Video games are awesome and these days everyone is playing them, but there’s a long and wonderful history to video games that too many people are missing out on. This site exists because I hate to think there are gamers out there who have never played Chrono Trigger or who think the first Mario game came out on their Nintendo Wii.

Retro gaming is becoming a shared global passion and I created this site to help people who are getting into the hype, starting in a solid way without (hopefully) any bad advice or unneeded details.

I’ve been a gamer for almost thirty years and started gaming on systems that were from before my own birth. Video games are an integral part of my life and I spend a lot of time playing and writing about them. I really think that some of the best entertainment experiences are to be had with a controller in hand, not passively sitting in a theater.

So if you, like me, think that games are more than just a hobby and want to understand them historically and on a deeper level, I think that my site is a great place to start.

I make a living simplifying things for other people and this site is a passion project where I bring those particular skills to the retro gaming community’s gate.

So thanks for visiting my site and I hope this is the start of a wonderful journey for you. Whether you have an eight- or sixteen-bit soul, you are always welcome here, and remember that the game must go on. Have fun and don’t do anything I wouldn’t do!
