About RetroGaming with Racketboy

The video game industry has shown us decades of art and innovation. It is easy to get lost in the hype, stumble over missed attempts, and miss out on hidden gems.

Retrogaming with Racketboy is an attempt to make sense out of the noise that is contained in this rapidly changing world of gaming. We want you to be able to spend time with the games and hardware that are fulfilling instead of getting overwhelmed.

Instead of focusing purely on the latest that the industry has to offer or only the high-profile titles, we look to savor what its history has to offer. We want each visitor to be able to easily find a guide or conversation that will help them steer their gaming collection and lifestyle in a way that serves them best.

While we spend a lot of time on console gaming, we also enjoy arcade and personal computer gaming as well. We intend to broaden our content while staying true to our goals.
