Remember blasting aliens on a Galaga machine, jumping on turtles with a Nintendo console, raising hell on Doom with a 486 PC or tagging up Los Santos, San Fierro and Las Venturas on your Playstation 2 ?
Then welcome to the retro thread! From the earliest incarnations of computer gaming on a 8 bit machine from the 70's, to the rise of 3D and well beyond, I'd like to invite all who have an interest in the realms of not-so-modern games to sit down, have a chat about your favorites, praise the best, scold the worst, cry about the unfair and laugh about the weird.
But please, don't be led to believe that there's a strict definition of what's retro and classic here. While of course you'd probably have a better time talking about Fortnite, The Last of Us 2 and all the recent games elsewhere, 2000's gaming can be considered just as classic as 90's and 80's gaming, and as the new decade is upon us, even early 2010's titles deserve a conversation here.
If you've been to Reddit's "Patient Gamers" community, and you find that type of conversation interesting, I'd love if you helped us bring it here as well!
Talk about what you're playing now, what you played earlier, what you love, what you hate, what you'd like to play, what you know about, if it's from roughly 1977 to 2013, let's hear it!
