Nostalgia's not what it used to be...

demos, games, and history

…because these days you can relive the good/bad old days in HD(ish)! I’ll try to update this post as I find more ‘cool’ stuff. This is somewhat biased towards the UK, and specifically 8-bit eras, with some ’90s and early-web thrown in. My first machine just for me was an Amiga; so much celebration and nostalgia to be had there, it’s probably worth a separate article at some point.

These links come from both my own ramblings through cyberspace, as well as the recommendations of others (thanks!)
