RetroMagazine World #6 – Eng – March 2021

Editorial by Mic “The Biker” Novarina

Memories of a past present
The dim light of the lamp illuminates the room as shivering shadows of the evening pass swiftly over the walls. Life can be strange sometimes: one joke leads to another and here I am writing my first editorial for this fantastic magazine. I followed it for a long time because in my opinion it represents, in the video game scene, the painting on canvas of the current artistic current known as “Retrogaming”; therefore I let you
imagine that sense of amazement mixed with joy that pervaded me at the time when I was asked if I had enjoyed joining the team. I see myself sitting on the old desk at home in those magical eighties while, lost on some eight-bit screen, I imagined what the future of gaming machines would be and more. Precisely in this issue we find an exhaustive paper about the beautiful SHARP X68000 system, which for me stood at home computers as the PC Engine stood at gaming consoles: it was a dream. In those glittering eighties the portable games appeared with the beautiful but unmanageable Atari Lynx and the less colourful but much more effective Nintendo Game Boy.
