Why I Started retr0pia:
For the longest time, I wanted to start a blog about something, but I wasn’t quite sure about what it should be focused around. However, after taking note about just how many titles from The Classic Age of Gaming (Which in my eyes, started in 1978 and ended in 1999, though I may stretch it out to 2001 when Sega announced their withdrawal from the console market) have either received extremely negative attention or have just been outright forgotten whether or not they truly deserve it, I realized what my blog should be focused around: reviews of classic video games, and choosing which ones hold up, and which ones don’t.
A Piece Of Advice:
Always make sure to branch out in terms of content and topics. As a wise man once said, “Variety’s the very spice of life, That gives it all its flavor”.
