God, I'm getting old. I still remember the pré-1991 days when "legal" copies ran amok!

Nop, new games, just like before bit overpriced...

New era with mobile/tablet gaming should teach us what power lies in macro pricing... (selling a lot at lower price)

Still owning way too many games...

I thought that it would be great to compile Pixel THING's Episodes 55 and 56 into one, now that 2016 E3 is just around the corner.
So, if you missed those, here you have my 1-hour-long E3 20 Year Retrospective with some of the greatest announcements ever on the history of video gaming!
Enjoy!

Nice videos Iam RetroNuts on You Tube.I think all games are over priced,I buy second hand games from Game or CEX.

The only SE games I will buy will be for the Amiga or C64,not todays games.

True, but, by 1984, the industry was just making its first steps, at least in Europe
By then, in Portugal piracy ruled, and games would cost around 1 Euro 'til the end of the 80s. By mid 90s, PC games would cost around 50 Euros and console ones around 60 or 70. Now, that was a huge jump!
