What is a Retro Game?

 

A retro game is a type of video game that is either considered “classic” or pays homage to old school gaming with its graphics or gameplay.

The argument of when a game is considered to be retro is one that will continue forever as newer consoles are released over time. Generally, those games that can only be found on computers that are no longer being produced are often thought of as retro.

When it comes to Steam and modern gaming’s interpretation of a retro game, these are more commonly those with graphics that resemble the time they aim to target, which is often the 1980s or 1990s.

The retro tag is often given to side-scrolling platformers, such as Cuphead, Shovel knight, and Broforce. These games pay homage to the games of the 1990s with their simple controls, easy to learn mechanics, and straightforward gameplay.

There are many other genres where you can find games tagged as retro, including FPS games such as Ion Fury, or RPGs such as Eschalon, and even roguelikes.

Retro can also describe games that have recently been remastered and released for a modern audience. These games will always be popular as gamers get older and want to play games they grew up with. Games such as Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Sypro Reignited, Destroy All Humans! and Battletoads are great examples of games that have been re-released with huge success.

Retro games will always be around and will always have great success regardless of what genre you find them in due to the memories they invoke in those who grew up with those kinds of games.

As the years continue, so too will retro games evolve, and one day a new game released today will be considered retro and possibly re-released in the future.

So, don’t disregard a game because of its retro tag. Instead, play it and understand that you may be playing a game that could have been genre-defining when it was released twenty years earlier.

 

Why Are We Doing a Top 15 Retro Game List?

In the world of Retro Games, fantastic games can be found at incredible prices but you can also be at a greater risk of being left disappointed.

Not all games reach their potential and get a release, unfortunately many games are left abandoned by their developers or are even released in a poor state and are yet still available to purchase on Steam.

Steam is in the business of selling games and sometimes that can mean a drop in quality in order to get more titles onto the Steam Store and available for purchase.

At Allkeyshop, we believe in quality over quantity and because of that we use every bit of data that Steam offers and we use that to provide the most detailed analysis of a game’s ranking.

How Do We Get Our Rankings?

Our rankings will take all available pieces of data into account, in particular we focus on the real ratings, real opinions and recommendations of those that play the game.

As a part of our ranking, we ensure that only those that own the game, have it currently available in their library and are logged into their account can vote for their favourite games. This, along with our other data, ensures we have the most accurate ranking system possible.

We only show the top 15 games so that you are not overwhelmed with hundreds of games and swamped in too much data. We plan on refreshing our top 15 each week, but we may change this plan if we find it has a real demand from you, our users.

Allkeyshop is a price comparator site with the intention of giving players the best price possible for the best games available. We remain fully impartial on prices and sellers, displaying both online sites and platforms such Steam, Origin and Epic, and we remain completely impartial on the rating of those games that we highlight in our rankings.

Our rankings are based on our users with no influence from us and we will remain impartial on the ratings and the rankings of all games.
