I think these are ports, not necessarily retro. And i dont think the Final Fantasy titles in 3D remakes would count as retro at all.

I still cant see how most if these are called retro now.

Well most of the games in the original list are from the 90's (or 80's) with some like GTA being over 10 years old.

I mean retro changes, to me retro does mean 80's/early 90's but now it seems to suggest 10+ years old which is fair enough.

Plus many of those other games were on mostly dead systems (Eg Genesis/SNES/C64/Spectrum/Atari) etc so its great to have these retro games on iOS

For me i love looking over all the years of gaming. When i was very young in the late late 70's my cousin had an Atari VCS, amazing seeing that. Then as a kid the home computer boom of the 80's so i loved playing games (via tape !) on my ZX Spectrum and programming some basic short games.

Then the arcades were an amazing time in the 80's. 90's and consoles and the rise of the PC. Mid 90's the internet and so on.

It really makes you appreciate a lot of old classics, all these years later i'm buying games for a pound or two every week to run on a mobile device, full of classics from the 70s/80s/90s and 00s. Amazing !!

(And its great theres a monthly magazine for retro fans - Retro Gamer, love this mag)
