I'd say 20 years. Atari, NES, Master System etc... SNES and Genesis are on the verge of being. Technically, the Genesis is already 21 years old in the US, the SNES is short by one year. Anything later, not vintage.
Apparently this game is vintage:
Oh average joe, you never cease to amaze.
Blog (reviews, podcasts, music shows, interviews)
and this sums it up for me as well
Vintage = Anything before the NES/MS
Classic = 8/16-bit years
Nostalgic = 32bit to DC
Modern = PS2 to today.
Still people call songs under 5 years old these days Retro. Where did over use of the word Retro come from I never heared the word ever used in the 80's or 90's?
5yr old songs are "retro"? Clearly these whippersnappers haven't been told the true meaning of the word.
"Retro" implies it was something that was once popular, wasn't for a good while (OVER 5 years) and is re-emerging in popularity.
The NES would fit this criteria...circa 2003. Today it seems to have gotten some "legendary" status, which is why bug shit covered blinkers can go for $100.
