A spin-off of their popular /v/ gaming channel, the new retro section was trialled for a few weeks to test its popularity and now seems to be a permanent addition to the Interests tab.
As with anything on 4Chan, it is generally uncensored, crude and attracts its fair share of trolls, but there are also some useful and very interesting discussions and advice threads.
Recent favourites include the benefits of using real hardware over emulation, the joys of CRT over LCD for classic systems, hardware mods and titles for more obscure consoles like the Atari Jaguar and the 3DO.

This board is for the discussion of classic, or "retro" games. Retro gaming means consoles, computer games, arcade games (including pinball) and any other forms of video games on platforms launched in 1999 and earlier. Sixth generation and later consoles are not considered retro.
