The Retro List

Postby drakkos » Mon Nov 05, 2012 9:50 pm

I love retro computing stuff - I guess a lot of it is nostalgia, but I think it's also fascinating to see how technology has evolved. With that in mind, I humbly offer up this topic for the accumulation of retro links that people have enjoyed!

Some blogs I have been enjoying:

The CRPG Addict - http://crpgaddict.blogspot.co.uk/
The Digital Antiquarian - http://www.filfre.net/

And another youtube channel - if you enjoy retro games or gaming, you absolutely must check this out - it starts a bit bland and dull, but becomes absolutely awesome when he starts interviewing developers and designers from Back In The Day@

Co-optitude - http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL ... uAOUU2iNcr

This is probably my very favourite thing on Youtube.
