Welcome to our 70th birthday party. This is Next Gen News, CraveOnline’s weekly gaming podcast with your hosts Joey Davidson, Alex Keen and myself, Erik Norris.
First order of business: sorry for the lack of episode last week, but Joey and his wife were busy ushering their first child into this world. So, you know, that kind of took precedence, and big congratulations are in order!
OK, now it’s time to get down to brass tacks. For this 70th anniversary bash we’ve decided to take a trip back into the past and discuss what our biggest gaming influences were. These were the titles that showed us what video games can aspire to be and helped mold our expectations for today’s industry. Listen in for discussion about Yars’ Revenge, Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Resident Evil, Halo and Metal Gear Solid.
