Our Story

Nida sold original video game consoles and old-school games on eBay and via a small online store back in 2005. She won the Nintendo Championship at Blockbuster when she was 14. She’s been a gamer since she was six. Nida grew up with Nintendo & SNES while Marcus grew up with Genesis & SNES, and they both love different types of retro games. So Nida started Retro Games Now as a way to share her hobby and passion for retro gaming with others. Retro is in the title and you will see plenty of old-school games, but modern titles that have relevance or history will appear as well.

Marcus is a video game designer graduate and is currently developing his own video game. He currently works as a social media assistant for Retro Games Now (RGN) website. 

They game every evening as a couple. In their spare time, they enjoy playing games on their Switch, NES Classic, PS4, and Xbox.

We Do Things Differently

Retro Games Now is the original and only site of its type

Retro Gaming has been making a comeback with newer systems like the Nintendo Switch and NES Classic, which means there’s an increasing demand for news and reviews from people who grew up on these older consoles. Retro Games Now is here to meet that need!

Our reviews are thoughtful and informative

When it comes to making a purchase, customers appreciate thoughtful and informative reviews. This is especially true when it comes to video games, which can be expensive investments. By taking the time to write thoughtful and well-informed reviews, Retro Games Now is helping its customers make the best possible purchase decisions. In addition to providing an overview of the game, our reviewers also take the time to discuss things like graphics, gameplay, and replay value.

We’re a unique voice in today’s saturated market

In a world where everyone seems to be saying the same thing, businesses with a unique voice stand out and benefit from it.

Retro Games Now has a unique voice, and it’s one that gamers are sure to appreciate.
