I have had bad luck with Game systems my last was the Sega Dreamcast good enough games but it never created a share of the market and within 18 months you couldnt get games. I am thinking about the Xbox if anyone has used one let me know.
What ever happened to the fans of the original Nintendo! I still play that game system, and feel its more entertaining then 90 percent of the new systems out there. I mean who can forget classics like Super Mario Brothers, Castlevaina, and the Mega Man series.
Even better... How about Atari 2600 and 7800. Now were talking about classic gaming! Who could forget the original Pitfall.
Sorry I have not been around. I have been very busy.
Gregg, actually, I have become quite the Easy Bake oven chef. I have always been into gaming in the off fishing season. Dave, I remember the 2600, I think I have one at My mom's house buried in the basement.
Now that's a blast from the past. Was just telling my 13 Year old son, as he played his Playstation 2, about Pong. Black and white. only vertical moves, etc. He looked at me like I was talking about
dinosaurs. Of coures to him, I am a DINOSAUR. LOL. But sure kept us entertained back then. Thought I read somewhere that someone was putting pong back in some clubs as a "Retro" "Can you believe this" type of thing.
While we at it, any old slot car racers out there? Another oldie but goodie.
My son is a video game "junkie" and he is only 5! He only get to play it on weekends. I have a PS2 and play it from time to time. Ok more than that....Yes I still consider myself a kid!
I played Lord of the Rings II Towers and it was awesome! Took me two months off and on to finish!
My son plays Midnight Club II. Its a driving game. He loves it. I play with him now into it because of him.
Atari!!! I miss a good old game of combat. I remember begging my parents for it because it was just like the real thing!! No more quarters on Pacman or Tempest! I remember Intelevision, Colecovision (Donkey Kong was the bomb it even though the joystick sucked big time! and my Commodore Vic 20 and THEN the Commodore 64!!!!!!!!!
Most off all I remember robbie the robot when it first came out with nintendo! WOW. Time does fly!
just so you know.. most of the old games are available for free on pc by way of an emulator. all of the mainstay games.. defender, dig-sug, tempest, all sports games like techmo bowl football etc. my brother in law is a big gamer and has helped in converting a few. great stuff just to see them again.
