Recently I stopped into my local video game store and one item caught my eye. RetroGen Adapter? “PLAY YOUR GENESIS GAMES ON YOUR SNES” Holy crap! It’s like a Super Game Boy, or that Colecovision expansion module that plays Atari 2600 games. I love things like that, and it would’ve been amazing to have one of these in the 90s, so I bought it right then and there on impulse, without going home to research it first.
I have something of a problem with video game pile-up, and have for years. Dozens of unplayed video games inhabit my shelves, easily spanning twenty or more consoles. Increasingly rapid price drops, along with what I consider to be a rise in the overall quality of games, have amplified this issue to a whole new level. My Xbox 360 library alone is a task of Sisyphean proportions, sporting nearly 40 titles that have never seen the disc tray. This year, that’s all gonna change. First up: Bayonetta.
