Well the 'new' games are certainly immersive; graphics, audio and a well designed world can really help a lot there.

But where current gen games provide immersion through realism, retro games provide immersion through imagination. A far, FAR more powerful medium in the hands of the right person. Many indie games actually reach back to that kind of immersion, I hope that will continue so the latest generation of gamers can also experience it.
