So a connected question to this thread, anyone in favor of there being a retro gamer forum, to discuss games of the past, but also newer stuff that is like games of the past? Pretty much to get away from the Call of Duty crowd and the mass appeal stuff? Also to debate what would qualify? I can put a poll up in the website discussion forum on here.
I think it's a fine idea :)
You could ask axumblade or another mod about creating an official retro thread.
