21 Things Every Retro Gamer Needs In Their Life…

Atari, Nintendo, SEGA, PlayStation….big or small we love them all! Growing up, like many of the kids we knew we were totally in love with the latest video games.
Nothing was more exciting that button bashing Street Fighter, helping Mario save the Princess (or die trying at least), or perhaps even being chased around the screen by Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde.

It wasn’t all about the latest graphics, the best in game physics, HUD, or even having the biggest free world to roam around in. Retro gaming was purely about raw fun which is what many of the classic gave us by the bucket load.
