nothing released after say 2005 will ever be retro for me. Like 100 years from now you can talk about a game that came out in 2010 and I’ll be like nah that ain’t retro, that’s next gen!!
but more specifically, anything played on a HDTV doesnt feel retro to me. PS3 games still feel like next-gen, and PS4 games felt exactly like PS3 games. Also PS3 games all suck, so all the more reason why I would never want to taint my perception of good retro games with those awful games! lol
until brand new screens become the norm and we’re all playing on VR, projections, holograms, or any other viewing technology my imagination cannot think of, HD games will never feel retro. Only once those screens are considered old will the current generations of games truly feel like a throwback.
