Whether you enjoyed curling up with Tetris on a Gameboy, rolling around as Sonic on a Sega, or were just trying to ignore the loud beeping sounds coming from the next room… if you were around in the 1980s and 1990s, you will totally love retro gaming collections.
Retro gaming is still a thing.
Computers had made it into our living rooms, and although fans had their favourites – the thrust of Street Fighter, the platforms of Super Mario or the simplicity of Pacman – children and adults alike were hooked. The market for consoles has continued to grow over the decades as technology companies across the globe try to get their bite out of the gaming pie. But almost 20 years into the new millennium, passionate players are still looking back in time to find their fix.
The world of Retro Gaming collecting is extraordinarily vast and ever-expanding. Tens of thousands of collectible gaming-related products are released every year, while a good number of those from years past have grown in value.
