Current gen games as retro classics

1 min read

What if our gaming industry did end up dying after Atari got it so badly wrong back in the day? What if things like the gaming PC, PS3 or Xbox 360 never existed and we were still gaming on 16bit machines?

Well certain people believe that life is mapped out for us and whether or not the technology had advanced or not we’d still be playing the same games that we are now. And now thanks to reddit user Afronator we can see what our current generation gaming experiences would have been like on 16bit machines.

Now unfortunately the pictures are small and s/he hasn’t labelled them so I’ve had to guess what games are being showcased… did I get any wrong?


Resident Evil

Soul Calibur


Red Dead Redemption

Need For Speed

Metal Gear Solid

Super Metroid


Little Big Planet

Guitar Hero

Brutal Legend

Final Fantasy

Super Smash Bros Brawl



What retro games did these make you miss the most?
