  • Great video man! There's definitely something to be said about approaching a game with very little knowledge about it. Seems like nowadays game companies divulge so much information about a game before it releases that there aren't very many surprises left when you actually play the game. Whenever I'm really excited for an upcoming game I intentionally stay away from the sneak peeks and gameplay teasers. The mystery is half the fun!

  • ahh man great vid. yeah i love to go back to the retro games here and there although as a kid i never really knew what games were coming out or what games existed for a console until ps2/gamecube so pretty much any games on the ps1/mega drive/nes/snes/n64 were always a pleasant surprise for me. its only really now that i enjoy the hype of new game releases.

    and indie games for me are much like my early gaming days i don't know what's coming next in advance i don't know if they will be good but i can't help jumping in and finding out. which is where my new series will be great as i will be showcasing 3 indie games per episode and each episode will be constricted to a game genre. and of course we will return to genres to cover more games XD

  • Woah, retrospective perspective, I like it! 🙂 I never saw it that way bro, but you make very some good points. I remember the days where you took a chance and hope for the best when you rented/bought games. Breaking games were fun! Great times!

    Very historic! Love the video bro! 🙂

  • Nostalgia is a powerful drug my friend. Some of the games we played growing up weren’t good at all compared to the games of today, but they filled our lives with joy nonetheless. Great video!

    I do love a bit of Fortnite every so often but you can't beat Mario!
