Here’s the third entry of this column, a resume of what I bought last month.
This month had been quite strange, since I’ve been oriented toward many different consoles both old and modern and I ended up buying retro stuff, like Master System games and “modern” games such as the ones for the PS2.
Let’s face it, we’re all growing up and the consoles that we played as a teenagers are becoming old and fashionable: that’s the reason why this month I tried to get some good titles for PS1 and PS2 and to buy an actual PS1 which incredibly I still didn’t owned. I remember when I was in the first years of university that my frieds and I bought a third hand PS1 region free: it was already an old console since we’re talking about 2004-2005 but we were too poor to afford a PS2 so we fell back to the old PS1. Then when we graduated and we went each one on our own the PS1 suddenly disappeared: no one of us picked it up and it wasn’t in the basement. Vanished!
It wasn’t a big deal since by the beginning of 2010s it was a piece for a museum but since then I’ve never played again games on the PS1 (even though I still got the PS2 we bought together in 2013 🙂 ) so now I can start over again.
Other notable entries are some games for the Master System, which is a console that tend to be forgotten and overshadowed by Mega Drive or the Nintendo family. I’m growing fond of this machine and I’m trying to collect other defining games for it so you can expect news about it very soon 🙂
By now I tried to collect some of the most important games or (strange to say) games I already own for other platforms: this just to have a “base” of game to discuss in an upcoming column I plan to start in 2018 in which I will compare the sasme game in the different releases for different consoles. I’m still thinking about the name of the column so if you have some tips you’re welcome!
Most of the DS games I’ve bought this month comes from a second hand store I have a few kilometers away from home, where I’ve found some good games at a really low price.
Even though this month I wasn’t really focusen on NES games, I’ve found anyway a small haul of cartridges and among them my two favourites are by far Section Z and Xevious.
Of course, SNES games are part of the collection even this month, but I haven’t found something really interesting. However Popolous look one of the game I really could enjoy. If only I had time to play it…
