☆ A Retrogaming Film Surprise From Disney ☆ #Retrogaming #GamersUnite

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

I know i'm a bit late to the party (as usual) BUT I just had to write something about "Wreck It Ralph"

I saw this brilliant film from Disney last week and I smiled from ear to ear for a solid hour and a half.

Basically it's a retro gamer dream that's oozing with classic video games characters and takes you down memory lane through the eyes of a brilliant video games arcade and a video game that you could easily mistake for being a genuine retro arcade game.

Retrogaming Arcade Cabinets are still my favourite form of video games entertainment that was borne from the fact that I would spend many a pound in the local arcades around my area as a youngster.

Armed with my £5 worth of pocket money I would often visit the local video (VHS) rental store and spunk it all on an arcade gaming session.

Five pound was 30 credits back then (50p for 3 credits) and that £5 was the best fiver that I spent, it brought me joy untold as I tried in vain to beat the latest arcade game.

Retrogaming for me only occurs on carefully planned days of the week. It means that sometimes I will only get a one or two hour slot to play with and in that time I need to utilise my time efficiently as i may only get one chance a week to play computer games.
 
With this in mind I have created a Retrogaming Computer Games Bucket List.
 
This list is intended to highlight 2 must play games on the various consoles or computers that I am yet to play.
 
My intention is to work my way through this list before I kick the bucket!!

☆ Unintentional Games Within RetroGaming Video Games ☆ #Retrogaming #GamersUnite

Retrogaming

My retrogaming sessions usually concentrate on one particular game and I play it to complete every last part of the game before I move on….

When you play a video game solidly for months on end you begin to start looking at it in a different way…

It's normally at this point when I tend to start looking at potential for games within video games…

Trying to make up a game within a video game involves using the games mechanics to create a task or an aim that the developers didn't actually intend for…

Over the years I have created many of these sort of sub games with help from my friends and usually involving copious amounts of alcohol to get the creative juices flowing..

I invite you to read on and take a look at my favourite 3 examples...

Epic Manager as you'll recall is a daring new genre hybrid of RPG & Management Sim.... in essence its an RPGMS (not sure if that acronym will kick off but hey!)

Since it's launch things have started really positively as the games press has got right behind the project.....

The backers have been coming in steadily with the current total pledged with 23 days left is around the $12,000 mark...and counting...

The Bioshock Series as you probably already know is one of the most ground breaking set of video games that have been produced in this wonderful world of video games.

Each game a work of art and always trying to challenge you in a new way....

I adore the Bioshock games. They put you on edge and make you feel that your character is indeed mortal and underpowered (initially) against the in game characters. 

The Bioshock Games make you work hard for your right to exist in the game world and when you succeed it makes it all the sweeter.....

So imagine how excited I was when I came across this great looking Kickstarter from a group of Independent Game Developers who assisted with the creation of the Bioshock games!

This is the story of The Black Glove.........

Growing up I couldn't get enough of the Fighting Fantasy Novels by Steve Jackson & Ian Livingstone....

I'd buy the latest book from the local book shop and then hole up in my room with a dice and a piece of paper and play the hell out of that book.

It felt like they were endlessly re-playable / re-readable.

They were the books that really got me into playing role playing video games as I always wanted to be able to recreate those experiences on a computer screen....

Last year I backed the "Artcade" Kickstarter project that showcased the Arcade Art from a whole host of classic arcade marquees and I figure that there are plenty more Retro Gaming geeks, Nerds and freaks like myself who would back a similar style book but this time on the classic art of Hand Drawn Video Games Maps....

"virtual_reality__by_silentdan297"

For me Virtual Reality and the use of headsets etc to create a virtual sense of being inside the video game is merely a gimmick that has no long term place in the world of video games.

That may come across as a bold statement in this age of heavy investment into these types of projects but honestly I see VR being in the same arena as 3D, a gimmick that's fun for an hour but will end up giving you a headache!

Unless someone can come up with a solution that means that after a 3 hour session you don't feel like you are going to vomit, I just can't see it practically working for the video gaming masses.

Let's take a look back over the years and see what Virtual Reality has delivered to us in the way of short lived video games entertainment.....

☆ 

When I was young video games pup my video games collection was small and usually well researched so most of my games were quality games.

BUT every now and again I would be tempted by an untested unknown game that was going for a pocket money price. 

This usually resulted in the game being atrocious and me becoming ultimately disappointed. 

The thing is, once I owned a video game I felt compelled to play it to the end whether it was a terrible game or not. 

This led to me playing through some real awful games over the years that I really should have just walked away from on day one!
 
I've pulled together a list of Five Terrible Video Games That I Played Till The Bitter End! (sometimes the bitter end was me smashing up the cartridge / tape in disgust and frustration!)
