That Olde Tyme Gaming Itch…

Someone out in Daegu recently blew my mind by asking for N64 games. In case you’ve been living under a rock, had uber protective parents, or simply suffer from bad taste, Nintendo 64 (hence, N64) is easily one of the greatest gaming systems ever put together – and proof that civilization is NOT going downhill.

What could possibly make me such a rabid fan of an “outdated” system? One game, and one game only: Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Hunt one down and give it a whirl. If you’re still in doubt after multiple hours of glorious single-player questing, shoot me a message. I will gladly school you.

It’s important, though, that we stay on topic; namely, “scratching” the itch. Out here in South Korea, they’ve got plenty of good stuff to fiddle with, if you don’t mind the “new” and “improved” versions of PS and Xbox. Older stuff? Well, that’s going the way of the dinosaurs in the U.S., and is naturally harder to find.

Assuming you’re in Daegu and on a quest of your own, here’s one place you can try: 88 Game Land (88게임랜드). The name seems to have changed from 88 Game Plaza. It’s on this street, Gukchaebosang-ro(국채보상로), and it’s near the 2.28 movement memorial park, in downtown Daegu.

Here’s a photo link for a little extra help:

The best of luck, and happy hunting my friends.
