A New Arrival To Retro Gaming
Can you believe that people have been gaming since the seventies? In fact, even longer than that if we consider the time consoles have been in production. It seems like only yesterday, doesn’t it? Yet, games consoles have moved at such a fast rate that the originals have been shunted into the history books. You may watch your kids playing on the latest releases and wonder how things could change so much. But, even now nothing beats the beginning. The good news is, retro gaming is still big business. The consoles may not be in production anymore, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t around. And, we’re going to look at a few of the reasons why you should encourage your kids to use them.
NOTHING BEATS THE ORIGINALS
We may be looking at them through rose tinted glasses, but nothing beats the originals, right? Kids now have ipads and top of the range Playstations. But, they miss out on Sega and Atari. Consoles of the past just seem to have more heart behind them. It may be because production was nowhere near as huge as it is now. New release consoles and games can often seem a little heartless. But, things couldn’t have been more different back in the day. When new games were released once in a blue moon, you came to love them like an extension of yourself. Better, you could see the geeky hearts of everyone who worked on them. The fact that many young gamers still turn to the retro options suggests we’re not being sentimental when we say that. So, let your kids have a go. Chances are, they’ll fall in love in the same way you did!
