Personal Retro Gaming

In this episode:

  • We don't tend to be big retro gamers, but that doesn't mean we don't have tons of fond memories tied to retro games.
  • Our personal experience with games from our childhood and adolescence are considered retro games, which is kind of hard to deal with. But we do. For you folks. 
  • We discuss some of the first experiences we have with gaming, some of the best experiences of our lives and how they shaped us into the responsible(?) adults we are, and how some games are better relegated to the past instead of being revisited.
  • Initially, we expected this to be a super short topic, but as you can guess, the discussion went places that we didn't expect, and we ended up going to some pretty cool places regarding retro games (such as why don't Sega games hold up as well as Nintendo ones? Why can you buy a Sega collection and console at a yard sale for a quarter, but can't even find a NES Classic for $500 these days?) Cool stuff like that.
