Videogame Virgin: Donkey Kong and strange comforts

(Editor’s note: In this bi-weekly feature, Pixelitis staffer Matt Brown shares his “down the rabbit hole” look into gaming history. Having admittedly missed what many consider “classics,” join him as he dives in head first. We ask that you just be gentle with him.)

"Of all the games in 100 Computer Games to Play Before You Die, so far I haven’t come across too many that I had already played. And among that number, even fewer that I had any sort of emotional connection to, pleasant or otherwise.

So the original Donkey Kong is a pleasant addition to this series for me."

- Matt Brown (Culture, Donkey Kong , Nintendo, Retro)
