I know classing consoles as “Retro” is a little lame, but I think it’s enough of a globally acknowledged category to be fitting.
I have been a gamer for years, and as such I learned on the retro consoles.
The Master System was my true love for years. Getting it for Christmas, it introduced me to some of the greatest games in existence: Alex Kidd in Miracle World, Sonic the Hedgehog, Operation Wolf. Without it’s influence, I probably wouldn’t be a gamer today. Damn you SEGA!
