Video games are unlike any other from of entertainment. They are developed to be played continuously and new games will be coming out to supersede the old ones regular. The same song, film or book will be enjoyed by people over and over but with games a new installment can replace them. You can also spend many more hours on them, with some games never having definitive endings so they can be endlessly played. One thing any classic media has is common though is if they are popular, they will come back. Films may be remade and songs covered and games have new installments or simply released on new consoles allowing them to be played be a new generation.

 One of the ways how retro games can be enjoyed again is with online stores. Normally, if you wanted to play an older game you would have to track it down, which could prove difficult and expensive. Now though, any game can be re-released on PC or console. Go onto Steam, the PS Store, the Xbox Store or the Nintendo eShop and you can find many classic games. You can try out games from the previous generation all the way back to the earliest games. This allows people to play games that existed from before they were born or things they remember when they were younger. If you want to try Donkey Kong Country, Final Fantasy I-IX, Metal Gear Solid and more you can now download them through official online stores no problem. This means retro games can be played by everyone and they’ll never go away.

 Casino games have had a long history as video games. Every generation of consoles would have multiple games based on blackjack, poker, roulette slots and much more. LCD casino games were also common. With the advent of greater technology and the internet though, casino games remain a prominent part of video gaming. Online casinos such as Red Flush all you to play the most popular table games around on their website. They will feature modern graphics, ideas and online functions allowing you to play any type of cards, roulette or slot game you remember but in a new way.

The internet has also had a large impact of retro games. Adding online features to classic games opens up new dimensions that they never previously had. Street Fighter II for example was an arcade staple as you would battle against friends and rivals in the arcade, with the winner staying on. Playing at home could never recreate this experience but online play does. You can now play Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix against players all across the world. This means there’s always new people to fight and a high quality of competition. Casino games such as those from Red Flush also do this as you can play and bet against the world, rather than just AI opponents, giving you an authentic experience.

Retro games will be around forever and with new technology, they’ll always have something new.
