Not really retro but a game that hopefully will interest some people here.

Nier is probably the most under rated game of this generation. Ignore the mediocre reviews, it's one of the most fascinating games this generation with some stellar narrative, writing and acting performances. Also by far and away the best soundtrack for a videogame in years:
