Worth it or Worthless is a bi-weekly retro gaming show. We collect retro games (typically from the NES era up through the PS2 era), take off our nostalgia tinted glasses and decide if they’re good by today’s standards and whether or not they’re worth the price of admission. Every episode, we talk about what the game does well, what the games doesn’t do so well, and the things that are just plain weird.
