Default Retro games

I've been looking for some good arcade games and about 50% of the results I've been getting are retro.

I don't understand the trend. Why would you buy a beast of a machine which can play games with amazing graphics yet you prefer to go for some pixelated thing that looks like it can be played on an Atari from the 80s. What gives?

Also, what are your top retro games so I can see what it's about...?

I'd say Party Hard, Shovel Knight, Stardew Valley, Braid, and Graveyard Keeper are good examples of 2D retro-styled games that are dope to play.

It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken
Perhaps they're better left unsung

Mechanics shine bright even if the graphics don't necessarily. I also really love the retro graphics style. I know it's being used a lot more these days, especially with indie developers. But if the game is good, I don't mind it. I second both Stardew Valley and Shovel Knight.

I also don't call them "retro games" because that insinuates they are very old. They're more retro styled games.
