I’m back it again, and this time we’ve got a playlist that sprang from a tweet I saw reminiscing about GameBoy games.
For the life of me, I can’t find the original tweet, or else I would embed it here, but it went something like this: UPDATE: I found the original tweet that sparked this idea!!
here's an old comic about link's awakening! I made this for Chainmail Bikini 4 years and nearly 900 pages of comics ago and I stand by it. pic.twitter.com/etvVBz3Cz0— Carey Pietsch (@careydraws) February 14, 2019
That statement really got me thinking. Some of today’s AAA games can be huge (Gears of War clocking in at over 350GB with all of its DLC). But somehow, even simple 1-color games could evoke some serious emotional connections for people. And I think there is something beautiful in that. And I think it’s worth noting that many people still play these older games, some even for the first time, on emulators because they can’t get ahold of the physical hardware anymore. Great stories and adventures can transcend the number of bytes needed to contain them.
Adventures come in all shapes and sizes. There’s so much out there! Even the smallest places are bigger than you might think. Inspired by classic video games and feel-good vibes, this playlist is perfect for your next big (or little!) adventure!
