The SEGA Genesis is easy to pick on but it had some killer games. Desert Strike is a unique blend of strategy and action as resource management and planning are just as important as your reflexes. It’s a tough game, but it holds up so well I’m enjoying banging my head against it today.
Mathew is a huge fan of Space, Strategy, and Shadowrun (Genesis version is #1). When it comes to games and films, he’d much rather experience a 10/10 classic from yesteryear than a 6/10 modern blandfest. He does feel we’re living in a gaming golden age with the power of indie developers at an all-time high, but wishes AAA publishers would take more risks. Mat believes it’s only a matter of time before the pendulum swings the other way and new ideas take their rightful place above reboots.
