So does Retro Gamer stand for "Retrogressive Gamer", or is it meant to imply that you cover only retrogressive games? Do you cover any real retro games at all? (i.e. contemporary games designed with retro-modeled mechanics)
Also, do you think that Crime and Punishment is a retro novel? Or Mozart retro music? Citizen Kane a retro movie?
Perhaps you should publish an article clearing that up in the 100th issue. I think that after close to a decade of this bullshit it might be time you addressed your magazine's astonishingly retarded title.
Failing that denial will do just fine too, I guess.
It stands for retrospective
gamer, you know, from the dictionary definition:
Retro: Involving, relating to, or reminiscent of things past; retrospective
In other words, the title of the magazine is "gamers reminiscing about games", not
"old games!". It's a retrospective of games, just as you can have an Orson Welles retrospective, or a Mozart retrospective. The article you've posted might have some merit if the title of the magazine were Retro Games
. But it's not. The design or age of the games themselves is technically irrelevant, since the magazine name doesn't address that (and plenty of contemporary games have appeared in the mag).
Hope that clears things up for you
