"Console version better than the arcade version" is a very 90's thing. Arcades weren't really relevant by the 2000's.

"Toys to life" and "Collector's editions" for 2010s.

How about "DLC expansions replacing final mixes/definitive editions" for 2010s/20s? I know two games that this is happening to this year; Kingdom Hearts 3 and Pokemon SwSh.

"90s nostalgia remakes" for 2010s i.e. Spyro Reignited, Crash N.Sane Trilogy, FFVII Remake.

I don't know why but "Walking Simulator" always stuck out to me as a term through the late 2010s.
