    After reading two recent articles on Retro Gamer, I started to think about how there are recent games out that contain game design that's simple, fun and adictive (such as those found in retro games), that are combined with the technology used in today's games. So I was wondering if any of you guys thought of games that would fit this category nicely. I think that Katamari Damacy, Jet Grind Radio, and Crash Bandicoot would fit the category.
    P.S.
    please try to come up with games that are NOT released by Popcap

    Retro game challenge is fun and hilarous.

    As for me, it depends of how retro you are looking for. The latest gradius some is old school but umbrella chronicle sure have the retro arcade feels to it. SF4 also comes to mind.
