Let’s Go Toobin’!
I long for the days of chatting about video games on the playground during recess. We didn’t need websites or magazines to tell us which titles were worth renting or purchasing, because we just went off our friend’s judgment’s and experiences. We didn’t need a whole essay explaining the technical aspects of the latest & hottest game to hit stores because some kid named Larry, who was in the grade above us, mind you, just told everyone that the game “sucks ass”. That was enough for the whole school to overlook many titles throughout our adolescent years, even though I always had a suspicion that Larry didn’t even play video games. Other than suspicious game reviews, playground talk often revolved around hidden secrets, cheats, and plenty of nudity codes that never seemed to work. Sadly, at least for most of us, that amazing playground banter has been replaced with water cooler chat of company cutbacks and TPS reports.
But fear not, my nostalgic friends! Other gamers who also miss talking about the classics have found a way keep the discussions going through the magic of YouTube! Thankfully, these YouTubers have invited us into their own homes to fill our nostalgic needs in a way that no other medium, not even cable television, is able to accomplish. I want to take just a bit of your time and share what I believe are the best 6 retro gaming YouTube channels that offer the best content. Yep, I couldn’t pick just 5 so give me a break!
