this is a fantastic collection of gaming through the atari-sphere. I loved how it includes games that even now are still out of many price ranges. And the videos are great looks back in time.


Best Compilation of 2022

VGChartz's Evan Norris: "For video game collectors, 2022 was a special time. Early in the year Sony packaged together two beloved, critically-acclaimed Uncharted titles in Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, remastered for the PS5 and PC with improved visuals and framerate. Over the summer, Nintendo fans were treated to Portal: Companion Collection, which brought Portal and Portal 2 to Switch, with all the mind-bending puzzles, superior voice-acting, and darkly humorous storytelling that earned the series a legion of fans on Xbox, PlayStation, and PC. Finally, video game preservationist Digital Eclipse turned in not one, but two remarkable anthologies, each with over a dozen games and an abundance of bonus features: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Cowabunga Collection and Atari 50: The Anniversary Collection.

But which of these won our inaugural award for Best Compilation?"

this is cool and all but i'm kinda sick of atari cashing in on its name and same list of games they've been pushing for 50 years. its literally not even the same company it used to be. its been bought and sold repeatedly, gutted, re-packaged. its just a brand name at this point. at some point the nostalgia wears off and you really need to make something new if you want to compete. i mean they've been re-packaging all these games for decades. like when was the last time they actually made a new, modern game? last i remember was the lynx or the jaguar systems - back in the late 80s/early 90s/


2022 Was A Watershed For Companies Taking Retro Compilations Seriously

Gamers have had plenty of retro compilations and collections come to consoles over the past few years, some of them mightily impressive, others incredibly lacklustre. While 2022 saw plenty of companies repackage old releases into pleasant nostalgia parcels, it also felt like the beginning of a new phase, with big names in the industry finally starting to realise the value — beyond the mere monetary — of investing in their history and letting talented developers present it with the care and attention it deserves.
