So, for the kids out there, the Famicom (short for Family Computer) – released in Japan in 1983 - was the forerunner to the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). So, if you kids enjoy your Wiis (huh huh…), then show some respect to the godfather of game consoles.
While that’s just my personal thoughts, the people of Famicom Flashbacks put that into practice. Based out of Sanford, Famicom Flashbacks are all over social media attempting to keep the memory of the consoles of yore alive.
Besides their blog, Famicom Flashbacks offers a weekly audio podcast through Podomatic featuring talk of their favorite retro games as well as the best in classic gaming music. On their YouTube page, you can see the team discuss some of their favorites. They also can be found contributing to local Retro Days, like the one hosted last Saturday by Play N Trade – Lake Mary. You can also follow them via Twitter and Facebook.
