Damn that's a chill video. I liked and subscribed :ugeek:

A retro youtuber I really like got laid off and is trying to make a go of it at doing youtube full time so I thought I'd plug him. His name is Super Derek RPG and the dude is super sincere, you'll have to not worry about him being an unironic dork but he does indepth and heartfelt reviews of old RPGs and is a lot of fun. Here are a few of them:

Yeah he's become one of the youtubers I watch every video that comes out. His voice sort of takes some getting used to, but I realized it's just the way he talks, not an affectation. He seems like a nice guy

Also, this is cool, a remake of Alex Kidd in Miracle World:

I never played any Alex Kidd game back in the day, and they are a little fussy to really love now (imo) but they still always hit the nostalgia button for me "blue sky gaming" style.

I've got it on the Switch. I really liked it but I found it kind of hard! I need to get back into it, was truly beautiful and I loved how faithful a remake it was/that you can switch back and forth between the old graphics. It's basically the gold standard of a remake, for sure

Reactionary feelings in video games. Mostly preferring like Sonic and Alex Kidd style silly fun games with blue skies instead of endless murder sims like GTA or shooters

Basically it can be broadly broken down into:

Old games vs. New Games
Japanese vs. Western Games
Silly/Weird vs. realistic
Sega/Nintendo vs. Xbox

I would link you to the google answer but I don't like how it says "mixed-race gangsters" I can't tell if that means it's bad that they are mix-raced and I don't want to support dumb shit
