    ^^That may be true to those who lived in the 80s. But how about the newer generation? They might think games before the PS1/N64/Saturn are retro or vintage.

    I just wanted to hear what everyone believed makes a classic system or game.

    I was honestly wondering if a sort of criteria could have made up to stop people like the Halo fanboys from saying the newest Halo is a classic a week after launch, or the GTA fanboys from saying GTA4 is already a classic.

    Thankfully Stalfros has spoken and now we know what makes a classic game :D

    Just another thought, I would have to say a classic game was unexpected. I mean everyone knows that games from popular franchises like Civ or Total War or even Zelda will sell well and continue to be played many years after they first came out, it is almost a given.

    What I mean from an unexpected game is perhaps something that a small independent developer brought out or a game that really didnt have much marketing as the marketing people didnt think it would do too well.

    I disagree. The best classics never leave your mind and always pop up in references between your friends.
