How bout this for throwbacks!!!

Intellivision.... i have about 20 games
Commodore 64 with the floppy drive and 2 joysticks..... lol
Super Nintendo
Sega Genesis
AND the oldest one!!....APF tv fun first model...pong game....FROM THE 70's! We played this one for about 3 hours yesterday!

I certainly am glad I hung on to these, even though people are still looking for, and purchasing them!!
I may look at selling them someday, but they sure are FUN!

Nice, I hung onto my original Atari 2600 until last time we moved. It had stopped working and I spliced a wire into it for the VHF hookup....finally tore off the circuit board. I just was done dealing with moving it and 100 cartridges. But it was tons of fun to bust it out from time to time and play the old stuff.

One of my buddies from college built an acrcade emulator cabinet complete with trackball, coop joysticks and a full compliment of buttons (customizable for each game too!!!). Lots of effort into it but once it was done and loaded with games (on a regular computer inside the cabinet), you could basically play the real deal arcade versions of anything you could think of ever from the 80s-90s. We burned some hours playing some old classics.

My favorites list (various platforms):

Galaga
R-Type
Contra
Utopia
River Raid
Combat
Joust

Pretty geeky but so cool at the same time.
