"When Is A Video Game Console Considered
To Be Retro?"
It's a question we see pop up on Twitter and video games Forums from time to time and it got us thinking of how retrogaming could potentially be defined.

This is not an exact science so we are open to amendment and opinion but this is how we see it……
There are 5 points on the Games Freezer Retronometer scale.
