A Theory Of Retrogaming

It would be considered perfectly normal for someone who enjoys books to be reading books from 10, 20 or 30 years ago along with books published recently.

We don’t call those people “retroreaders.”

Yet if you do the same thing with video games it’s sort of outside the realm of mainstream activity, and you’re a “retrogamer.” It seems strange.

(Of course, we do call those that study ancient Greek and Latin classicists, but that sounds cooler.)
