Thanks for stopping by! I created this blog to post reviews and generate intelligent discussion of my extensive collection of videogames -- mostly old-school console titles. The consoles in my collection include: Atari 2600, Nintendo Entertainment System, Super NES, Sega Genesis/Sega CD, Sega Saturn, Sony PlayStation, Sony PlayStation2, Nintendo 64, Sega Dreamcast and Sony PS3. I also have Sega Game Gear and Nintendo Game Boy Advance in the portable realm, and a MAME arcade emulator on my PC -- which will allow me to revisit the great arcade scene of the late 80s and early 90s.
My reason for wanting to write about these consoles and their game libraries is mostly because I find most modern games to be quite boring and uninspired. Having grown up in the days of the Atari, Coleco, Intellivision and Commodore game systems, I remember when games had real imagination behind their development and witnessed their creative growth as the technology grew more sophisticated.
I'll ocassionally want to discuss the new games out there, but most of the in-depth discussions will revolve around the games from the 1980s and 1990s -- when games were fun! I'll do this in no particular order, and some games will even get a "Great Games" designation -- a tribute to Roger Ebert's "Great Movies" section on his website.
The first game will be one of my all-time favorites: Super Dodge Ball for the NES. Look for it tomorrow.
