"Welcome to the home of Generation 16, the series that showcases the games of Sega's Mega Drive. My goal is to chronologically play and review every game released on Sega's greatest system, as well as outline some of the history surrounding the development of the games, the hardware, and the general goings-on of the video game industry back in the nineties.

Game Sack's latest is up:


Ahoy released a cool doco on the Amiga yesterday. The first half is depressing but things pick up when it gets to the games.

I like watching HappyConsoleGamer very week. I generally try to skew towards youtube channels that are positive and don't use their platform to shit on the latest game every week. The retro stuff is really good for that.

I also watch a lot of the MetalJesusRocks crew content. Radical Reggie has a good channel.

I Ordered Retro Games From GameStop In 2018...And This Is What They Sent Me

GameStop has been taking trade ins for retro games and consoles for a few years now and you can order games from their website. This leads to all types of issues with their orders and these have been pointed out several times in the past. I figured I would take a shot at ordering some items from them and see what they would send me.

The 31 Games That Made The Amiga Great

The Amiga was amazing. The Amiga is amazing. It made up a huge part of my formative years, and I will never stop adoring that big lunk. With an A1200 newly refurbished and specced up, and my OSSC to hand, I decided to work my way through the games that made the Amiga great - and I managed to narrow it down to a mere 31.

There are so many more I wish I could have included, but time is a concept and I don’t have much of it. North and South, I apologise.

I hate creepy collectors and people like Metal Jesus make me sick, more concerned about ownership than being able to actually play games... it's sad when they try to talk about games with their guests and it's 100% clear nobody on camera has any idea what the hell they're talking about and they care more about the game's rarity than it's gameplay...

I do love me some Gamesack and Classic Game Room though...

Staying With Power: 35 Years of NES History - Museum Tour

Helping plan and curate the museum at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo was one of my favorite things I’ve done this year. This video is the guided tour that we never quite got to give — with lots of history and extra information. I also included a bit about our planning process and challenges we faced at the end if that sort of thing interests you.

The History of Mortal Kombat

Mortal Kombat is as big a part of my childhood as anything. My brother and I would gather around the SEGA Genesis for hours at a time, mashing buttons trying to pull off the dreaded 'Fatality' finishing moves.

The Game Chasers 2018 Year End Rewind and HUGE Plans For 2019

HAPPY NEW YEAR

2018 was a busy year for us. While circumstances in personal lives made making Game Chasers more difficult, we did put out more videos overall than any other year. Here we dont hold back. it's not a highly edited video. just a casual discussion. We tell something other YouTubers won't, we make fun of ourselves, and we talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly of 2018. Not only that we talk about the future of 2019, Chasing the Unknown, the Game Chasers Motion Picture, and other goals we have.

Can you watch the whole thing? Challenge a friend.



LGR - Thrifts [Ep.41] Festive Findings

Join me as I go out thrifting, in search of games and interesting goods at various discount shops! Christmas may be over but the holiday spirit remains.



The Soulja Boy Handheld console (or so he thinks)

This is the updated version of the RS-97 otherwise known as the Retro Game. Or as a one hit wonder rapper, Soulja Boy would have you believe this is his own console.

Of course I didn't but the so called Soulja Boy version for an inflated price, oh no. this is the original Chinese version which you can buy from TomTop for half of what he was selling these for (I say was because all traces of the console have now been removed from his online store).



DREAMCAST: Sega's Fall From the Cutting Edge | GEEK CRITIQUE

Everyone knows the Sega Dreamcast was something special. But not everyone knows WHY. There have been many generations of gamers who never played ANY Sega console, let alone the last one. So to pay tribute to everything SEGA was, here's what it was like to be there for Sega's glorious dying breath.

Black Sheep Games - Game Sack

Episode 237 - Some games get a bad reputation simply because people expect so much more from a given series. But are these games really that bad??



Mario's Tennis retrospective: Doubles vision | Virtual Boy Works #01

Welcome to Virtual Boy Works! This brief journey through the entire worldwide library of Nintendo's least-beloved system begins here, with the Mario crew's first outing on the tennis court. It's a decent game whose flaws are outweighed by its strengths—a perfect example of the Virtual Boy itself, and a great example of this series' central premise: Virtual Boy may not have been a great system, but its library was better than most people realize.

The Game Chasers - Ep 73 A New Mission

It's time for the guys to hit up some flea markets in the dead of winter, because Chris is on a new mission, to track down all the games he used to play as a kid. But he also learns a new lesson, never trust anyone near a porta-potty...



The Legend of Zelda retrospective: The gold standard | NES Works #047

Nintendo's biggest and most consequential release for 1987, and one of the most important games of the year across all platforms, brings a newfound depth and maturity to the NES. Other ’87 releases have been flirting with the idea of merging action and role-playing concepts, but Zelda goes all-in with a sprawling, challenging journey across the land of Hyrule to rescue the princess Zelda and retrieve the Triforce of Power. And in the process, an instant classic is born.


The Micro Arcade Machine - Unboxing and review - NOT a NES

Introducing a new series: Game History Micro! Rather than always overloading you with a complete history, I wanted to mix it up and try a new format where I could talk about some of a subject’s most interesting stories.


Here's Why The Wii U Never Had A Chance (ft. BeatEmUps, Scott The Woz, Wulff Den, MVG)

The Wii U was the worst selling main home console for Nintendo in its history and despite having critically acclaimed games in its library, it failed to repeat even a fraction of the Wii's success. Today we are taking a look at what made the Wii U struggle, what made it great, and what's inside the odd console.
