Could the popularity of SNES Classic lead to the revival of 16 bit gaming? 

The SNES Classic is quite possibly the most popular game console in retail stores right now.  In fact it seems like the SNES Classic has been talked about more than the PS4 or the Xbox One back in September of 2017.  The fact that pre orders for  the retro based game console sold out very fast shows the world how popular the SNES was back in the 90’s and how nostalgia has contributed to more people having a strong desire to purchase the SNES Classic in the late 10’s.


While the 16 bit started to decease back in the mid 90’s there are many retro gamers who believe that the 16 bit era wasn’t long enough.  When it comes down to 16 bit of gaming during the early to mid 90’s some would argue that the golden era video games took place around that particular time period.  While the SNES and the Sega Genesis had provided us with many unforgettable titles during the early 90’s it wouldn’t be a surprise to some of the popularity of the SNES Classic leads to a higher demand of more 16 bit video games in the future.
