If you’re like us, then you are probably shaking out of a turkey-induced coma and getting back into routines and the normal life. For some of us, that means walking and not running off into the work week. To help get us return to the swing of things, we like to spend some free time casually playing some old school, retro games with them clunky old 8-bit graphics.
Face it, as much as we love getting into first person shooters and immerse 3D games, sometimes we just need a bit of ol’ fashion to feel better. Along those lines, here are eight titles that we have really enjoyed as of late.
We understand that there are hundreds of other games out there that you might like as much, if not better. If there’s an 8-bit game that you really love, please let us know in the comments below.
