You guys really need to look around for great retro like games this gen...if you are looking at CoD, Gears and Uncharted as an excuse, you are doing it so very wrong. :roll:

2D doesn't necessarily mean "retro", some 3D games to me feel very retro. Ever played the first crash game? That is hard as f*** and it's a good platformer! (albeit glitchy), and I am warming up to "future classics" such as Jet Set Radio Future (a platformer where you need to spray graffiti on gang members or walls doing every trick in the book to get to a few!?!

So yeah...I do like my retro games but this gen has provided me with quite a few offerings also!?!

I feel sad about the death of local multiplayer. Online multiplayer isn't nearly as fun or satisfying.

Also the death of proper portable gaming. 3DS and Vita are just console games for portable devices. Portable games used to be designed around portability and I feel like GBA was kind of the last generation for this. The DS did have an awesome library of games though.

Also the death of JRPGs. :(

What else in gaming has died out, I wonder......

I like retro games, but I disagree that retro gaming is better as a whole, especially with regards to some genres: like simulations!

@JPanzer: Agreed, to an extent.
