Top Ten Stupidest Things Nostalgic Retro Gamers Say

Gamers can be pretty stupid at times but I believe the most annoying gamers are the super nostalgic retro and I feel that some of their points are incredibly stupid (just because you play retro games doesn't mean I dislike you as a person I am just saying what I think are the most annoying things that super nostalgic retro gamers say)

The Top Ten

1 Kids today can't play the old games

It's the stupid idiots who rate them M and after we are old enough the games aren't playable anymore because they are "expired". - AlphaQ

Shut the 90s were the best decade ever.

90s was not the best decade ever, you miss being a child not a care in the world.
I was a child in the 90s.
Shame I wasn't an 80s kid, oh the 90s was the best.

2 My childhood was better than yours

I hate when people say this. It makes some 90s kids (not all) look egotistical just because of the decade they were born in. - Pony

Hey! That's rude!

No. In fact Yiu guys are just jealous because you wish you were kids again. Don't worry I understand. - AlphaQ

I don't really like the word 90s kid anymore I prefer Child of the 90s.
Because I don't say the 90s WAZ DA B3ST D@CADE EEEVVAAA SWCREW DA 21ST CNTURY DAT SUXZ MY CH! LDH00D WAZ BETAR DAN YURZ! @! @@! 11111 - 90s kid stereotype

3 Today's game developers don't have respect for old games

Then why do remakes and emulations exist? - Skullkid755

Newer games are much better. They're more complicated, advance, have better graphics and are just as fun. - AlphaQ

And Virtual Console!

4 Every game today is a gritty war shooter
5 Call of Duty ruined gaming

Seriously I'm not necessarily a fan of Call of Duty but it has not ruined gaming - Gamer4life

I guess they only look at the Fanbase, not the games

6 Kids Today Are stupid because they don't know what the Sega Genesis is.

No only Americans know what Sega Genesis is.

People who don't live in America won't know what The Sega Genesis is if they grew up when it came out unless they read about it in some video game magazine. Its called The Sega Megadrive the original name.

To whoever put this on the list thank you how did I not think of something like this when I was making the list and I've encountered so many people who use this argument (mostly 90s kids) - Gamer4life

That's not true, because my Dad in fact owned a Genesis. - Pony

7 Games today are too easy

Maybe it's because you've been playing games a lot, and have a lot of practice! - BlueTopazIceVanilla

No Grand Theft Auto 5 is not that easy for beginners. - AlphaQ

Compared to retro games like Ghosts n Goblins, Battletoads, Silver Surfer, Super Mario Bros.: The lost Levels most modern games were a cake walk compared to those brutally hard just mentioned. - egnomac

Tetrix is too easy as well. - AlphaQ

8 Old games are deep and complex

Bull crap alert. - AlphaQ

Hello? Since when we're simple games like Tetrix complex? - AlphaQ

9 All Video Games today are for adults

Actually that's false. Yiu have video games for kids like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. - AlphaQ

Yes. YAR. They let kids play RATED-M games like Grand Theft Auto
When they become adult, they will kill inocent people like the Grand Theft Auto game
My little cousin play that and I can't stop it...
~Joe victor 11 yers old

10 People have no respect for Nintendo these days

What? I LOVE Nintendo! - BlueTopazIceVanilla

They only think about the Sony fanboys on this one. CLEARLY.

WHAT I love Nintendo! I just prefer the newer consoles (Nintendo Switch, Wii, 3DS) over the older ones (SNES, GBA, N64) - AlphaQ

The Contenders

11 Generation 1 is the best and anything after that isn't Pokemon!

Which is utterly false. - RiverClanRocks

Every generation after Gen 1 has been better in some way or another - PerfectImpulseX

Gen 1 was best. No doubt. But other pokemon games exidt. They are still fun.

Stupid Genwunners

12 The NES is the Best System Ever

Good when it was newer, but it hasn't aged well. - Skullkid755

Nah not really. Nintendo Switch is a lot better. - AlphaQ

13 Sega Megadrive

Sega Genesis is the Yank name

14 Sonic Mania is bad, because it's not from 90s
