Retrogaming has 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 that simulate old gaming systems, while portable retrogaming allows games to be played on modern hardware via ports or compilations. In addition, the term may apply to a newer game, but with features similar to those of older games, such as a "retro RPG" that has a turn based battle and an isometric perspective of the room. Hobbyists are sometimes known as retrogamers in the UK, while "classic gamers" or "old school gamers" are more widespread in the United States. Similarly, games are known as retrogames, classic games or old games.

Retrogaming has existed since the early years of the video game industry but has been popularized with the popularity of internet and emulation technology. It is argued that the main reasons why players are attracted to retrogame are nostalgia for different epochs, the idea that older games are more innovative and original and the simplicity of games that require less hours of play. Retrogation and retrocompression have been described as conservation activity and as aspects of remix culture.
