonna shrink. Maybe you just like that kind of game the way it was but if devs want certain genres to stick around then they'll have to modernise them. I don't mean become open world or anything.

They just need to evolve in some way that draws interest back in the genre. Maybe change the perspective on how you view the character or add a lot more things you can do in the game.

You mean like what Super Mario Oddyssey looks to do?

I think you got the mail on the head. SMO looks like a great blend of classic gameplay and compelling new ideas. I'm just about as stoked for it as my son. I love having gaming to share with him. These games that bridge styles (amd characters) that are nostalgic for me and fresh and cool for him with new ideas and spectacular graphics are fantastic. I think Odysesey looks to be exactly the kind of game OP it's talking about: a blast from the Mario 64 past coupled with a foot planted firmly in the future. Excitement all around. We're still going to check out Yooka-Laylee when it launches for Switch.


PS Dragon Boy is AWESOME! More games like that, please.
