8-bit Retro Love!

I loved growing up during the 8-bit 80s. Nintendo really shined during this time, no one was even close.


For all of you guys out there who were around during the 80s, you gotta remember the 8-bit video games. The 8-bit sprites and music is something that Nintendo created back then and are still loved to this day. I remember growing up with the original Nintendo (NES) video game console and really getting into the 8-bit music. The music was so simple back then. You had square waves and hi-hats and the music sounded great for such few instruments. I feel that during this time, you had to work a lot harder to create music with so few instruments available. Doing a lot with very little showed how skilled the video game music composers were at this time.

This is one my favorite songs back then, I’m sure that a lot of you remember this song:

People still love the 8-bit retro era so much that there are video games out there that pay tribute to the past:

There is also a band called Anamanaguchi. They mix 8-bit music (chiptunes) into their music and did the soundtrack to the Scott Pilgrim video game.

Here is one of their songs:
