Classic Gaming

Simply the Best!

This is Dorit-Samantha Vaknine here; I am dedicating this article to my love of Classic Gaming. My favorite Classic gaming console is the Game Boy.

HISTORY

The first original Game Boy console came out in 1989; it was a new revelation to have a console that was handheld and you could carry it in your bag, anytime anywhere! The most popular games of that era were the one and only Super Mario Bros: Land and Golden Coins (2 great retro games!).

A Fangirl Weekly Discusion: CRTL+SHIFT+Paradigm= 8-BIT Beauties

8-bit nintendo

 

Remember the first game you ever played? I do! The first game to capture my heart was Mario Brothers for the Nintendo Entertainment System. The frustration I felt when Princess Peach was not in the castle and joy of defeating Bowser consumed every moment of my free time. Being a woman I found that I could not let the job of saving a damsel fall to the hands of men. That is when I moved on to a bigger game. The Legend of Zelda became my mission and obsession. As these two characters grew throughout the years they evolved from weak women to the beautiful femme fatales that rocked the industry.
