But Lemmings is the last one I remember doing anything really new. Maybe I'm just forgetting something that came out since then, so that's just off the top of my head.
I like 2D games, 60's/70's sitcoms, old movies, old music...I am a retro man. Not because I live in the past, but because modern games, modern TV, modern films, and (a lot of) modern music is utter tosh!
You're correct about Peter Molyneux, I've played the demo of Black & White and it's pretty much an updated Populous. But I do get a kick out of playing 'GOD'
As for retro in general, if it trips your trigger then go for it. I like old stuff and new. Probably the two things I despise the most is Country Music and Broccoli :laugh
