Those old enough to remember the 80s will recall an era of fluorescent socks, brick-sized mobile phones and terrible, terrible music.
But it was also a time of brilliant games. Videogaming was still a novelty in the 80s, and the decade saw the birth of many new genres, such as the platformer, the god-game and the beat-em-up.
The best titles were still to be found at the local arcades, but gamers keen for a fix back home could fire up high-tech computers such as the Sinclair Spectrum 48k, Commodore 64 or the Sega Mastersystem.
Making a list of the best games from that time that everyone will agree on is a practically impossible task, but we're having a go anyway.
We've gone for games that raised the bar, games that created genres and games that are still enjoyable to play even now.
Dave writes, "The Lamplighters League is an engaging and fun ride from start to finish. Its take on turn-based tactics is rewarding, while the compelling story is told through great voice acting and accompanied by an amazing score."
"The Dallas-based (Texas, the US) video games publisher Apogee Entertainment and Šempas-based (Slovenia) indie games developer Emberheart Games, are today super happy and proud to announce that their retro FPS spellcaster "Wizordum", is coming to PC via Steam EA on November 15th, 2023." - Jonas Ek, TGG.
NoobFeed Editor Daman Shelley writes - Deceit 2 is an excellent game that doesn't really feel like a sequel; the game is a much more refined version of the first game that has fleshed out many of the original mechanics and added even more. The gameplay is both equally fun and terrifying while fully immersing you in the experience.
