Retronauts Episode 503: Years in Review Revue: 1983 & 1993
From console crash to console WAR
Don't panic; it's not 2023 yet, even though we've already begun to look back at major anniversaries in 1973 and 1983 on our exclusive Patreon feed. Host Jeremy Parish and pals didn't quite blurt out everything they wanted to say in that episode, so this week they're closing the book on 1983 and then continuing on to 1993.
Quite a few topics that come up in their discussion have already been the subject of their own dedicated Retronauts episodes, so if you're looking for more information about SwordQuest, Doom, Samurai Shodown, Myst, or Star Fox, by all means treat yourself by clicking those links I just posted.
For now, please enjoy Jeremy's conversation with Benj Edwards, Kevin Bunch, and Jared Petty as they conclude their console conversation of 1983 (a major topic given that Sega and Nintendo both launched historic hardware on the very same day) before diving into the major releases of 1993. And remember to always DO THE MATH!
Description: Jeremy Parish, Jared Petty, Benj Edwards, and Kevin Bunch continue their conversation from four episodes ago, wrapping up the highlights of 1983 before diving into the best and most earthshaking games and events of 1993.
