GameInvasion Podcast – Episode 6 – Good Old Games

This week on GameInvasion, we talk about good old games that are hold the test of time. Unlike your host Carl Wilhoyte, video games editor of ScreenInvasion.com, Nick and Katie Hammer, and Nick Weber, these games have aged gracefully with a certain air of class and sophistication.

Games focus a lot on the new. In the era of digital distribution and ROM preservation, even the games of the ZX Spectrum and Commodore 64 are being saved, along with newer (but out of print) titles like the game we chose to honor.

 

 

Here’s links to some of the games we talked about:

NOTE: Some of these links are for ROMs. We tried in good faith to find legitimate sources for purchase of all of these games. In our opinion, the cultural preservation created by ROM archives are immensely important to the history of video games, and are quite frankly more important than a publisher missing the profits from a game they no longer feel the need to care about.
