Video Games Nostalgia

There is something so comforting in thinking about things you enjoyed in the past. Over a social distance lunch in our break room, a few of our team members chatted about video games they loved to play while growing up. There was a sense of connection as one member would blurt out the title of a game and another was able to share “Oh, me too! I remember playing that game!”. Recalling these positive memories and connecting with others simply put us in a more positive mood for the remainder of the day.

As most of our crew is working from home, we used a Microsoft Teams channel to reach out to everyone and ask them what their favorite video game was during their childhood. Even through the chat channel, our team was able to connect over game titles they remembered.

Below is the list of some of the games our team members loved to play. Perhaps a few of the titles will bring back some memories for you. It may even prompt you to try out one of the games if you have never heard of it!
