It seems these days that most games tend to fall into all too familiar gameplay mechanics. Remember the days when the hardware was much more limited and gameplay creativity was at a higher level than it seems to be now in commercial games?
Well thankfully "retro" or "classic" are the cool new catchphrases these days that are making commercial publishers consider older game genre from the big hits of the 80s and 90s. Added to that sites like Kickstarter are allowing indie developers to go back into those other genre that was said to be "dead" and are creating great projects to bring them back using today's new standards and operating systems.
What was your top 3 favorite game genre from back when until now?
I probably could have come up with more genres, however there is a limit of 10 poll options.
