Home video games
30 years made them ikemen(handsomegood‐looking)!!!!
This is the first high‐performance home video game and had released many arcade games.
And it was the first home video game using CD-ROM.
So many bishojo and moe games had released!!
Mega Drive had released many unique games!!
In Japan, they sometime called “バカゲーBakage(unique or poor games)” with love!!
But had also released many masterpieces!!
I think that Mega Drive was the most aggressive home video game in Japanese game history!!
Neo-Geo made it possible to play just the same arcade game in home!!
(If we wanted to play arcade game in home, we had to buy arcade system board till then.)
In this age it was The Golden Age of fighting game in Japan!
Great fighting games had been born!!
King Of Fighters!!!!!!!
As I love fighting games, I used to play them like a madman!!(In Japanese “廃人Haijin”)
If I had Neo-Geo in this age, I may have become ひきこもりHikikomori(don’t work and stay home all day)…..
There are many other games and all of them are freely available!
We can also experience game sound with our hand.
Musical score of Salamander!!
Its game music is super coooooooool!!!!!
If you are “懐古厨Kaikocyu(nostalgia fag)”, let’s go this exhibition and feel “昔は良かった・・・Mukashi wa Yokatta(good old days…)”
But we should take care not to be said “老害Rougai(trouble caused by old people)”
