What’s up party people!
We are officially at the end of 2019, June! Amazing how time flies by :O Hope you are all doing well, and playing games, or at least reminiscing or fantasizing about them (like me) hello darkness my old friend XD;
@archdruid wrapped up our 80s contest a couple of weeks ago, and we saw a whooping jump from only SEVEN entries for the 70s to NINETEEN for the 80s!!! AMAZING!!! That’s
OVER 9000!!!! over 170% of growth in our participation rate!!! MUCH THANKSNESS TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERED * ___ * You are all our heroes You Say Run from My Hero Academia plays in the background * ___ *
And so it is time to launch the next round in the theme: Gaming in the 90s !!!
THIRD ROUND: The 90s
- You are to create a post about a game from the 1990s :D
The 1990s was one of THE defining age for Gaming! Many said that the decade spanning from 1990 to 2000 were the age of INNOVATION for video games! New gaming tech was born, new gaming genres began, new gaming cultures took roots ! New spiders were sent to your homes !!! Whichever way, if you had played a game - ANY GAME - from the 1990s, this is a perfect opportunity to pay homage to a momentous decade in Gaming! C'mooooon you had to, there were so many games, like japan dude... STOP MAN WE HAVE ENOUGH AAAAAAA AAAAAAA AAAAAAA
- The post does not need to be about a game review or a video of actual gameplay!
You can do fanart, or fanfic, or commentary piece about a game's soundtrack, or a cosplay of a character from a game that was released in the 1990s, or photography post with your collection of oldie-but-goodie games, ... you get the idea, right? perhaps you can do a fanart of the fanfic about a gamer reviewer that takes photographies about her favorite games while doing a cosplay and listening to a soundtrack! ANYTHING GOES AS LONG AS THE POST HAS A RELATION TO A GAME RELEASED SOMEWHERE IN THE 1990s! We are opening up the playfield and we welcome Steemians of various genres to come and join the @archdruid's love for gaming!
