Yeah, this was inspired by Syd Lexia’s “Fun With Search Engines,” or FWSE for short. In these, Syd makes fun of searches that lead people to the site, so I thought it would be fun to do the same thing. Now, I only have four searches, but whatever.
I published all the articles from my old blog, retrogamingisbest.wordpress.com, onto my current blog. The reason is that when I made my site popcultureheaven.webs.com, I wanted to move all my articles onto my site. Why? Because, even though my first website was back in 2008, every site and blog I made I gave up on and deleted. However, Retro Gaming Is Best was the first blog I truly paid attention to. I really thought that RGIB was going to be the website I stuck with and I stayed with it for over three months. However, I decided I wanted a website that was about more than video games, and thus I deleted the site and Pop Culture Heaven was born. Before deleting the blog, though, I wanted to save those articles because they were the beginning of my blogging. However, I only made one article and some forums, and then it was eight months of no activity, so guess what I did? I deleted Pop Culture Heaven, today. I brought my articles from RGIB over to here because of how important to me they are. And my article from PCH? It was a review of Yoshi’s Island. It wasn’t anything special, so I didn’t even bother bringing it to my blog. Anyways, you may be gone, but I’ll never forget you, RGIB. Without you, I wouldn’t be blogging.

Well, I saw this book at both Borders and Barnes and Noble, and I gotta say, it looks amazing. Yes, it contains games from the modern era, but it also has games from the 70′s, 80′s, and 90′s. I read a little bit of it and I love it.

Well, it’s been over a month since my last article, so I decided it’s time for a new one. This one is about good music from classic video games, and I hope to have this as a recurring feature. However, I am not going to go into detail about how it is made, or anything like that. I am simply going to post a video from YouTube with the song and give a brief summary of why I like it. Here we go:

You see, that’s a very interesting question, because no one seems to agree on an accepted “age” for a game to be retro. Well I am going to explore that with this article.

This might create a little controversy, considering how everyone seems to think that Tetris is the greatest puzzle game ever, but in my opinion, those people are wrong. There are two puzzlers I like more than Tetris, and they are Wario’s Woods and Dr. Mario. I’ll get to Wario’s Woods in another article. Now, I love Tetris and recognize it as one of the greatest games ever, but in my opinion, Dr. Mario is a better game and I will explain why.

Looking at that title, you may be wondering what I mean. Do I mean different as in graphics capabilities or CD’s being preferred over cartridges? No, I mean different in terms of quality. Now this isn’t going to be a rant on how modern games and the people who play them are stupid, because I actually enjoy a lot of current generation games. No, this is an article explaining that I enjoy classic video games more. That may seem weird considering I’m only sixteen years old and most people my age prefer more recent hits such as Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Modern Warfare, and Halo, but the fact is I just prefer older games.
