"When Is A Video Game Console Considered 

To Be Retro?"


It's a question we see pop up on Twitter and video games Forums from time to time and it got us thinking of how retrogaming could potentially be defined.

So, we've had a go at creating The Games Freezer Retronometer….

This is not an exact science so we are open to amendment and opinion but this is how we see it……

There are 5 points on the Games Freezer Retronometer scale.

5 being Retrogaming Classic

1 being Recent / Current Consoles
