Time moves on and so does 'retro'. I think that lilalurl will agree that UT99 and UT2004 are already retro and the same goes for the Dreamcast. So even something that doesn't exist yet might be retro in 20 years. I'm quite sure that people will feel kind of the same about the PS3 or the XBox 360 in 20 years like we do about the C64, Spectrum, Amiga and so on. Of course not all of them, but the ones that share our 'genes' For us the games of today might not have the same 'impact' as the games from our youth, but imagine that your first game ever was Batman: Arkham City or Rage. You'd prolly feel the same way about it as you do about Bubble Bobble or Carrier Command. I guess music is a good example: In the 50's Charleston was 'retro' while Rock 'n Roll was 'hip' and then in the 70's Rock 'n Roll was retro and so on
