Retro Gaming Rocks

 

 

Cordova, TN; March 15 in the year of our Lord 2021 -- Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is continuing to be the voice of diversity in the gaming media, and media at large while trying to bring balance back to a very imbalanced industry. A reality of great importance dawned upon me recently. Do you know what that reality is? Retro Gaming ROCKS! I suppose in some cases you could call it nostalgia gaming. We get more emails concerning older video games than we do concerning brand spanking new ones. What does that tell us? It tells us that the passion for retro gaming is there. Video game companies re-release their older games because retro gaming endures.

The explosion of brand new video games done in a retro style continues to dominate the indie scene. This makes perfect sense in multiple ways as well. Indie game developers do not always have the finances to purchase the tools. Indie game developers want to recapture something that was great from a bygone era. Indie game developers may not have the expertise to deal with issues that would arise in making a brand new top of the line video game. Indie game developers do not have what they need to make a game that looks like Zelda Breath of the Wild. How many people work on many AAA video game titles? How long do they work on those AAA titles? Indie game developers cannot compete with that.

Prices for retro video games are usually way cheaper than a brand new just released video game at the store. Consumers get more game for their money by buying retro video games. That is a fact almost every single time. Families have limited financial resources. They need to be wise with what little money they have. Buying retro video games makes perfect sense to me. I have been buying more retro video games recently and we can get so many more games for so much less money. It is crazy. At the same time it feels great. If we get a lemon here and there no big deal because there are so many cherries in there.

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.

God bless,
