Today on BEYOND THE STACKS, I talk to Matthew Rothfuss, who is a historian and a classic video game enthusiast and also a colleague here at BAPL. The topic for the day is vintage video games and the upcoming Retro Arcade that we are hosting at the library with the Alternative Gallery on April 14th. We talk about our favorite videogames including a lively debate on Metroid vs. Super Metroid. (Somehow we forgot to discuss Burger Time, which came up after we turned off the mics and is really the greatest sandwich-making video game of all times.) So if you like Atari or were unlucky enough to own the Intellivision, this is the podcast for you! Listen below and definitely come to the Retro Arcade on the 14th to relive your youth!!
