A appear at a gaming scene hardly ever touched upon in Retronauts.

We right here at Retronauts are mostly Americans. Diamond Feit is an American in Japan, and Stuart Gipp is British. And that proper there quite a lot encompasses the span of Retronauts’s capacity to speak to the worldwide classic gaming market place: An American viewpoint that touches on Japan and the U.K.

These are not the only locations in the planet exactly where individuals like video games, nevertheless! We’ve been remiss in exploring these other regions, simply because we cannot speak to them from practical experience or 1st-hand know-how. That does not imply we do not want to. I am keenly conscious that, for instance, Brazil has had a thriving games scene considering that the eight-bit era. I’d appreciate to know much more about Korean gaming. And I comprehend that we have a tendency to conflate “Europe” and “the U.K.,” even although these are two quite various markets.

So, my hope in the coming months and years is to repair this shortcoming of the podcast by speaking to much more individuals from outdoors our core territories and understanding much more about their experiences. To start with, I’ve recorded a short conversation with Thomas Nickel of M! Games about his personal experiences as a game enthusiast developing up in Germany, and how the German classic games scene has evolved.

I do not know that Thomas’s experiences translate to all German gamers (I rather doubt it!), but it is a fantastic start off on bringing a much more worldwide view to Retronauts.
