    "The Secret of Monkey Island is a classic adventure game that is really fun to play. It will help kids with literacy by reading and following a point and click adventure. I can highly recommend it as a retro game to play."

    "Megaman is so much fun to play. I love the throwback looking graphics and side-scrolling gameplay. It's a real blast from the past for anyone that grew up playing video games and loved Capcom. It has six original games and even though it looks old, it plays nice and smooth with the new game engine they have underneath and added features like the Museum Mode. The best part is you don't need $40 in quarters in your pocket to play."

    "I love sitting around and playing video games with my boys. It's a great way for us to spend time bonding and it engages us creatively. Recently we started playing Day of the Tentacle Remastered. They absolutely love this game. The tentacle and it's insane mission to take over the world make me think of Brain. It's good times."

    "I am always looking for retro style games to play with my kids and have the hardest time finding any. King's Quest was recommended by a friend. My kids did not have any interest in this game at all. The game mechanics were overly complicated and the story was lacking. I would not recommend this game."

    "If you wanna play some retro style Nintendo games from the NES days, you should definitely pick up the Disney afternoon collection! They got the old Chip and Dale rescues, DuckTales, and the Darkwing series! Super classic and fun stuff!"

    "I am a gamer and I love retro games. I have been introducing some of them to my kids and they just love Metal Storm. Yes, this is an old NES game from Nintendo and a lot of times it makes no sense, but it is a blast to play. You can even manipulate gravity! So make sure to share this with the current generation, they are different games , but they are still lots of fun."
