Hi! I'm Chris Bucci. TurboGrafx fan, collector and retro-gaming nut.
And...welcome to Turbo Views.
Turbo Views is an online / ongoing retro-gaming review series focusing on
the U.S. TurboGrafx-16 video-game system (with the eventual goal
of reviewing all of the official released games).
But, you already knew this.
So, I guess the next question is, why was the series created?
In a way it all started back in mid-1991
when yours truly purchased his own TurboGrafx-16
system. Being a hardcore gamer, both in arcades
and with home-consoles, I was looking for something
new and fresh to enhance my gaming addiction.
At the time I was very "Nintendo dedicated"
owning both the NES and Gameboy exclusively and had
yet to make the next upgraded plunge.
Well, long story short, the TurboGrafx (and eventually the CD-ROM add-on)
became a part of my videogame pastime. In fact, through bargain bins and
numerous sales, I eventually acquired over 80 different titles. While I
eventually moved on to other platforms, the TurboGrafx has remained my
favorite nostalgic system.
For more information, make sure to check out the "Extra Vids" on this site.
In 2003 I found the last game to complete my American TurboGrafx collection
(which equals just a tiny bit under 140 titles). To share my enthusiasm with
the system, I wanted to create something online. The TurboGrafx had very little
presence and not very much recognition there. I wanted to change that.
In December 2008 Turbo Views began. Today, the reviews continue along
with PC-Engine import reviews, system close-ups and more. With the release of
Turbo Views on DVD, the process began of eventually cataloging them all.
I want to thank the fans and friends I have met as a result of doing these
videos. You guys are the best and one of the reasons I have so much
enthusiasm about it. If you're new here, make sure to subscribe at YouTube
and join me for the "reviewing them all ride."
