Why, hello there. By either a lucky coincidence or pure curiosity, you seem to have stumbled upon this little blog of mine. Now, what exactly am I going to do here, you may ask? Well, that’s a good question..
From the late 70’s all the way to 1999, something magical happened..something that I’d like to call “The Classic Age of Gaming”.
Back in the day, gaming was different. Nowadays, when someone thinks of the term “video game”, a lot of franchises tend to come to mind. Call of Duty, Gears of War, Halo, the works..
But back then, it wasn’t all “military soldiers” or anything like that. Back then, games were about taking whatever hardware you had, pushing it to it’s very limits, and give someone something that they would look back upon ten years from now, and say: “You know, I’m glad that I played this as a kid”. Series such as Sonic the Hedgehog, The Legend of Zelda, and Mario have long lasted the 80’s and early 90’s and are still going strong to this day. (Well, Mario and Zelda at least. Sonic…well, that’s a topic for another time.)
However, with every yang, there is a ying.
There are certain companies back then who didn’t want to make games for players..but rather to just steal their hard-earned money. These certain companies have made games that are not only considered to be the worst of their respective time period, but the worst games ever made..PERIOD.
That’s why I have started all this. My goal is to cover every video game released from 1978 to 1999 humanly possible, and see which ones manage to hold up, and which ones don’t.
So hold on tight, folks – it’s going to be a funny, informative, and downright wild ride.
