Retro Games Party…..

We love retro games!  We’re not talking about old board games but specifically stuff from the 1980’s and 1990’s.  We are obsessed with classic arcade games like Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Frogger etc as well as the classic consoles like the Atari 2600 and those home computers like the ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64.  We here at retro games party are on a mission to make sure nobody forgets that today’s games come from those of the past. Back in the 1980’s there was less graphics and more depth, computers weren’t just PC’s and Mac’s and you didn’t need to upgrade them for nearly every game you bought.  There were no DVD’s or CD’s – games came on cassettes and sometimes disks and you had to wait while the game was loaded into the computer before you could play it.  There was also a huge social thing, you’d go round to your friends house and play against each other. For some time, we’ve watched the games systems evolve to the point of near perfection but sadly while graphics quality has gone up, gameplay and addictive quality has gone down.  Are some games too easy to complete compared to their retro parents?  We see kids getting a new game for Christmas and trading it in at the local game exchange shop within a week?  Everybody plays online these days and with the threat of Sony’s anti-resale chip in their new PS4 you won’t even be able to take your £40 game to your friends house anymore. We can’t stop progress and sadly no time machines exist at the time of writing this so all we can do is revisit those classic machines and games.  They are easy enough to get your hands on for home and relive those memories of when coca-cola tasted better, Britain had a summer time and we used to play out in the streets.

It's 1986... You're stood on the sea front eating an ice cream and you can hear the noise of the arcade across the road beckoning you to spend your pocket money... Something you've gotten used to on your holidays from a few years ago when Pac-Man and Space Invaders dominated the arcade scene. read more...
