Slow dance/trance-song in 130bpm created by Eirik Blodoks Hafskjold (Skymarshall Arts) and Lars Erling Bolstad (Xenomorph). It's about way back when gaming was magical, and pretty much all we did. Mainly on the Amiga and C64 and various following consoles. And now ofcourse PC.

I sequenced this 70% in FLStudio7 XXL, 20% in Cubase SX3 and 10% in Adobe Audition 1.5. Instruments used are too many to be named, but the main VST was reFX QuadraSID. Vocals where recorded by a RØDE NT-a1 through a Roland UA-4FX and given a little delay, flanger and chorus. Vocals and lyrics are by myself.

Lyrics are as follows:

Niiiiiintendo .... wohoooo!

I remember a time that I was sitting alone.
And playing my Amiga at home.
Gaming Maniac Mansion and Lotus Turbo,
and U.F.O Enemy Unknown.
Sitting on my ass - doing nothing at all.
But managing in Ports of Call.
No chance in hell I would ever ever get bored of;
killing NVA in Dogs of War.

Yeah, I'm a gamer forever.
I'm gaming whatever.
Together with my lads 'til I die.
I'm gaming forever.
I'm gaming whatever.
Together with my ladies 'til I die.

Surprisingly, I still haven't made a review on this one. It debuted just as I started to frequent the site, and back then we had bangers from all over the place, but never quite like this one. This track is so relatable and fun — it holds a very special place in all our hearts — and for that, it's no wonder it has been immortalized on NG. For me, it's one of the defacto things that made NG so special, inviting, and fun.

10/10, long live the king.

Never forget where you came from. This one is a classic and still holds up so many years later.

First heard this ages ago, really does remind me of life back then, now that I decided to listen to it again...

Still amazing almost 9 years later :) ~S~

One of the best songs I have heard today good job
