Interesting selection

Not terrible. This is a good cast to hear about some random games. The hosts are mostly relatable, seem like good dudes. Definitely fun if you participate with the lists and game of the quarter. Only major complaint, it does often drag on. They read every email and provide narrative on each, and it’s just too much. The first hour of the show is pert great; if you shut it off there you would not miss much. I wish they’d keep the email portion around an hour as opposed to the two hour plus segment it often drudges into. If you like classic games and sharing experiences with them, def give it a listen!

Later was better?

Like most people who found this podcast, I have a lot nostalgic feelings for the games I played on various game systems between 1985 and 1995. By the title I was hoping for a podcast from people who appreciate old games, but instead they spent the 30 mins that they actually talked about the game ragging on why it sucked compared to similar games of the genre that came many years later. Of course games that came later are better, why wouldn’t they be?

These guys clearly know games and gaming so I was very surprised to not get any fun factoids about how some of my favorite old games were done on a shoe-string budget or innovated a new style of game play that later games could expand upon. Instead they just mean-girled these classic games like 15 year olds on a school bus with no regard for how impressive certain features of the games would have been at the time they were released or that most the game story would have been in the user manual not the intro to the game.

Ragging on something doesn’t make you cool or edgy. It’s easy to find fault. How about you do some research and fill your time with positive information and fun factoids for actual classic game fans. Like I said, these guys clearly know games so why all the negative for the content of your own podcast?

I mean honestly if you have so many bad things to say about classic games then maybe you should have started a “Fortnite” podcast instead.

My favorite retro gaming Podcast

I have been listening for about a year and really enjoy this podcast. When it releases the next episode I will stop listening to anything else until I finish it. Robert and Jay are funny and have some interesting insights on games. I enjoy hearing the retro games they are playing each podcast. The email may very well be the best section.
