Over the past few months I've been really hooked on Retro Gaming channels in YouTube. And many of these guys create really professional video's too.

My current favourites at the moment are:

Nostalgia Nerd - https://www.youtube.com/user/nostalgianerdvideos
The 8-Bit guy - https://www.youtube.com/user/adric22
Lazy Game Reviews - https://www.youtube.com/user/phreakindee
The Obsolete Geek - https://www.youtube.com/user/robivy64

So, what's yours?

I rather enjoy watching Alex's videos on the Nintendo Arcade, his arcade games room visits are great watching.

A recent discovery is "This Does Not Compute"

Talks in depth about retro gaming - often on a deeper, more technical level - and does fixes, reviews and lots on handhelds.

recently discovered this channel https://www.youtube.com/user/XboxAhoy

he doesn't do videos very often but they are really top quality.

also kim justice https://www.youtube.com/user/elmyrdehory

the channel covers a lot of topics that doesn't get mentioned much on other retro gamer channels, like for instance videos on football games or old developers/publishers that are uk based.

We know Kim well, she writes for the mag now :D

Incredible amount of research goes into some of the topics, and covers eras well before her time in an appropriate manner, with none of the age bias that often creeps into amateur presentations like this.
