The retro Meripodcast team recounts how certain games lived around the summer and our best memories
After last week, in which it was time to address current affairs with The Last of Us Part 2, a game that has starred in the discussion around the video game these weeks, and playable first impressions with Cyberpunk 2077, which promises to star in the end of 2020 along with the new consoles, it is the turn of the retro team to do what they know how to do best: look at the past with affection.
We are in the middle of summer, atypical due to circumstances, but summer and from the Meripodcast Retro team we wanted to take advantage of that excuse to look back on our best summer memories as video game lovers. We will talk about games like Out Run, Worms, Axelay, Golden Ax or Final Fight among others, not because of what they represent in the history of the medium, but because of what they represent in our own personal history, so closely linked to the video game.
Coastal arcades, visits to grandparents in remote towns with little to do, and especially time ahead, which is surely what we most appreciate about those eternal summers that opened before us when we finished school and our obligations were reduced to a minimum : days, weeks and months in which we could dedicate ourselves body and soul to enjoying the video game, without suspecting that in the future we would not have it so easy nor would we have the time or the absence of worries that we enjoyed then.
Join us on our journey to the past, and do not hesitate to comment on networks or YouTube your own experiences so that we can share them around what unites us: a good video game and the desire to enjoy it.
