It seems like we were introduced to two button console controllers a lifetime ago
In a time when a game cartridge could transport us to a pixelated world of wonder
The low rez graphics meant we had to imagine what the characters would look like in real life
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and for those who love classic games pixels are a thing of beauty
Gaming was once thought of as something only guys enjoyed, but now we know better
People also used to believe that video games had to be action packed to appeal to gamers
But now we know that video games are fun no matter what the genre
And they're more fun to play with friends
Video games have come a long way from the early days, and yet some things never change
Your character still needs a bad guy to battle, and a partner to help them out
Sometimes the second banana gets their own title
Which helps further flesh out the virtual world in which our favorite bros exist
And proves just how enduring, and influential, that super series has been
You know a game is great when characters from other games try to cross over!
Battle is a big part of our favorite games, and whether it's a breeze or the character's doom
Gamers love it when those destructive slugs start to fly!
Although some prefer a more antiquated way of battling foes
Preferring to punch out their foes with their fists rather than mowing them down with a gun
For those fantasy pugilists there's nothing better than a fighting game
Whether battling a team in the ring or blasting away at a team in a fortress online
Video games have come a long way from the days of chucking papers and dodging angry dogs
Nowadays even the simplest looking games are simply spell binding in terms of storyline
Telling the tales through gameplay that we used to have to read about in the manual
When old school games are brought back their storylines are often changed in funny ways
And humor abounds in modern games created and developed by independent designers
Games are embracing the surreal now more than ever before
And yet the classics will always seem a bit stranger in some ways
As is the idea of shoving a cartridge inside a hungry console's mouth
But without the influence of the classics we wouldn't have the games we know and love today!
