Video gaming has seen many generations and evolutions since its creation. We have seen games come from their humble beginnings of a line or a square, growing to a collection of pixels brought together to represent basic shapes and characters all the way through to motion captured actors and massively detailed vistas all in the name of video game entertainment.
We here at JoypadAndMe want to remember where our love of video gaming came from, what lead up to the games that we have on our current systems. With franchises spanning generations now it can sometimes mean that to know where a story or a character came from, you need to cross the generation gap. Some of us even collect old consoles and games. The retro gaming genre is ever-growing and in the thousands and thousands of games out there are many gems, some well-known and some relatively hidden to the masses. We would like to shine a light on some of these games and maybe help you relive fond memories or possibly even open your eyes to what has gone before.
Either way, we hope you enjoy our Retro Reviews section.
