Which year was better for gaming? You decide!
We'll be kicking off 2018 by looking back 10, 20, 30, and even 40 years into the past.
Yep, it's one more call for listener mail this week. This time, the topic is a little more abstract… but long-time fans of the show will recognize the format. We're bringing back a long-forgotten Retronauts tradition by kicking off the new year with a look back at years past. It used to be that we touched on the games of 5, 10, 15 (etc.) years ago, but this time around we're going to stick to increments of 10. If nothing else, that guarantees we'll have reason to revisit this format for the next decade worth of podcasts!
As we mosey into 2018, Ray Barnholt and Jeff Green will be joining Bob and me this weekend to look back at the years 1978, 1988, 1998, and 2008. What major events took place in those years? What games debuted? How did they shape the future of gaming? We'll be exploring both the games of those years as well as some of the history surrounding them, and we'd love to hear your thoughts on their impact and whatever memories you have of those years of your life!
As always, drop me an email at jparish [at] retronauts [dot] com by end of day Friday (Dec. 1) and we'll try to include it in the episode. (You can also post a comment here, but I'll be prioritizing email messages since they're easier to sort through during a recording session.) Please try to keep your comments to around 200 words, if you'd be so kind.
