As many of you who have been following me on Twitter and YouTube will know, I’m an avid retro gamer! My collection from childhood has given me some great gaming experiences, which I’ll be sharing on the blog and in my videos. Over the years I have unfortunately sold quite a few classics, but I’m on a quest to re-build and improve my retro video game library.
Not many people were lucky enough to have experienced the Dreamcast during its heyday. Certainly not enough to stop SEGA’s final machine kicking the proverbial bucket well before its time. Those that did though, were treated to an amazing crescendo of classic games as SEGA bowed out of the hardware market for good. One of those games was Skies of Arcadia and I’d like to share with you why it’s not only one of the greatest games of the Dreamcast’s stellar goodbye line-up, but arguably the finest JRPG to have ever been made.
