Retro Domination is more than a website. It is a community of gamers dedicated to the gaming of old. They cover everything games, systems, and reboots. Retro Domination also has areas where gamers of other formats, such as analogue gaming (tabletop, board, CCG’s, et cetera) can come together and discuss gaming. It has expanded since its creation into a very inclusive hub for retrogaming.
ARCADE QUATERMASTER is about retro-gaming, but far more than that. The difference between other retro-gaming pages and this one would be like the difference between reading a book about the beginning of The Universe, and hearing a familiar cosmic churning sound, and The Doctor of your choice walks in and says, “Hey, wanna see something cool!!?” While many pages reminisce about those awesome 8 and 16 bit days, this is a 256 and 32, 768 living colour spiritual journey! It’s pictures and descriptions,contains the spirit of some of the biggest and heaviest hitting games of the 80’s and 90’s. *tear drops from eye.*
This is the Classic Games Online group’s treasure trove of classic Nintendo Entertainment System games! I know that most of you have fond memories with these gems!
This is the Flash emulated compilation site for TurboGrax-16 games, by Classic Games Online. The format was also known as the PC Engine, SuperGrafx, and TurboDuo in other parts of the world, and in revisions. While this system did manage a fringe cult following in the USA, it enjoyed much greater popularity in Asia and other parts of the world.
This is the Classic Games Online site for Flash emulated MSX and MSX2 games. MSX was an attempt at a unified DOS system in Japan by Microsoft of Japan and ASCII Corporation. Before the Nintendo Famicom rose to power, this was the chosen format for Japanese gaming from such giants as Konami and Hudson Soft, who would eventually team up with NEC to make the PC Engine.
At one time I envisioned making a video game channel devoted my my life as a SEGA fanboy. I thought that as a twist, it would be interesting if it would have a charming olde English theme to it, kind of like the old Masterpiece Theatre episodes that I would watch on PBS. Then I find an actual Brit who does it and far more charmingly than I probably ever could! Yes, Top Hat Gaming Man does all of this and more! Top Hat Gaming man covers all of the systems of the past, but also gives us the perspective of a lifelong gamer from the UK, such as the affect that the ZX Spectrum had on gaming there, rather than the Nintendo Entertainment System.
This is the definitive YouTube channel about the SEGA Saturn and SEGA enthusiasm in general. SEGA Lord X is a lifelong SEGA fan and collector shares gives facts and history about SEGA, while sharing his deep and intense love for it, as well. SEGA Lord X’s videos does great research, often pulling information from videos from other very reputable YouTubers, as well as research from many other hard to find sources. When you watch his channel, you are actually watching many of the very best SEGA channels as well, as I learned this from my exhaustive watching of YouTube for anything SEGA. SEGA Lord X also shares the wealth, as every now and then he will host giveaways as he continues to gain new viewers and subscribers.
Retromags is a site with a great premise. Retromags archives and uploads classic video game magazines to the internet for the public to download and read for free. The site is non-profit, which in itself is very cool, and providing classic gaming magazines for the generations of today is a true service. Nowadays we take certain things for granted, like how the Sega CD and 32X were such terrible ideas; this is only in hindsight. The magazines made at that time show that everyone was excited about any new gaming systems and accessories. For the most part, the only people that didn’t get these video game items were people that couldn’t talk their parents into buying them. In any case, I digress…Retromags is a very cool site.
