In the middle of the 1970s, there were small game development studios popping up all over the world. In Melbourne, Australia; in 1977, one of those companies was Beam Software. Their initial games were developed for the home computers of the early 1980s, and they scored a whopper of an early hit in 1982's The Hobbit. At the tail end of the 80s, they finally made the move into home console development for the NES. A couple early stinkers in the two Back to the Future games did not slow the company down, and they started to get contracts to port arcade games to the console. In the early 1990s, there was a shift in the company's audio staff which saw Gavan Anderson and Tania Smith working on music and audio, but Tania ended up leaving to go on a world tour, and she asked Marshall Parker to be her replacement. Marshall was already 38 years old when he joined Beam Software in 1990, making him one of the older composers even at that time.

Due to the global success of the Pokemon franchise, it was obvious that a sequel to the popular Red, Blue, and Yellow versions was imminent. From 1995 until 2001, the world played the first generation Pokemon games and waded through a number of spinoffs awaiting a true sequel to be released for the series. In 1997 the first details emerged from Nintendo in the form of screen shots for Pocket Monsters 2: Gold and Silver, and even though the games wouldn't see release in Japan until 1999, the world anxiously awaited the release of these sequels. The second generation of Pokemon is small, especially in comparison to the first generation, as the second generation is only made up of five games, Pokemon Gold, Silver, Crystal, Pokemon Stadium 2 (Pokemon Stadium Gold and Silver in Japan) and Pokemon Puzzle Challange, these games, with the exception of Pokemon Stadium, are all available for the Gameboy Color, with Stadium available for the Nintendo 64.

Welcome to gaming in Retrospect, this is an article where I'll look back on a game or a series of games. In this article I'll be looking at the first generation of the Pokemon franchise with games for the Gameboy, Gameboy Color and Nintendo 64. The Pokemon franchise is the brain child of game developer Satoshi Tajiri, and since it's original Japanese release in 1995 has spawned more than 40 games, an anime series spanning nearly 500 episodes, and a manga series that has been serialized for the last twelve years. In this first article covering the series, I'll look at the games based on the first generation games from the main series games Pokemon Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow, the first two Stadium games, and the spinoff games Pokemon Pinball, Pokemon Trading Card Game, Pokemon Snap, and Hey You! Pikachu!.
