Retro Gamer is the world’s only magazine dedicated to old-school videogames. In August last year, they launched a new (much more interactive) website, including a user review section (Cryptically titled “Retrobates”).
At this stage, I’ve written about a dozen reviews. They cover a mixture of arcade games, ranging from the most famous, to the somewhat obscure. The well-known games are the hardest to review. It’s really tough to approach the game in a different way to anything you’ve read before.
But I think I’ve managed to write some fairly interesting content. One of my reviews (Outrun) was nominated “Game of the Week” a few months ago, which was nice.
You can click on any of these screenshots, to jump to the corresponding review.
Each review has a comment section.
(You’ll just need to do a quick registration with RG’s website… don’t worry, they don’t spam.)
Love to hear your thoughts! Did I surprise/inspire/bore you?
Oh, and if you find any other reviews on the RG website that you think are particularly well written (even if you wrote ’em) feel free to leave a link below. 🙂
