Category:Games released on outdated platforms

Games that are released too late on certain platforms due to their old hardware, mostly because they were succeeded by other consoles a long time ago or released years after their discontinuation, or development hell. This practice generally causes problems, such as poor graphics and the fact that players that have a console that lacks backwards compatibility with its predecessor will completely be unable to play a game only on the predecessor console, sometimes unless they mod their console to install an unofficial emulator for that platform.

The only exception is that games can be released on platforms that have already been succeeded by other ones at the time these games are released, or a few years after they came out, to do not make customers necessarily have to buy their console's successor to play a game, and instead get it for the platform they currently own.
