RETRO REBOOT!! BUG! (Sega Saturn)

The concept of mascot characters for a platform game was a trope throughout the 90's to the point that it became funny. Sonic and Mario dumbed everything down to having a colorful animal character carry a game through success during the 16-bit era.

RETRO REBOOT!! Fester's Quest (Nintendo Entertainment System)

Fester's Quest is the perfect balance of a simultaneously decent game and a very frustrating one. I'll look back and fondly think, "I had some fun playing this one. Maybe I should pull this one of the shelf and give it a go". About six minutes in, after blowing up the 927th blue hopping frog that respawned IMMEDIATELY from the same pixel the previous…

RETRO REBOOT!! Mega Man X (Super Nintendo)

Whereas my modern opinions about Mega Man haven't particularly aged well, there was a period where the series was a very influential launching pad for not only making a 2D side-scrolling action platformer, but a formula for how to build a game that teaches the player progressive learning within gameplay while blending well paced action with good enemy…
