Imraan is the name and retro gaming is my thing.
I have been playing computer games at a young age. My first game console was Sega Master System 2 with Alex Kidd built in. Ever since then I have been playing computer games.
A good few years ago I walked into a retro game shop called retro game base and that inspired me to collect retro games and consoles.
So now I have the following consoles:
Sega Master System 2
Sega Game Gear
Nintendo Game Boy
Nintendo Game Boy Pocket
Sega Mega Drive
Sega Multi Mega
I play the retro games more than the ps4 games as I enjoy playing them and also bring back childhood memories.
I have got quite a collection of games that I would like to review and share it to the rest of the world.
My favourite retro games system will have to be the second games console that I owned which was the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES).
Reason for this was because of street fighter 2 the world warrior. SNES was the first home console to get street fighter 2 and it was an arcade perfect, you could play all day and night without inserting coins. Free game play. I just found that amazing.
Remember when my brother and sister came home that night with the super Nintendo and came with street fighter 2. I was full with excitement, couldn’t wait to play.
It got to the point where my brother would have to pack the console away as I use to play a lot.
Also another reason is that SNES graphics, sound and control pad more superior and better then the Sega megadrive in my opinion. The control pad was perfect for the hand and the buttons was easy to use. Also was a perfect control for street fighter 2 and other fighting games. Whereas the megadrive you needed to purchase a 6 button pad or was stuck with the 3 button pad.
SNES had a fantastic library of games such as Super Mario World, which I say is still the best Mario game till this day, Donkey Kong, Mario Kart, Mortal Kombat, Super Ghouls n Ghosts, Starwing and F-zero.
Till this day I play the Super Nintendo more than any other console that I own. Even play it more than the ps4.
