Space Invaders. That was where it was at.

Yeah, does bring back some awesome memories of the good ol' days. Even so, the gaming industry's achievements today are pretty astonishing and overall I'd much prefer what's on offer today

Retro gaming is nothing new.

Super Potato has been around for many years. It's a subject of interest to me but I don't get why the article is framing it as some kind of recent phenomenon. Even the trend of companies such as Nintendo, Sony, etc. re-releasing old titles and providing backwards compatibility is not a new development.

I miss a lot of the old Atari and Commodore 64 games. Some I have on my computer, though I rarely have time to play, and a few I've gathered on my cell phone over the years. But many are still unavailable or are not free (I don't mind paying a BIT if it's a game I loved as a kid), though, and some you can't find. I also miss some of the old Sega Master System games like Alex Kid: Miracle World and Wonder Boy in Monster Land.

35 year-old Matt reckons that games started becoming popular when he 10.

That is a bit like me saying that girls started becoming attractive when I was about 13!

Games were popular before 1990, Matt.

What in the heck is Super Mario 3: Mario Forever???

They made that up.
