NOSTALGIA BYTES — Old Faces in New Places

Nostalgia is a word that permeates the world of modern gaming. Despite our personal definition of “retro,” it seems we all want to find something that fills a certain void. We crave an experience that recaptures a feeling we had with a game from generations past. I believe we find a “certain something” in older titles that likely has more to do with our lives at the time we first experienced it than the game itself. 


“For the love of the game.”

I love games.  There, I said it.  It took a solid few hours of dedicated deliberation to finally decide on my “angle” for this post, but it turns out it was just as simple as those three words.  Life can be complicated, exhausting, stressful, and everything in between; games are not, at least not in the same way, so here I am, proclaiming my adoration from the rooftops…or a keyboard, through a monitor, posted on the internet for the world to see.
