The Besties: The Video Game Required Reading List: 1985-1989 [Resties]

An illustration of a white trophy with four black figures. One is lifting the bottom of the trophy, another is waving from the top, another is climbing the handle, and the last figure is standing next to it with its arms outstretched. The background is gold. There is a light yellow light shining out from the trophy. Above it says, “The Besties” in black serif font with an orange laurel on either side.

The Resties Required Reading List returns! Our goal is to curate and contextualize a “must play” list of 25 games released between 1980 to 2020. This week, we’ve selected games from 1985-1989. Join us as we time travel to the premieres of mega-franchises like Mario, Zelda, Metroid, and Tetris. Let us know what you think of the series and your personal reading list at @thebestiespod on Twitter.
