Retro games have three main activities; vintage retrogaming, retrogaming emulation, and ported retrogaming. Vintage retrogaming includes games that are played on the original hardware. Emulation involves newer systems simulating old gaming systems, while ported retrogaming allows games to be played on modern hardware via ports or compilations.

Many players are drawn to retrogames as they are nostalgic for different eras, also that older games are more innovative and original, and the simplicity of the games that requires less hours of gameplay.
