A few months ago we launched a weekly series entitled “Throwback Thursday” on our social media. Over the course of these posts, we showcased some of the experiences we had with the games we used to play when we were kids.
These publications compile lots of fond memories from the times when we were starting to discover titles, playing coop with our siblings and friends, enjoying playing online for the first time, roaming isometric RPGs, and jumping our way through our first platformers.
It is fascinating to delve into what made us into the gamers we are today and how this influenced our genre and gameplay preferences. As such, most of the respondents to the query gathering stories for the creation of Throwback Thursday have a sweet tooth for action and RPG games.
In the course of the series, our participants discussed the following games: Mario 64, Fortress 2, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, Spyro, Gothic, Super Mario World, Step On It, Monkey Island, World of Warcraft, and Baldur’s Gate.
