I don't know. I guess "retro" is relative. Before SNES we had NES, before NES we had Atari 2600 before Atari 2600 we had something called the "Magnavox Odyssey" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_video_games
Like the video mentions it's not uncommon for one to once in a while ponder the early days when things were "simpler". That too is relative. Most people in the world didn't have a simple childhood.
There are many new things happening around the world that has never happened before (old things too, history buffs :)). I think the generation of nerds the video speaks of is a unique phenomena I like to call the "1st world western 80's generation".
I dunno, I still play my Double Dragons and Yoshi's worlds once in a while :D
