Modern and Retro Gaming Streams

On the 16-Bit Dad Twitch channel, we play through games from start to finish. This means that we all get to experience the twists, turns and shocks of those games together!

We also pride ourselves in being a Spoiler Free community where everyone is welcome!

My streams start at around 11pm, Thursday to Sunday. On top of that, as a variety streamer, my schedule alternates between a Square Enix week and a Non-Square Enix week.

Square Enix Week;

  • Final Fantasy VII

Non-Square Enix Week;

  • Fire Emblem: Three Houses

On Sundays, we play a Weekly Retro Showcase game, chosen at random from the Master List, which you can add your suggestions to from inside the Discord channel!

Club Shandwich

The Club Shandwich is a stream team of awesome people who help each other out and make great content! Full of variety streamers, you can rest assured that you’ll find both a streamer and a game that you’ll love!


The Retro Variety Dream Team is a Twitch stream team primarily focused on retro gaming. Consisting of casual retro game players, speed runners and everything in between, the team is great for all retro game fans!


At present, we are working our way through the Final Fantasy series for our Square Enix Streams. As such, I am sure you can tell that this is going to take a very long time. After all, each of these games is a long JRPG with some reaching over the 80 hours mark.

We will also include the spin-off titles in order of release compared to the main series.

Please note that, upon the release of the Final Fantasy VII Remake, that will take the spot of the Square Enix stream until it is complete.


For our Non-Square Enix week of streams, we are currently playing through Fire Emblem: Three Houses – a tactical RPG for the Nintendo Switch. This, like the Final Fantasy series, is a very large game with hours of content. We will be playing through the entirety of the story, as well as the DLC.

Here you can find a visual list of all of the games we have completed live on the 16-Bit Dad modern and retro game streams. By clicking on each one, you can find out more about the game, see the videos of the streams (although not all have videos now, unfortunately) and read my review of the game after playing through it on stream.
