WELCOME TO THE RETRO CLUB
There a hundreds of video games out there that represent a significant piece of gaming history and many of these are still relevant and fun for even the most experienced of gamers. This group project will help us all explore the best games history has to offer while collectively sharing our experiences with each other.
In order to have both an organized “game plan”, I thought a retro gaming club (similar to a book club) would be a nice solution to help grow the community, and spice up the video games section.
The main concept of this project is to have a designated game that every participant would play over a pre-determined period of time. Once everybody has spent time playing the featured game, everyone can give their thoughts on what they liked or disliked about the gameplay, how it holds up to today’s standards, and how it influenced later games. You can also share high scores and help other members with tactics you have learned. Even with well-known games, devoting some time to them again could give us a fresh perspective and help us re-discover some fun moments from our past.
The time devoted to each game may vary depending on its complexity or length. A week may be enough time to spend on simple games like Pong or Asteroids, but more complex or story-driven games like Metroid or Chrono Trigger may require two weeks for most people to fully experience.
With each featured game selection, there will be a bit of background information, links to helpful guide or tips, and some goals that might be worth achieving. Everyone will then be invited to jump right into the game and share their thoughts as we progress through it together.
If there is a game you wish to be featured, please PM me any ideas you have
GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN!
It is common to hear of a peasant's dream of striving for knighthood as an
escape from hardship, but who would ever think it possible?
