I read a post on social media which proclaimed the 16-Bit era of gaming was the best. This statement caused a lot of debate. As someone who has been an avid gamer for the past 25 years, having even worked in a video-game store, I completely agree with that statement.
It has been well over a year since I last played this wonderful little game, and I still remember everything that made it so endearing to play with one of my closest friends who recommended it to and bought for me as a birthday gift. I'm forever grateful that he did (as a side note, he's an artist, and the beautiful art style in this game is coincidently so similar to his! Check out his page to see what I mean).
Every year, Virtual Reality tech and games edge closer and closer to widespread appeal. 2019 will bring about many new advancements in the space, like built in eye tracking, wireless headsets, and maybe even a killer app. There are still challenges yet to be solved on another front, though.
Comfort is crucial when gaming. Like collapsing into a soft bed with firm pillows after a long day of work, or going on a run in your favorite sneakers, you're at your best when these accessories fit your preference. If you’re like me, you probably spend more time playing video games than you do running, and sleeping just barely has the lead between all three. And also if you’re like me, you probably got your start in gaming in the living room on a big couch, or your dad's extra large reclining chair, or, in times of great need, the floor.
The evolution of gaming has truly been remarkable. From the retro days of Pong to side scrolling adventures like Super Mario Bros to current open-world titles like Red Dead Redemption 2, there is no denying the stark differences in video games now in comparison to their earliest days.
When it comes to gaming, there are just those games that will always be forever in the hearts and minds of gamers. Some of the most popular retro adventure games are still an absolute blast to play today. Whether they are a point and click adventure or a first person shooter, these video games can be more than just a nostalgic trip down memory lane.
