Retro Gaming (or Old School Gaming) is a term used to describe old video games and consoles. The genre is generally used in video game reviewing due to the abundance of emulators. Where the line goes between Old- and 'New' School gaming of course depends from person to person. Some may consider the Xbox retro, and some may say that a game isn't retro unless it's on the Super Nintendo or older.

Many of the most popular video game reviewers and let's players are retro gamers, such as the Angry Video Game Nerd, Armake21 and SpoonyOne.
