LTTP or ‘late to the party’ pieces are opportunities for me to catch up and write about games I missed out on the first time around. They may contain spoilers.
Time machines aren’t real but everyday people like you and I have managed to find our way back to the past through entertainment mediums such as movies, TV shows and even games. Of all the mediums available to us though, I believe games can be the most effective time machines.
The Fullbright Company’s Gone Home was an adventure game that brought me back to 1995. The 1990s was brought to life through CRT TVs, VHS tapes, Super Nintendo carts and posters featuring the cast of 90210. Hand written notes, post cards and A/V equipment review magazines reminded me of slower times. It was a convincing and nostalgic trip back in time and I loved every minute of it.
