The Summer of 16-bit wouldn't be complete without a focus on one of our favorite genres: role playing games! This generation was certainly formative for the genre, some would even say its best. But we say there is more to love in the 16-bit world of RPGs than Final Fantasy!

The podcast goes old-school this week as we compare our favorites from the 16-bit generation of video games! Pernell steps into the ring with killer music from the Super Nintendo. Rob wields a +16 critical Genesis synthesizer, ready to battle! We're not doing a direct comparison of the systems, nor are we arguing which one is best! We are putting together what we think made each system special, and why we still love the music and games today.
Get in your jumpsuit and climb in your 50 foot tall robot, it's time to save the world! Invaders from another planet are threatening our music, and we must stop them with our only defense! Great video game music with no topic restrictions!
Enjoy this mix of only classic video game music from Sega Genesis RPGs! Everything from Shining Force to Phantasy Star is here to rock your Friday 🙂
Gears, robots, machinery! (machina yah?) It's machine music for mechanical stages in video games! There's singing! Dancing! Rob mentions Turbo Teen! Pernell pitches the Back To The Future reboot with Yuzo Koshiro instead of Chuck Berry! It's a good time.
Rob and Pernell listen to great music from RPG titles on the Sega Genesis.
